Kids Art Display

Pin It
So, I've had a problem for a while.  

It looks like this:


This the result of three things.

1.  Miss J LOVES "arts and crafts" time.
2.  Miss J can find tape, no matter where I hide it, and help herself to a piece.
3.  Miss J loves to help me "decorate".


So, I've been trying to come up with a solution. 


I mean, I love Miss J and Mr. A's art, but I don't love it taped randomly all over the house.





Some kind of art display was in order.  



I loved these ideas:

I'll give you the full how-to later this week, but for now, here is my art display!

here's both boards:

I loooove these big clips:
Now, it looked a little bare above the boards.....it needs some vinyl!




Perfect.  No more artwork taped to my walls!

  1. Oh Sarah! This is a totally awesome idea. I have art work taped to my walls all over the kitchen walls, fridge and laundry room doors. It's a crazy mess! This is an excellent idea and I think it would be a unique display for parents to see when they come to view my house once I start accepting children for my in-home daycare. Thank you so much for sharing!!!

  2. I've always liked similar ideas too but have never executed them. Your take is lovely. The wall vinyl is particularly wonderful.
