As promised, here is a look at some ways we display our pastels around the house. In our old house we had one gallery in our dining room. At the new house I’ve had a grand time decorating and finding places for the kids’ work to be displayed. How about a look?
|This is my Creative Memories magnetic frame. I wanted it up on the wall, but my scrapbooking things were still packed. So, I made a collage with artwork and some watercolored paper behind it.|
|This one really makes me smile every time I’m at the kitchen sink! It happens to be just above our instant hot water faucet for tea and coffee. Another second hand frame, it adds such great dimension to the art that our children create.|
The best part about decorating with the kids’ artwork is that we get to decorate authentically and inexpensively. The children love that their work is there for others to see. It makes me smile to see the fruit of our work together throughout the house. It also makes our art studies and projects more meaningful.
Now that I’ve just posted about our fall artwork, it’s time to get going on our Christmas projects so we can have a seasonal look about the house. I’ve received frequent compliments on the pieces of framed art we have scattered around the house. I encourage you to look for ways you can decorate using your children’s art.
How do you display your kids’ artwork in your homeschool?
