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’s 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 tutorial, let’s take a look at this wall before we hung up the clipboards. It as pretty boring!!

Materials for hanging clipboards on wall:

Clipboards

Acrylic craft paint in white , gray, dark green, medium green, light green, mustard yellow (I added a few drops of black paint to make it less bright)

Command picture hanging strips

Foam paint brush

Tape measure

Plan your clipboard wall design & colors.

I wanted to incorporate this cute 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 wall, you may want to use less clipboards on your wall.

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).

Paint clipboards.

I used a foam paint brush 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.

Display kid’s artwork.

Last but not least, hang up your kid’s artwork! I let Cal go through his stack of artwork and chose his favorites to hang up on the clipboard wall.

Hanging the clipboards on the wall was so easy! The hardest part, honestly, was painting them and it wasn’t hard… just time consuming.

I love that my kids can walk by this wall and feel proud of their creativity on display!
