DIY Clipboard Picture Frame

I was at the store other day and I saw the cutest clipboard picture frame. I immediately fell in love with it! I picked it up to look at the price – and it was seriously $35. Which I was NOT willing to pay!! I decided I could make one on my own – and I loved the way it turned out! (Don’t mind the pictures – it’s been a snow storm and I had to take them all indoors with a flash!)

 

Here’s what I used:
DIY clipboard frame step one
1 6″x6″ wood square (I found this in the wood section of Michael’s for $3.50)
1 silver clip (I found this one in the clearance section in a pack of 5 for $3!)
Wooden piece for the top (I found that little one in a pack of two for $0.99)
Wooden pieces for the bottom (I decided to glue those two together – they were $1 each – but you could also use a candle stick bottom)
Paint or stain
Sandpaper (optional)
Glue gun

Directions:
Paint all the wood pieces (and the clip if you want!).

Once dry, you can sand the edges (I did this to give it a more unfinished look) – but you don’t need to.

Next, I glued the bottom round pieces together with a glue gun (you could also use wood glue) and then I glued the square piece to the bottom piece. I glued the tiny knob to the top, and then the clip to the front.

I made sure it was completely dry, and then I clipped my picture to the front (it’s one of my favorites from my wedding – that Kenton Anderson is AMAZING!). And voila! You are done! Under $10 and finished in under an hour – now that’s my kind of craft!
