If you are anything like me then you truly treasure the artwork of kids, whether it be your children, nieces, nephews, or grandchildren, we all love to brag now don’t we? On top of that, the children love for us to brag! The problem is in where to put it and how to display it.
I found a few solutions for that problem. One is this really cute idea where you use pants hangers to hang them on the wall. I particularly prefer this idea since my children are in art class and I can easily – notice the word “easily”- change them out each week.
To display them, I simply used some wall hooks (these are little hooks with a screw on the end). I spread them out in sporadic places within an area because the kids’ drawings are never the same size and it would have looked awkward if I had made all of the hangers uniform within the area
Each week I simply remove the old drawing and place it in a box and then replace it with the new piece of art!
For the entire project it cost me $4.86 for the three hangers and hooks.
Here are some other great samples of how to display your children’s art:
My sister, Andrea shows us how to display several pieces using identical and inexpensive, black & white frames. I love the way the colors just pop from the pages because of the black frame against the neutral wall color. Here is what she has to say:
After the Heart Of The Matter Online Conference, I decided to create a gallery in the foyer. I bought some document frames from Dollar Tree and dug through the kids work for 8×11 pages to frame.
The larger frames are all plastic poster frames. These came in handy for those larger projects that Grant created in Kindergarten. It came out really nice.
These are my favorite ones. The first one you cant really see but it is a “Rocket Ship” in space. The one below it is Grant’s blue foot print made into flowers and Gabriela’s pink foot print on a “Beach Flip Flop”. On the other side is the great Red, White and Blue! and a Thanksgiving Prayer with Gabriela’s “hand print turkey”.
This is so cute, Everyone loves it and it was easy, easy, easy!
