Diy wall decal ideas
Or, how about a digital frame with a changing display of your childrens artworks? I wouldnt own thought of this one myself, but a reader says she does and loves it.
2. Kids Art Poster
Have Itsy Artturn your favorite kids art pieces into a poster. We were every pleased with how the posters turned out and the kids loved seeing their artwork displayed this way.
Magnetic Picture Frame Display
Give your fridge art display a makeover with DiY magnetic picture framesas Alysha shared on How Does She? Totally trying this soon!
Use the ArtKive app to photograph your childrens artwork from your smartphone and tag it with names, dates, and descriptions. You can print a book of selected artworkswith practically just the shove of a button! Sounds like the busy moms solution to that book we every intend to create but dont get around to doing.
Clipboard Art Display
Group clipboards together as an art display area on the wall. It will make changing out the art super quick and simple as Jenn does at Clean and Scentsible.
Or make your own display clipboardsas Liz did at Love Grows Wild.
4. Cork Board Frames
Instead of removing the backs, you could simply replace the glass in a set of frames with cork from a roll of cork board as Lisa did from Grey Luster Girl. Now she has a bulletin board display wall for her kids art and can easily pin up new artworks anytime.
5. Matching Frames for a Cohesive Look
Use inexpensive frames to easily switch out the artwork and change what is displayed.
Anna from The Imagination Tree did this with her childrens art gallery. She used matching white IKEA frames in a variety of sizes for a cohesive glance. I LOVE that colorful cardboard Create sign she and her kids made!
6. Hanging Display Wire
Use an IKEA wire curtain rod system to display the art. The one pictured is by Danielle on The Style Files; with a description of the IKEA set up on Apartment Therapy.
Or simply clip the artwork to a wirestretched between a couple of hook-eye screws as Kelli from Random Thoughts of a Super Mom did. So easy!
Canvas Art Display
Transfer your childs artwork to canvas.
Kids-Only Art Display Area or Stir Artwork Throughout Home
Have a kids art-only display area OR mix their art in with the other artwork you own hanging around the house.
Wall decal & sticker frames
Or use removable wall decals if you desire something less permanent.
These colorful frame wall stickersare fun! As are thesefancy frame decals.
7. Stylish Floating Wall Shelves
Use ledges or floating wall shelves for a kids art display area. Its simple to change out the artwork as Kate of Centsational Girl did. You can simply prop up painted canvases, framed art pieces, and 3-D art. Attempt layering and moving them around as much as you love without putting unsightly holes in the walls.
Make a Kids Art Book
Melissa from The Artful Parent created a book with her kids artwork with PlumPrint and now its a prized possession in their house!
Display Kids Art on Hangers
Use pants hangers to display kids artwork. How simple is that?!
The Honest Company blog shares enjoyment ideas for letting the kids decorate and personalize them first.
1. Display and Store Kids Artworks
Use kids art frames thatcombine a professional-looking frame with simple storage. Each of these frames doubles as storage for additional pieces of your childrens artwork.
DIY Frame Wallpaper
Make someDiY frame wallpaper where you desire your childrens art display, and let your kids draw, paint, and collage their art directly onto the wallpaper.
Chalkboard Wall Art Gallery
Turn a chalkboard wall into a kids art galleryas shown on The Artful Kids blog.
Local Art Gallery
Do you belong to a kids frolic group, childrens art group, or preschool?
Considerhaving an art show at a local coffeeshop, bakery, or ice cream store for a period.
When you approach the owner/manager with your thought, make certain to mention that you can own a low-key reception for the young artists and their families. This translates to lots of people buying their muffins or ice cream cones! And the kids families will likely continue to visit throughout the month to see their art on display and share it with their friends and neighbors.
Painted wall frames
Paint enjoyment and colorful frames directly on the wallas Christie from Childhood did.
Display Art in Thrifted Frames
This is our own kids art display wall, made out of thrifted frames with the glass and backing removed. Were still loving it, and Ive shared a couple posts on Whats on the Kids Art Display Wall This Month showing how the artwork displayed has been changing.
Vertical Hanging Artwork Display
Or, do as the folks at The Artful Kids blog did next and create a space-saving vertical display with hanging wires.
Which thought for ways to display kids artwork is your favorite?

