DIY Artwork Display

Buggy has been quite the budding artist lately.  She especially has been into painting handprints, creating rainbows, and drawing pumpkin patches.

I love her creations. I love that she loves to draw.  I do not love a ton of paper lying around.  So what’s a mama to do?  Utilize some wall space, of course!  I decided to make a homemade clothesline, but for artwork, in the playroom.  So I went to Michaels and bought some wood blocks and painted them brown.

Then, I attached some picture hangers to the back (they just hammer in).

While I was at Michaels, I also picked up some of these pre-painted cuties.  I used a hot glue gun to attach some jute rope to the back of them, and then glued the whole thing to the front of the wooden blocks.

Then, Linds and I stretched out the rope (almost taught) and centered it on the playroom wall.  Dave hammered in some nails, and we hung the wood blocks on them.  We hung them higher up (by the top of the door frame), so that I will have enough space to add another clothesline underneath if I need to.

I hot glued some ribbon onto clothespins and hung up some of my favorite Jayna-creations for all to see!
