In 2020, decor ideas that are simple and inexpensive are exactly what I’m looking for. This layered wall decor took 10 minutes to put together and it can be changed up with my mood.
I’ve had this thrifted clipboard for ages and have used it for wall art before but decided to layer things up a little this time. I used some bits of scrapbook paper, a digital postcard printout from my shop, some thrifted beads and a scrap of fabric to give this arrangement depth and texture.
- Paper clips
- Focal Image
- Beads or yarn or trim
- Scrap fabric
- Secondary images
- Small pliers if needed
- Choose your focal image. Install it under the clipboard clip.
- Choose your secondary images and decide on placement - paperclip in place.
- Choose your embellishments and attach to desired area.
- Hang it up!
This project can be changed over and over as you desire for very little cost.

The Van Gogh image was literally torn out of a book I thrifted a few years ago. You could do the same or feel free to grab one of my free art printables. The other paper bits were cut apart pieces from a designer paper pad I picked up at the craft shop as well as one of my antique digital postcard printables.
Layering in the fabric scrap, twine and beads brings so much interest to the project. As the seasons or, my mood, change I can swap out one or two elements or change the entire thing for very little cost. It’s a great way to use up scraps and bits of leftovers.
You can lean the finished arrangement on a shelf, or mantel like I did or you can hang it almost anywhere on a nail or sticky hook. I love that it’s lightweight and easy to move around.
Making the little beaded dangles was so simple. I had thrifted some beaded jewelry awhile back and had taken the sections apart. Threading them onto paperclips took no time at all. You could use old earrings or tassels just as easily. Use what you have lying around the house. When they were done, I clipped them to the side of the clipboard.
This idea is so simple, I almost didn’t share it but right now I’m soaking up inspiration wherever I can find it and so I hope this sets your creative wheels in motion. When we are spending so much time at home it doesn’t hurt to have it filled with interesting things to look at. You don’t need to spend money or run around to all the craft shops to make this so it’s the perfect 2020 project – I’d be willing to bet you have enough kicking around your home. Heck, you don’t even really need a clipboard – you could use an old frame or the cover of a book or whatever you have as a base.
Sometimes accomplishing something small and pretty can really give us a boost in times of stress. This is a small little thing you can do to test drive your creativity and make a pretty place for your eye to land at home. I’d love to see your project if you make one.
