To reduce the precious-artwork clutter, here are a few thoughtful ways to present the favorites and feel no shame when you toss the rest.
A chalkboard wall display is something the whole family can contribute to. Plan a family night when you all create, design and play together on the wall. It will be a fun memory, and the work of art will be even more sentimental, because it’s a snapshot of your family during the season you’re in.
Don’t be shy about providing direction for the colors that will be displayed on the spines of your books. Since you’re inviting the little ones to help with a decorating project in the home, it only makes sense that the colors complement the room’s aesthetic. Although the spine of every book will be colored or painted uniquely, the whole collection of books will look pulled together. Honestly, this is a great project even if you don’t have kids!
How to incorporate your child’s artwork into a gallery wall depends on your style. Selecting art in a similar color palette will create a cohesive and pulled-together look. For a gallery wall like the one shown, you’ll want varying sizes and orientations. Make a big statement about your kid’s creativity by making his or her work the larger, commanding piece that anchors the collection. Use one or multiple smaller pieces for variation on the wall. This personal touch will mean so much to you and your family.
