How Does She display kid’s art? I knew I could find a few ideas, I had no idea I would find this many!!! I am excited to present all these awesome ideas – I am so inspired to get my kids to make more art, just so I can display it!
#1 Collage It
This is Alison’s idea to take lots of art, shrink it on the computer and put it into one collage. Child’s art 18 into 2!
#2 Group together on the wall
I love this idea because it is so easy to update whenever you want and it looks GREAT!
The Land of Nod
Cookiemag suggests taking pictures of the art and grouping the pictures together into a display on a cork board
#3 Treat it as art
Frame it Lil Davinci art cabinet
This frame allows you to easily switch pictures and even store some behind the most recent art being displayed
Blissfully Domestic has a great tutorial on displaying framed art.
Turn it into art on Canvas!!! This is one of my favorite ideas – pretty much anything on canvas just looks classy.

Turn doodles into a real work of art - Summer from Fine Doodles does some amazing work with your kid’s doodles – you gotta check out her website!
#3 Take it with you and show it off!
Analiese will turn it into a clay pendant for you
or Totally out of Hand will turn it into silver or gold jewelry!
Snap Totes will turn images into bags or pillows – picture your kid’s art on the bag above.
