Happy Monday morning and first days of summer! In honour of the kids being home here are our favourite ways to showcase children’s art.
I love making children’s artwork look fancy. It not only makes your kids feel extra special, but it also allows the art to hang seamlessly amongst the décor in the rest of your home, like in the dining room or main living area. A great way to elevate children’s works through custom framing is using a bottom heavy, or drop-bottom, mat design.
Another great option is to keep it classic with a simple white mat and elegant frame.
Shadowboxes work so well for children’s art because the depth accommodates the sometimes 3-D finishes. This heart looks like it’s floating on its custom pedestal!
Another way to work around art with dimension is by simply not adding glass to your end piece.
Incorporating unusual backdrops to your children’s art adds a playful element to the design, which of course works so well with little masterpieces. Try patterned wallpaper, cardboard or cork.
We all know children produce lots of art! So having a display that can hold all of the pieces and as well easily highlight the work of the day is a must! This design has a backing that easily pops off so that a new art piece can be front and centre while the other works get stored in a folder that actually sits within the frame!
A quick DIY can achieve an amazing display as well.
