Polka Dotted Clipboards for Teacher Gifts

I love polka dots and I love clipboards. And together, they're a simple (yet, adorable) gift! And they're easy on the wallet, y'all. See how to make these Clipboard Teacher Appreciation Gifts below. Grab the Rainbow Teacher Printables (with coordinating tags) here. 

Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

Clipboard Teacher Appreciation Gifts Supplies:

  • You'll need the obvious: clipboards!
  • Chalk-Style Paint (I love WAVERLY!)
    • Since clipboards are usually a masonite-type of material, you'll definitely want chalk-style paint so it adheres well to the board. Masonite isn't always paint-receptive, so chalk paint helps you in this area.
  • Standard Crayola Marker (I literally grabbed one from the junk drawer). If you want smaller polka dots, use a pencil's end with a fresh eraser.

How to Paint Polka Dots

Creating Your Clipboard Teacher Appreciation Gifts:

You'll actually use the wrong end of your marker to create the polka dots on the clipboards.

Painting Clipboards
Simply dip your marker's end into the paint and get a generous amount of paint onto it.

Then dab your marker's paint-filled end on your clipboard to form your dot. You'll need to reload your marker's end after every couple of dots. Keep going in a random (or not, your call) pattern. Allow the clipboard to dry for at least two hours before using it.

I put the process into a video, too:
