Is it teething time for your little one?
Kids can create copious amount of artwork and while it is all lovely to look at, the trouble starts when they kick up a fuss because you have hidden their masterpieces in a drawer. It’s not because you don’t think they’re any good, it’s simply due to a lack of space in your home to display it.
If your house has started to look more like a crèche than the sanctuary that you crave for, why not try these creative ways to display art:
Picture frames
Purchase several white frames and use them to display your child’s most colourful work. They can actually look really nice set against a plain background. If you keep the frames the same and line them up along one wall they will bring a subtle hint of colour into your home and still look neat and tidy.
If you have a playroom in your home you can create a washing line of art. You can even do this in your little one’s bed room or the kitchen. Simply get a few small coloured or wooden pegs and a piece of string. Secure the string to the wall and hang the pictures from the pegs just like you would clothes on a washing line.
Fake frame
Show your little one that you can be arty as well by placing glassless frames around the pictures on the wall. Go for a number of different sizes and shapes and dedicate one wall or a section of a wall to your child’s artwork. It will look pretty funky and your little one will be proud of their art wall.
Paper your child’s wall
This might be a little mad but instead of papering your child’s walls, use their creative drawings. Simply paint the walls white and either use sellotape or Blu Tack to secure the pictures. To make this effective you will need to put the pictures right beside each other or let them overlap. You don’t have to do the entire room although by the time they leave school you will have enough art to paper a whole town.
