I have to give full credit to my mom for this post. She texted me a few weeks ago to let me know she had an idea and sent me a few photos. I loved the idea and decided to work on it while we were in town for Memorial Day weekend.
I know plenty of parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, etc. are interested in ways to display kids’ artwork in a way that is a step above the tried & true refrigerator/magnet method. My great niece made the 4 seasonal paintings ( pictured above and below) and Mom liked them so much she decided to pull together some supplies to create a display that would not only showcase her art but still blend in nicely with their decor.
This is the perfect time of year for a project like this since kids are bringing home plenty of artwork as the school year closes. Also, this would be a perfect summer project to do on a rainy day.
Mom already had everything on hand for this project…artwork, scrap cardboard, scrap wood, paint and/or stain, brush, glue gun & pop tabs.
All it took was a few simple steps…
Quick, easy, and basically free depending what supplies you already have.
Much better than a magnet on a refrigerator if you ask me 🙂
