Between crafts, school papers, and reminders our refrigerator gets overcrowded VERY easily. I love to see my kids’ art work and have it proudly displayed. When it falls of in layers each time we walk past the fridge or open the door though, you know there’s a problem. We have found a simple way to show off their art, and enjoy a clean and clutter-free fridge at the same time.

This month for our Deep Clean Bedroom Rotation, we went all out. We switched around the boys room and the girls room. It seems that when you do a full room overhaul like this, it is much easier to get around to the little decorating projects that have been put off for awhile.
What better way to personalize their new rooms than with their own art work?
This project is super easy to do.
Tools you need:
- Command Decorating Clips
- Craft Thread (or any thicker thread)
- Clothes Pins (you can always use craft paper and mod podge to customize the clothes pins)
- Measuring Tape
Simply measure out where you will hang the strips so they hang in a straight line. The clips are hung right by each child’s bed. I measured to make sure the line was centered with the bed and looked uniform around the room. I stuck the Command strips on, tied some string in between and gave each child 3 clips and told them they can hang up whatever special papers they want.
So far it has worked great! Any papers that they love, can be hung on their walls until they are ready to rotate them out. There are a few papers and art projects that they bring home that I will file away after they are done displaying them, but those are kept to a minimum.
We have been doing this for years in our hallway. We don’t know how many kids we will have, and I despise hanging picture frames.
This was the perfect solution to have individual pictures that I can easily switch out, and add to as our family grows. It keeps things much more simple than the elaborate gallery walls that would take me years to create! Plus, I’m pretty sure I would never update the pictures for fear of hanging something back up crooked.
How do you display your kids’ art work?
