Memories for Mom- DIY Clip Board

by Sha Khezri

A mother is a lovable person who supports you through all life’s moments- good and bad. These moments are what strengthen your bond and make her the amazing woman she is.  This Mother’s Day let her know how much you are thankful for, by making her a personalized clip board. With this she’ll be able to place all of her favorite pictures, drawings, and recipes in one place, to view with love.

To create this clip board you will need the following materials:

Wood Boards

Paint

Painters Tape

Small Roller or Small Brush

Screws

Bulldog clips

Step 1: Paint your wood boards

Use a small paint roller. or brush, to paint the base color of your boards. Allow to dry and apply a second coat if desired.

Base coat color: ULTRA PURE WHITE

Step 2: Outline your design

Once the base coat has completely dried, create a customized design on your board with painters tapes.

Step 3: Paint design

Paint in your design in the color/s of your choice. I used Fish Pond P440-3 and Indian Sunset M170-5.

Step 4: Remove tape

Once the paint has dried, carefully remove the painters tape.

Step 5: Measure and mark your boards

With a ruler, measure and mark on your board where you’d like to place your clips.

Step 6: Attach screws

Drill guide holes, then small screws to hang your clips upon.

Step 7: Hang clips

Mount your boards on the wall and hang items your mom might like such as photos, drawings, or a Mother’s Day card.

We wish all the moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Colorfully yours,

Sha Khezri
