She {hearts} Children’s Artwork

I now have 3 little ones regularly supplying me with pieces of their soul on paper. While that is a little melodramatic, my oldest at least, does put a lot time and herself into her drawings, and I don’t like to toss them quickly. However the fridge can only hold so much. In my quest to find a solution to display my children’s art in a creative and chic way, I came across so many good ideas.

I love how simple and CHEAP this one is. Two old spools of thread anchored to the wall, twine tied between them and cloths pins.

This one is a system you have to buy. While it looks ultra modern with all those clean lines {drool}, it’s just a little too pricey.

I think this is an awesome idea, and one that I would like to do eventually. Scan artwork, re-size and make a collage. Again clean, modern, and you could fit A LOT of artwork into one frame.

I like the simplicity of this one as well. Curtain rod and clips. Switch out pictures with ease.

This idea looks so whimsical. I love the different colors and shapes of the frames. Simple wire strung across an empty frame. It looks completed and contained, while still giving ease to trade out masterpieces.

And lastly clipboards. This is what I ended up going with. I hung ours with hooks so they can be taken down and used if desired. My thought is to display both artwork and pictures of the kids. I’ve been really happy with it, and so has my 7 year old. My only complaint is our clipboards are a very similar color to our wall, so it kind of blends. I need to eventually paint the wall or the boards so there is more contrast.

How do you proudly display your children’s (or grandchildren, nieces/nephews, students, etc) artwork?
