If you’re like most parents, your kids are always creating masterpiece artwork!  I love each and everyone, but can’t say I love to have my fridge cluttered up.  So, here’s a quick, cheap, and cute solution!  Create this frame which will display the interchanging artwork of your little one(s), in under 30 minutes!

Supplies needed:

  • A wood frame (I found these 11×14 frames clearanced at Michael’s for $2.99!  I grabbed quite a few of them for future projects too)
  • Paint of your choice/paint brush OR spray paint in a can
  • Thin wire
  • Small clothespins (mine were painted from a previous project already)
  • Scissors

Steps:

  • Paint the frame, and clothes pins in your desired color(s)
  • Allow to dry completely (acrylic paint dries in just minutes)
  • Measure the wire across the inside of your frame, add 2″ to either side. Cut.
  • Secure the wire to the frame (you can staple, or wrap the wire around the open detail of the frame)
  • Secure your child’s artwork to the wire, with 2 clothespins, making sure it’s balanced.

 

All done!!  So cute.  And you can change it as frequently as your child creates his next Picasso. This week, we checked out a fun artist studio for kids, and brought these two pieces home to display.  These frames are hung right next to their bedroom doors, so they can always look up proudly at their artwork.
