    These are wonderful ideas and examples of how to proudly display child(ren)’s artwork. My 5 year old LOVES art and we have done the string/rope/wire thing for a couple years already, have framed some, and have taken a photo of a pieces and turned it into a magnet. May I use your post (with full credit) in my blog?

    I really like some of these ideas, but it makes me sad that about half of the artwork shown was obviously adult work that didn’t look like kids’ work at all. The actual kids’ work that I saw I really appreciate though. I just think the pictures should be redone–or posters should show what they’ve done with it– to look more realistic and not so “artistic.”

    I really like the lattice and mismatched frames ideas.

    What an inspiring post. We have a wall of our kids art. It’s all there but without frames. I’d absolutely LOVE to get one large art eater frame done for each of the girls artwork. Too many works of art to choose from. Like you, I find it hard to throw them away.
