Art on Display

We love to do craft and art projects around here. The problem is they pile up quickly, or end up being trashed or stashed in a closet so they don’t clutter up the house, (ie,the refrigerator) I HATE clutter and wanted a cute way to display the kids art and showcase the fun things we make.

So I created a simple and easy “Art Gallery” for Aubrey to showcase her latest work. She loves to show people what she did and we can easily rotate things out to make room for new “masterpieces.”

Here are the super simple steps to create your own.

1). Find a board. I hit up our local Habitat Restore and found a cabinet drawer front panel for $2.2). Sand it down, fill in any holes & then paint desired color.

4). Place saying on the board. I used my Cricut to cut out vinyl letters, but you could do almost anything (stickers, stencil, ect.)3). Measure location for each clothespin and carefully drill clothespins in place. I saw this great idea to customize the clothes pins at Twice Remembered and used it for my clothespins.. Hang it up & your ready to display your little one’s art.I love it! Now our little Picasso has a place to proudly display what she made… like this spooky skeleton craft, cute huh?!
Most of the supplies I already had (vinyl, paint, modge podge, clothespins) so the total cost for this project was $3.
