There are so many inspiring ways on Instagram and Pinterest to display your kid’s artwork. One of my favorites is hanging an eclectic array of empty picture frames. But even if you hit up every garage sale and goodwill store it can still take time to find frames in the right size and style. I don’t know about you, but I’m just not that patient. You can always just buy frames from hobby lobby or target, but picture frames are expensive!

So if you are on budget, and not that patient, get a roll of Washi tape and some clothes pins and give yourself about 2 naps times to get it done.

What you need

  • Roll of Washi Tape or Masking Tape. This is such a fun way to personalize your project.
  • Clothes pins.
  • Spray paint (Optional). I used this to spray paint the clothes pins black.
  • 3M velcro strips small. These velcro strips are perfect for this job. I love that you can take the clothes pins off the wall when hanging up a new picture. For this project I used the small velcro strips. I cut each in half long ways, which made it the perfect width for the clothes pins.
  • Laser Level. This is one of my favorite tools! I learned a long time ago that I can not draw a straight line.

I had an idea of how I wanted the gallery to be arranged. I found an assortment of rectangles that I could trace. When I was happy with the layout, I got out the level and started taping. The best part about this project is how easy it is to customize and how easy it is change.

The gallery is in the playroom, so I added the Pac Man as a fun little detail. I love how it turned out!
