With the massive amounts of artwork my children create, it can be difficult to find ways to display them without filling up my fridge or tucking them away in folders that are already overfilled but I’ve found some great ways to put their art on display in my house. Try one of these ideas to show off their work.
Picture Frames. It’s easy to find inexpensive, pretty frames that can be used to put artwork in. You can use big or small pictures in the frames and it is easy to make it work with your décor. Just glue the art to a piece of scrapbook paper cut to fit the frame and display it on walls, shelves, or desks.
Art Album. Not all art can be displayed. Creating an album to hold the rest is easy to do with smaller pictures. Using a piece of scrapbook or construction paper cut to the size you want for the album to be, glue the picture to the center and laminate. Then punch a hole on the top corner and tie with a pretty ribbon or a binder ring.
Collage. Instead of trying to display a lot of smaller pieces around the house, arrange art work that has a similar color or theme on a larger paper and create your own collage. Your child can work on this one with you and add words or pictures from magazines that fit the theme.
Calendar. Similar to creating the art album, you can use laminated pictures with print out calendars and binder rings to create a personalized calendar. When it is complete stick it above your child’s desk or use it as a unique gift for family members.
Clothes Pins. String a piece of craft rope across your wall and use clothes pins to hang featured art pieces on the wall. This display is my favorite because once the string is up it is easy to replace pictures with new ones. The one in my house runs across the wall above my son’s desk showing off his art matted to black paper.
