We all love our kid's art and want to share
their little masterpieces with the world...right!
There are lot's of options when choosing to hang kids
art, which go WAY beyond the magnet on the fridge.
My sweet son wrote a song on the back of a manilla
envelope. It has great importance and a sence of
antiquity when placed in an detailed gold frame with
some nice wide matting.
The envelope was already torn and was a little dirty
from going through the mail, but no worries; it just
adds to the charm!
Here we have a series of little pages, a book if you will. I couldn't resist. I unbound the book and placed the series in a simple frame. I like that he used different colored paper, it makes for a little punch at the end.
Here's a creative way to display your child's treasured masterpieces! This is from Amy Bayliss over at Cajun Joie De Vivre. I love the simplicity of utilitarian objects and these pant hangers sure fit the bill. Plus, this tecnique is flexible, as you can change the art on a regular basis.
And here's another idea from Cajun Joie De Vivre.
Another simple arangement, this time with poster frames. Amy Bayliss says that these type of frames are oversized and perfect for those large kindgarten pieces that are so adorable.
I like to go to flea markets and estate sales where there is never a shortage of inexpensive frames.
Why not paint them in chic colors (ala skittles).
I think these make great conversation pieces themselves, but with some humor they are even more wonderful.
Whimsy at it's best!
(I LOVE this version of American Gothic! The look she's giving him is absolutely priceless!)
And then there's always that mighty statement piece! If you think it looks like a modern masterpiece...
frame it like it is one!
Bottom line: enjoy your kid's, make them feel as special as they are, and celebrate their lives & accomplishments (even if that's with magnets on the fridge!)
