Make a huge statement with these DIY Canvas Clipboards. Perfect for displaying your favorite Instagram photos.

I’m having a bit of a clipboard moment. If you saw these , you know what I’m talking about. Clipboards are such an affordable way to make quick and easy décor. The same is true for giant clipboard. Oh. What’s that? You’ve never seen a giant clipboard? Welp – that’s about to change, girlfriend. We’re going to DIY some and they are the perfect way to create an oversized Instagram gallery of your favorite images.

With my Canon iP8270, I printed out a stack of 13×13 colorful images and created giant 20×20” clipboards using artist canvases. It’s a easy DIY and an affordable way to add some life to a big, blank wall. And since they’re clipboards, you an switch out the image whenever you want.

You’ll need:

  • A 20×20” artist canvas
  • A clipboard clip like these…did you even know such an nifty little item existed?!
  • ¾” wood block – I picked mine up from the wood crafts aisle at Michael’s. You can also cut your own from a larger wood plank.
  • 5/8” wood screws
  • ruler
  • strong double sided tape, like Scor-tape
  • painter’s tape
  • assorted craft tape
  • drill or screwdriver (not pictured)

Use the ruler to find the center of the front of the canvas, and drill/screw the clipboard directly into the wood on the back of the canvas.
