10 Creative Ways to Display Children's Art

I am so ridiculously excited for the day when Violet starts to create some artwork of her own. I absolutely love children's art and think it is important to display it in a beautiful way your home. Not only does it show your children that their creations are valuable to you, it is also very beautiful and can really add life to any space. (Case in point):

Here are a few of my favorite ways in which to display your little one's masterpieces:

1. Traditional frame wall:

 2. Metal clips:

3. Cable system:

4.Using larger, permanent frames, but clipping or taping in the art allows you to rotate it more easily:

5. Grid collage:

There are a few different ways to do this. The first is to have someone else do it for you, but this can be very pricey.

If you have a little computer-savvy and a bit of time, you can create the same effect yourself for less:

And if you don't get along with computers, here is a more hands-on technique:

And if that looks intimidating, a smaller, more friendly version:

6. Magnets! You can use trays like this project, or most anything made of metal:

Or, of course, there's magnetic paint. Layer it beneath chalkboard paint or just your regular old wall color for a cleaner look.

7. Clipboards:

8. Make it into a book. Again, this is something that you could pay someone else to do, or DIY:

9. Clothespins. Go crazy with some chicken wire, or keep it simple with a bit of string:

10. Wall decals. Another, more whimsical way to have the look of a permanent frame wall but with the ability to rotate the art:

Do you have any creative ways for displaying children's art? I'd love to hear about them!


  1. I really like the idea of using hangers like this image I pinned:

    I think this is a great solution for kid's art because you can create an interesting, grid-like pattern with the hooks you hang the hangers on but you still have the flexibility to switch out the different artwork.

  2. I love the cable system, the chalkboard wall, and the frame decals! I can't wait for the deluge of artwork either! I've already had Adelaide make a painting: http://ourlittlelentil.blogspot.com/2011/06/first-painting-never-too-young.html

  3. A friend of mine would tape the artwork to her child's door. I believe on her birthday, she then would take her picture in front of her door. She has a amazing collection of pictures.

  4. Love these ideas! I'm definitely tucking away this post for future reference.

  5. Love idea #4! I think I'll try it!

  6. Love idea #4! I think I'll try it!

  7. I'm in love with these tips! We have art all over our house, and I love how many of these ways are so easily changable- with new art projects daily this will really keep things creative. Thanks!
