Mommy Monday: Kids Wall art

One step at a time we are getting closer and closer to having Sidney's room done.  I'm still searching for a bookcase and I think I'm going to break down and go to Target. It just needs to be complete, and why are bookcases so hard to find?

However, I did get her artwork hung on the wall. Although, it's still not complete. We need to hang her hooks so she can hang all her medals.

Here is how I did this and all the measurements were perfect and easy to hang without putting multiple holes in the wall for each frame.

I started by laying 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper on the floor and taping them all together.

Then, Sidney and I tried different picture frame compositions and the above was the winner.

Then, I traced the outer edge of each frame and measured where the nail should be.

I taped it to the wall and MOST IMPORTANTLY I used a level to make sure the frames were straight. After adjusting the paper I hammered the nails into the spots I marked.

Then I carefully took the paper off the wall and hung the pictures.

I'll try to do a full room reveal soon!

This is such a cute way to display your child's art.

  1. Laying out the paper like that is a really great idea for making a gallery wall! I'll have to keep this in mind when I (eventually) get around to doing mine! :)
