Artwork Display

Does your child come home an abundant amount of artwork every day?  And you don’t have the heart to throw it out while they are there? Well, here is a simple way for you to keep that work, at least for a week or so until a new supply comes in.  Before making this hanger, I had to explain that I could not display all of their work, so I needed their help to “choose” which ones they want to display. The others stay in a box under the bed and magically never fills up… So far, this theory has worked and of course, the precious ones stay as keepsakes.

Here is a list of things you will need. I found these items laying around the house and you can replace any of these with what you have around.

Find all your crafting supplies at Amazon.com

  • string, yarn, rope, or wire – I used a burlap rope.
  • 2 nails, hooks, or frame backings
  • name badge clips, clothes pin (painted – go crazy), paper clips
  • hammer
  • scissors
  • decorative tape, simple clear , masking tape, or duct tape

  1. First I had to decide where to display my children’s artwork. I ended it putting it in my sewing, craft, guest bedroom.
  2. Measure how long you want your rope.
  3. Tape the ends to make a loop.

  1. Put the screws, nails, hooks, or on the wall. You can tighten or loosen the string on how much you want it to sag in the middle.

  1. I used name badge clips and just put them on the rope.

  1. Last, ask your child or children to clip the work on themselves. It gives them a sense of accomplish and they are so happy to have contributed to decorating your room.
