kid's art display tutorial


I wanted to find a simple yet decorative way to display Mason's artwork.  I knew
I would want to be able to change the art & didn't want to use tape or push pins.  

While in the office supply section of my local big box store the other day I saw
some cute mini clothes pins.  2 boxes of those little guys went home with me!

I knew exactly what I was going to do after looking at the various
wooden cutouts that are hanging up on his bedroom walls.

Here's what I used -
2 wooden cutouts
2 wooden knobs
Mini clothes pins
Ball of twine
Paint
E6000 glue
Command photo hangers



Paint the knobs to match your wooden cutouts.



After the paint is dry, glue the knobs to the cutouts.
Cut the twine about 3 feet long.  Make a loop &  knot on each end.
(make sure the loop is large enough to slip over the knob)



Place the photo hangers on the back of each cutout & on the wall.



Use the mini clothes pins to hang your baby's art on the wall!
Change as often as you like without ruining the wall!
