Your Child’s Art

If you’re a parent and are looking for a solution to all the scribbles your child(ren) give you, do what Erika from Small Shop did and incorporate them with other art to create a gallery wall.

Here Erika framed one of her daughter’s pieces and hung up two more canvases for a color cohesive look.

I honestly thought her daughter’s two far right pieces were created by the same artist who painted the center one. No offense, fancy artist.

If your child is really going to town with the drawings, use them all up to make one large wall of art. Same size and frames for total harmony.

Incorporating your child’s art makes their room feel more personal and frees you from any art searching stress. This is also a sure bet your child feels extra special seeing their art hung up and framed.

A clean and crisp look in a hallway.

Framed children’s art in neon frames make for a way more interesting backsplash.

This method also allows for easily changeable art to showcase a whole new collection.

No more stashing your kid’s art in a drawer. Or feeling guilty for wanting to toss it.

Happy Wednesday!

    That last one with the green frames is so kid cool, I can barely contain myself…All I need is the fabulous kitchen and I’m covered, pretty sure the kiddos are *prolific* artists (c:

    I love this idea! It makes your kid feel pretty special too. My mom used to hang up my art, but never could tell what I had painted. I guess I was an abstract artist before my time 😉

    Erika’s daughter is like a secret painting savant!

  4. My sister does this really well and I’ve always admired her for it. She has a gallery wall hanging in the kitchen as well as in the kid’s bathroom. When I visit, my niece and nephew like to drag me around the house and show me their most recent artwork.

    So sweet, love it. I actually commissioned a few pieces from my toddler a couple weeks back.

    Aww! Thank you for the shout out! Actually, Leighton thanks you. She is sitting next to me looking over my shoulder. And now she wants to paint again!

    Love that crib image with the white frames!