Ever see Willy Wonka. Children love to lick the walls. If you give them markers that smell love root beer they eat markers, if you give them wallpaper that has strawberries on it then they attempt to eat or at least lick that wallpaper, lastly if they see stripes of paper, purple as a designer grape, even the author described as “delicious” you will definitely be sneaking a few bites between meals. This afternoon I got to thinking and remodeled one of the activity closets in my home. After moving out the additional table and chairs I noticed it was missing color. I did white paint but as promised I stamped in multi color every the things excellent about safely.
I had one stamp that said received, due by, another with my signature (that was for fun) but of course the standard STOP, DEPT, and of course RETURN. It really came out extremely nice, Extremely SAFE, also extremely NON TOXIC. I was just concerned about the clothing bar across the top of the closet so I screwed that in and also reinforced it with some 2 x4s so the little ones can’t drop off if they start to get curious. Do you ponder that 5 inch padding for about the first 3 feet is overkill? Let me know your thoughts. Excellent luck to those trying my swift and clever thought and please be cartful with this tape thing.
This post is part of a series on DIY playroom design.
This first post outlines our playroom, rock wall, hanging rings and swing, sensory boards and also how we store and arrange our children’s toys. Be certain to click the links at the bottom of this post to see the remaining rooms in the playroom design series!
When S was younger (under 3) we lived in a tiny little two tale ish square foot home. It wouldn’t own been fairly so bad if we weren’t living in Seattle (loooong winter/rainy seasons) and weren’t at home every day — but we were! And so it really felt fairly cramped. When we were finally ready to purchase a new (and bigger!) home, I wanted to be capable to own some frolic areas that were dedicated playspaces for S and me (and soon-to-be baby X) to spend our days in.
The moment I saw our home, I knew it was the one for us! The downstairs had a bedroom, home gym, and family room. When I saw them, I envisioned converting the bedroom into a Reading Room, the home gym room into an Art Room, and the family room into our playroom.
Here’s what the playroom used to glance love before we moved in:
This was the straight-on view.
This was the view to the left.
It’s not bad, but not super kid-friendly. Luckily I had a committed work crew in my husband, mom, and dad. I was about 20 weeks pregnant with X and I was Sure to get the playroom of my dreams set up.
I really wanted the room to be more inviting. The dark walls just didn’t seem extremely cheerful, and since this was a basement, the natural light wasn’t as nice as upstairs. We decided to brighten the walls with an off-white paint with a light blue accent wall along the back of the playroom. I am also a HUGE fan of decals. They are a nice way to add little bursts of color to walls extremely easily (and they’re totally removable — bonus!). I ponder they are SO much easier than painting things by hand.
The wood floor was beautiful, but also not really kid frolic friendly. Sitting on a wood floor for an extended time hurts! I looked into getting some area rugs, but phew those are expensive. It was much more cost-effective for us to install carpet.
In thinking of the general layout of the room, we tried to group similar toys/activities. S has a cooking nook, a building area, and a more open movement/gross motor frolic area. My mom, who was instrumental in helping me lay everything out, warned me that the biggest error people make with a large room is laying everything against the walls.
We made an effort to break the room up into sections by using a sofa and one of S’s toy shelves and it really does make a difference!
Finally, a playroom is floor space, for certain, but there’s also wall space and ceiling space you can use!
In addition to decals, we also own sensory boards, Discovery Bottle display shelves, and a rockwall on our walls. We own a pirate ship and swinging rings hanging from our celings.
Make certain that you consider every the ways you could use your space!
As I go through and show the set up of the various areas, I’ll attempt to name/link to any pictured things that might be of interest. If I miss anything that you’re curious about, let me know and I’m happy to tell you what it is!
The first order of trade was new paint, new carpets, and removing the broken fireplace insert.
I had a custom magnet board built to cover the fireplace opening, but you can use a metal car drip pan mounted on a wall to make a magnet board for much less. We spray painted the metal black so that it made the magnets stand out more.
Custom Magnet Board
S loved the rings at the local gymnastics open frolic gym and these rings were only $22! To hang something from your ceiling is remarkably simple. Discover and drill into a joist in the ceiling to mount it (we used our weight to test the strength, which I would recommend doing to make certain you didn’t miss the joist somehow) and voila! S also has a swing in her bedroom because, again, it was just so simple and having a swing inside is so much fun.
For Christmas this year, the kids put this amazing HABA Pirate Ship on their wishlist for their grandparents.
They are super fortunate because their grandma got it for them! It is seriously the coolest thing ever. It is extremely pricey, granted, but it holds up to pounds — and easily accommodates children (we’ve even had four in at once!). It is a HABA toy, so as non-toxic as can be, with incredibly durable construction. It is easily one of the favorite things in our house.
Tek Nek Legend Spring Horse (apparently no longer available)
For toy storage, I went with white Ikea Expedit shelving units to brighten up the room.
On the other side of this is S’s little kitchen/cooking area. I found these storage bins at the Land of Nod — they were so beautiful with the rainbow colors and the light shining through, I thought they’d be a perfect way to add some more color. You can also catch a glimpse of our indoor ficus tree on the left. It’s so enjoyment to own a little tree inside. :)

