Revamped Dollar Tree Board

Look at these boards I found at the Dollar Tree! I thought I could do something else with them. I really like the industrial look. It is simple, black and white with just enough aged look. I used my old dictionary papers and some fun IOD transfers to make these simple boards. You could use your favorite decoupage papers, transfers, stamps, paints, stencils or whatever you like depending on the look you are going for! But for $1.25 you can’t go wrong with this fun work surface!


  • Don’t forget to sand off the glitter before decoupaging!
  • Water down paint if you want to add a wash
  • Try using colorful transfers that pop against your dictionary paper
  • Try using heat embossing for stamps to add dimension
  • Try using decoupage paper for your background (paint the board a solid color first)
  • Try to frame the board by masking off an edge and painting
  • Add sari silk, ribbon, or jute to the top of the board to hang or embellish
