Lydia Grace's art projects are starting to take over the front of the refrigerator, so I decided to make a cute display for the mud room door.  Now we can enjoy her artwork there too.  Here's how to make your own...

*wooden wall hanging board
*hot blue gun and glue sticks
*large clothespins
*large pieces of paper
*strong adhesive for the paper or a sticker maker
*Modge Podge
*sponge brush
*paint tray
*wooden letters that spell out ART, CREATE, or any other word or phrase

Happy Crafting and Creating!


  1. Hi Jen! I already have this idea on my blog but without the word "Art." If you could pop on over and see it. it's actually one of my first entries. But still really cute!

  2. Super cute! What a nice way to have it all together.
    I use vintage pant hangers to display my kids' art in their rooms.
    I'm following from Friendly Friday.

  4. GREAT idea! I have three artsy little grandkidlets spending the summer with me; think I'll do this with them this weekend. THANKS for the inspiration!