The continuation of our toy storage is on the opposite side of the room against the back wall.
I really believe that presentation is everything for little kids. You could own a giant bin of really cool toys, but somehow it seems to appeal more to them if the toys are displayed. I own also found this to be the case with books, which I’ll talk about more in my post on our Reading Room. Anyway, toys that lent themselves to being stored in containers are in the clear colored containers (minatures, giant floor puzzle pieces, marble run pieces, etc) and we own some of our larger toys on display over here. I also own our «push toys» to the right.
We also own a little trampoline because those things are just plain awesome.
If you don’t own one — this is a fabulous way to own kids burn off energy in the winter. It even folds up compactly, so we were capable to own this one at our final tiny house.

This is S’s little cooking nook. Though she has a grocery cart full of cute pretend food, she still prefers to cook with colored buttons or colored pompoms the most (although sometimes she’ll add a piece of pretend produce to it).
Here she’s taking a taste of her renowned pompom soup.

For Christmas this year, one of S’s two presents from us was this indoor rock wall (you’ll see the second present in the Art Room post). We built it ourselves with lots of my Dad’s assist. It’s another project that is easier than you ponder. It is built out of a single sheet of plywood. We mounted the plywood on several lengths of lumber; the lengths of lumber were in turn drilled in several spots to studs in the wall.

I wanted S to own a Lego table, but didn’t love any of the premade tables I was finding online. My original plan was to make a Lego table with Ikea kids’ furniture — I’d planned to paint the furniture to match my color scheme — but the Ikea furniture is TINY. It felt love it would already be too little for S at the age of 3.
Also, once I’d factored in the cost of the primer, diverse colored paints I wanted for chairs, and a gloss jacket to protect the paint — it was actually beautiful costly (not to mention time-consuming). I scoured the internet and found these tables and chairs and fell in love. The chair colors they offer actually match almost perfectly what I had in mind.
They are also designed for older children, so X and S will be capable to use them for fairly some time. At 3, S’s legs still dangle a bit, but she doesn’t mind one bit. I had planned on gluing the baseplates to the tabletop, but S likes to carry her buildings below to the floor sometimes, or bake Lego «cookies» in the oven, so we’ve left them loose. And I hold this awesome brightly colored pail full of Legos correct at the base of the table for simple access.

In addition to the shelving we own, I love the pail system for storing our building supplies.

We love our playroom so extremely much! We are extremely fortunate that we own a large home and that we can afford to add every these awesome things to it. Hopefully I’ve given some ideas/inspiration to those of you that are creating playspaces for your children.
