As soon as our little one started going to preschool, I was inundated with the amount of cute artwork and crafts that he would bring home every week. Even on the weekends, he loves coloring and working on art at home.

Instead of piling it up on a shelf or in a closet, why not display your children’s artwork and make them feel proud?

That’s why we created this kid’s art gallery wall in our hallway. With 12 colorful clipboards hanging on the wall, there are lots of spots to display children’s artwork on this wall!

Maybe you’re wondering how do you hang a clipboard on the wall or how do you paint a clipboard? Don’t worry – we’re going to answer ALL of that in this step-by-step tutorial.

Before we jump into the clipboard wall tutorial, let’s take a look at this wall before we hung up the clipboards. It was pretty boring!!

Materials needed for hanging clipboards on wall:

Step 1. Plan your clipboard wall design & colors.

I wanted to incorporate that cute Live Life Simply sign into the clipboard wall, so I put that in the center and added a grid of 6 clipboards on each side.

If you have a smaller clipboard wall, you may want to use fewer clipboards.

Since we were doing 6 hanging clipboards on each side of the sign, I chose 6 colors that work well with our home decor (white, gray, mustard yellow for a little pop of something bright, and 3 shades of green).

Step 2. Paint clipboards.

I used a foam paintbrush to paint the acrylic craft paint on the clipboards. I did find that I had to do between 3 – 5 coats of paint, which really seemed to soak into the clipboards on the first couple of coats.

The white paint definitely needed the most coats to get good coverage – 5 coats total.

Yes, there are some brush strokes visible and it’s not perfect, but the real star of the show here is going to be hanging kid’s art!

They don’t bother me, but if you didn’t want them, you could use spray paint instead and just tape off the clips (or paint them).

Hang clipboards on wall.

No need to use nails, hanging clipboards on the wall is simple with Command picture hanging strips.

I just used one large strip in the middle at the top of the clipboard. The clipboards are pretty light so that held perfectly.
