Cheap Easy DIY Children's Art Display

Pin It

Gearing up for the start of the new school year? Set up an area for your child to display their schoolwork for just $4. Yeah... You read that right. All you need to create a fun, interchangeable art display is a hammer, a yardstick, 4 nails, and $4. Here's how I did it:
 
Our local Dollar Tree had these plain clipboards. The second I saw them, I knew what I was going to do with them. Now, if you wanted to, you could paint them. Or use stickers or vinyl to label them for each child. For simplicity's sake, I opted to just leave them plain.
 
Using a yard stick, I laid the clipboards out at even intervals. I marked my nail locations in pencil on the yardstick.

After placing the yardstick up against the wall, I used a level to ensure it was straight. Using my pencil marks from the previous step, I put the 4 nails in the wall.

The end result is a cute, functional display that can be switched out whenever the mood strikes you.  Bear loves it because he can add things himself or take down pictures he no longer wants up there.
Like the green transportation book holder? See how we made it here.
