Instead of letting your child’s drawings clutter your fridge door or countertops, hang a few artfully and don’t feel guilty about tossing the others.
This is a great idea for art that doesn’t typically fit in a normal frame—especially if your child’s drawings have 3D elements like cotton balls or pipe cleaners. Take some old frames or buy a few cheap ones at the craft store and cover them in spray paint for a uniform look. String monofilament across the frames and hang pictures from it with tiny clothespins. It makes it easy to switch out artwork as your child brings more home, too.

This is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to stylishly display your kid’s artwork. All you need is twine, clothespins, and some nails. You can also make it into another art project by having your kids decorate the clothespins with paint before you hang the drawings up.

This one is a big investment, but think of it as a professional piece that you can have for years to come. Designer Jan Eleni Lemonedes will archive your child’s collection of artwork and create a collaged print with smaller images of your child’s artwork. You send her and her team the art, which will be returned to you once the print is made.
