DIY Fancy Desk Pad

For today’s DIY, I’m going to show you an easy and wonderful way you can brighten and fancy up your desk.

This is a very cost-effective DIY, I think the most expensive thing I purchased was the mat itself and it was $10, no joke.

What you’ll need:

  • Clear Desk Pad (I got mine at Ikea)
  • Spray Glue
  • Gift wrap of your choice (I got mine at Dollarama)
  • Exacto or Craft Knife
  • Cutting Pad


Step One:

Roll out your wrapping paper. Lay your desk pad on top to figure out where you want to line it up for the gluing process.


Step Two:

Once you’ve decided, take your spray glue and spray the back of the pad. Once that’s done, lay it onto the wrapping paper and press down hard, making sure that the glue is settled. Feel free to let it rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the glue to solidify the pad in place.

Step Three:

Lay your cutting board underneath the pad. Using your Exacto knife or craft knife, start to carefully cut away the excess wrapping paper. Continue to do so around the entire pad.

Step Four:

Now lay your desk pad back onto your desk and you are complete! I can’t tell you how much this just fancy’s up your desk and gives it that extra pop!
