Mini Clipboard/Clothespin Christmas Tree Ornaments

November 03, 2019
On Saturday, I shopped at a Walmart in Canada.  I had to check out the crafts department.

I found these adorable little Momenta 1 1/2" x 2" mini clipboards in the bridal craft section.  They were priced at $3.47 for a package of two.  I picked up a few.

I also purchased a $2 package of clothespins.

Since I will be using these for craft projects, I brushed Varathane Weathered Wood Accelerator on each of the clothespins.  I went back to touch up areas that were not gray enough, or missed, on the second coat.

These little clipboards are sooooo cute!

They may be available at Deserres Canada, Walmart, Overstock, or Amazon.

Earlier this fall, I purchased this two page set of Show-Offs Adhesive Holiday Icon Stencils at Hobby Lobby.

The stencils are small enough to work on holiday ornaments.  They sell for $6.99 (less if you use the 40% off coupon).

I then made a small card stock template to fit the clipboard, and traced it on plain white card stock.

I stuck the deer stencil onto one of the white card stock rectangles, and stenciled it with a very narrow stencil brush, and Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in CAVIAR. 

I used the snowflake, tree ornament, and holly stencils too.

If you like color, you could paint the clipboards and stencil in Christmas colors as well.  I tend to go with small trees these days and neutral ornaments.

 The last step was to position the clipboard, just above the wire, on one of the gray clothespins and hot glue it in place.

 I have a thing for clipboards!

 I pick up vintage clipboards whenever I find them!
