Hanging Children’s Artwork

June 28th, 2011 by zoe 3 Comments

The kids have piles and piles of cute little drawing they have done for me that I really do love.  The question always is, WHAT THE HECK to do with it all.

The other night while I should have been sleeping I had this idea and here it is …..

I just sewed strips of fabric onto the tops of the pictures and threaded them with dowel rods and sticks with the bark peeled of. I then strung them up with an assortment of ribbon, rick rack and fabric.  Getting a little carried away I also stacked some colorful flowers cut from felt onto the tacks!

I can see reusing the wooden hangers and easily swapping out the artwork by simply sewing new strips of fabric to the top. Slide on new art work and you have an easy way to display the kids paintings.  I bought these old sheet music scores from the 20′s at a tag sale and couldn’t really get myself to frame them  – now they look kind of fun hanging with the boys drawings.
