DIY Industrial Letters Clip Board


This is a super simple craft that turns out looking so really nice. The best part about it is that it's lightweight... thanks cardboard! This clip board will look great hanging artwork, sports calendars, or lists. Perfect for the kids room, mud room or kitchen! 
Supplies:
  • Your choice 8'' paper mache letters {I found mine here}
  • 1 sheet of plywood, length of your choice {similar found here}
  • clothespins
  • thumb tacks
  • hot glue gun
  • metallic spray paint for letters
  • choice spray paint color for plywood
  • 2-4 sawtooth hangers
Directions:
  • Place thumb tacks in the letters to resemble screws in metal
  • Spray paint plywood, letters and clothespins
  • Once all is dry, hot glue clothespins to plywood, measure the distance between each one equally
  • Hot glue the letters over the clothes pins
  • Attach with glue the sawtooth hangers to the back of the plywood and at the top of one or two letters
  • Hang and enjoy!

  6. This is really cute. Do you think that even though it's lightweight that it can still hold more than paper?
