DIY Clipboard Wall Art

I took a break from the Craft and Create With Cricut Challenge last month, but I am back with an easy project for you today. This month's theme is Home Decor and I am re-purposing a clipboard into wall art, using paint and pattered iron-on vinyl. It is the perfect addition to a gallery wall or office area.

Supplies needed for DIY Clipboard Wall Art


Cricut Machine
Cricut LightGrip Cutting Mat
Cricut Iron-on Vinyl
Cricut Weeding Tool
Cricut EasyPress 2
Cricut EasyPress 2 Mat
Clipboard
Paint (optional)

If you would like, you can paint the hardware and corner design on the clipboard, letting it dry before you get started with the quote.

To create the iron on quote:


Open Cricut Design Space and create a New project. I chose to add text with the quote "Be Still & Know" from one of my favorite Bible verses. Place the vinyl shiny side down on the cutting mat, Mirror the image in the software, select your material, and start the cut. Once the cut has completed, remove the vinyl from the cutting mat and weed the excess vinyl from the design. Place it face up on the clipboard.

Preheat the EasyPress 2 according to the material instructions and apply heat to the design until the timer on the Easy Press 2 beeps. Carefully peel away the liner, making sure the vinyl is stuck to the surface. If it is not, then apply the EasyPress 2 again.
