DIY Wonder Quote Clipboard

Earlier this week, my 9 year old and I went to see a pre-screening of WONDER, which is now out in theaters. WONDER is based on the New York Times best-selling book by the same name. In both the book and the movie, August (Auggie) is a young boy with a severe facial deformities who has been homeschooled his whole life. He is now entering Middle School as a 5th grader. We all know middle school isn’t the easiest time in a child’s life. Most children fit it. But August discovers the true meaning of “Why blend in when you were born to stand out.”

I was expecting to enjoy the movie. I really loved it! Without sharing any spoilers, I can tell you that the movie helps you understand not just Auggie’s challenges, but the very real challenges of the seemingly-typical people around him. It is filled with memorable lines and quotes, including Mr. Browne’s Precepts. I loved the quotes so much that I lettered one onto a clipboard! Let me show you this fun DIY WONDER quote clipboard!

It was hard to pick a single quote from the movie – I might have more clipboards in my future!

To make this DIY Wonder Quote Clipboard, I used:

Paint Pen
Pencil with eraser
Fine-tipped black pen

supplies for DIY WONDER quote clipboard

I close an aqua-colored paint pen as a nod to the color of the book cover, but you can choose any color you like.


Start by peeling the plastic wrapping off the clipboard.

remove plastic

Draw lines across the clipboard, an inch apart.

mark lines

Lightly letter in the words. This will give you a chance to play with the spacing.

write lightly

Trace over your penciled-in lettering with the paint pen. Then write over it a second time. This second coat will make the paint more opaque.

write with paint

Use the fine-tipped pen to outline the letters. This will help them stand out.


It is that easy! Your clipboard is complete!
