Displaying kid's art

While doing a little virtual window shopping on One Kings Lane this weekend, I came across Wexel Art, a company that sells floating acrylic frames. They look super modern, but the best part is they make it easy to change out whatever you put inside.

A few of these frames hung together would make a great display filled with family photos, prints or even better, your kid's artwork.

We all know kids love to paint, draw and scribble! I think it's great when parents display their children's artwork around the home. It adds so much personality to a room! When my kids are old enough I plan to do the same with the things they create.  

Besides sticking the little one's masterpieces to the fridge with a magnet, I thought it'd be fun to share some ideas I've been keeping for integrating kid's artwork into your decor without it taking over or looking silly. Besides the floating frames above, here's a few other ways to get started.

1. Hang a gallery wall of vintage empty frames and secure a bulldog clip inside. Fill with artwork. Add and subtract pieces as desired!

2. Simply arrange art directly on the wall and secure with pieces of fun colored washi tape. Another easy to remove solution. Search Etsy.com for a huge assortment of colored and patterned washi tape.

 3. Paint a wall with magnetic paint and top with chalkboard paint (Rustoleum makes these products). A place to create and display all in one!

4. Purchase inexpensive, simple matching frames and hang in a grid for a bold but cohesive display.

How do you feel about kids artwork on your walls? I'm all for it!
