Kids Week: Make a Colorful Kids Art Gallery WallMay 25, 2017 | FILED UNDER: Uncategorized
It’s hard to believe but by this time next week, both of my daughters will be out of school for the summer. That means it’s the time of year for them to bring home ALL the art projects they made during the school year! It can be a struggle to figure out what to do with it all, but I’ve got a fun idea that will keep some of their creations out of the closet and on proud display.
I’ve partnered with Mixbook to turn some of Stella and Hazel’s art into large-scale glossy posters. Read on to see how I added a pom-pom trim frame for a colorful gallery art wall for their toy room, and don’t miss all the other kid-approved projects for Kids Week on the blog!
Most of my kids artwork comes in the 8″x11″ variety, but its nice to have some larger versions to really show them off! I was able to scan their artwork and upload it to Mixbook to turn it into 16″x20″ posters. Mixbook offers poster sizes up to 24″x36″ if you really want to make a statement with your child’s art!

3. Now to add a little pom-pom bling! Make a simple frame with pom-pom trim in your favorite colors. Just cut a length of trim to fit each side of the poster, then adhere it with a bead of hot glue along the edge, making sure to keep the trim in a straight line as you go.
So before take a look through those backpacks coming home over the next couple weeks and save some of your favorite projects for your own gallery wall!
