DIY Art Gallery for Kids


This is an easy and inexpensive way to display not only your child’s art but also important papers relevant to your family members like schedules and messages.

You will need:

– some sort of string/rope

– clothespins

– poster frame (any other large frame)

– hot glue gun

First, you need to remove the plastic or glass front and the back of the frame leaving you with only the frame itself. The frame I used was a $25 frame from walmart. They had cheaper, thinner frames but I wanted it to make more of a statement.

Then you can paint the frame if you want. I chose to paint my black frame a bright, cherry red to go with some other red things in my living area.

After painting the frame cut the string/rope to lengths that will extend across the width of the frame.

Then, using your hot glue gun, glue strips of string/rope across the width of the frame at varying intervals. I didn’t even measure. I just eyeballed it and it worked great.

You are now done! All you have to do is hang it on the wall and clip your clothes pins on!

I hope you like it! It makes it really easy to display things as soon as they come in the door instead of having to go through the pile of school papers from the week.
