Cork Gallery Wall

A roll of cork is lightweight and easy to cut and install. Go big and cover an entire wall for an intentional, tidy look. For extra punch and color, spray-paint empty frames and mount with picture-hanging strips to showcase those "special" pieces.

Easy Swaps

Sleek, easy-to-install curtain wire with hooks make it easy for kids to swap out pieces of all shapes and sizes.

Scan + Print

Trade the clutter for something truly chic. Shrink all of your favorite pieces into one you'll be proud to display. Take photos of your favorites, then use design software to create a streamlined collage. Print it out and frame it! Now you can toss the original pieces with ZERO guilt.

Boho Display

Let kids wrap a long stick with colorful string and ribbon, then add paint and beads to really dress it up. Let a few of the ribbons hang down a few feet so you can suspend artwork. Tape each masterpiece onto the ribbon from behind to finish off this hip display.

Clipped Art

This is another simple way to keep a rotating gallery wall updated. Clip art into wooden pants hangers, then hang from hooks on the wall.

Hidden Treasures

"Wallpaper" the inside of dark cabinets with bright artwork. You'll get a smile in the most unexpected places while keeping your grown-up spaces, well, grown-up.

Upcycled Paint-Stick Frames

This DIY project could not be simpler. Magnet stickers on paint stir sticks hold art in place and give it an instant cool factor. Super-glue screw eyes to the inside top of the sticks and hang with string.

Mobile Masterpiece

Even "mess-ups" can be beautiful with a little creativity. Let your kids transform less-than-perfect pieces into something truly unique by folding them into origami-inspired shapes and hanging them from string.
