DIY Child’s Art Display Board


Disclaimer – This post is in partnership with Craft Cuts.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

If you have little kids in your house you know they LOVE to grab some paints, markers, crayons, and mark just about anything and everything. Coloring is such a great activity for kids since it allows them to tap into their creative side and explore bright colors, shapes and designs.

With more coloring comes more mini works-of-art. Most parents end up either tossing some away (since kids are capable of producing 5-10 pieces of artwork a day!), or they end up on a fridge most likely cricked and covered in sauce or some other item being stored in the fridge.

So, instead of just tossing their artwork up on the fridge, why not display it in style?! This DIY child’s art display board is the perfect solution to your little ones ever growing (and changing) art collection! This display board is 100% customizable. You get to pick the font and the name for your display board. Check out the full tutorial below to see how easy it is to create your very own DIY child’s art display board using materials from CraftCuts!

Supplies:

  • MDF Square (13×13, 1/4 inch thick)
  • Connected Wooden Letters (font: DIN, baseline connection, unpainted, 1 inch high, 1/4 inch thick, approximate length 12.1 inches)
    • be sure to elect “Baseline” connection type. This is very important as it’s what makes it so easy to add the words to the square.
  • White Spray Paint (or whatever color you prefer)
  • Small White Clothespin (you could also get a raw wooden clothespin and paint it your preferred color)
  • Beacon Multi-Grip Adhesive
  • Twine
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

Step 1: Add a coat of white spray paint to the words and square.

Step 2: Once it’s dry, add a second coat of paint and let it dry.

Step 3: Flip your square and words over and place your words at the top. They’ll be backwards and flipped. Then, center your words.

Step 4: Once you find the center, use your pencil to mark the beginning and end of each set of words.

Step 5: Add glue to the bottom of the first set of words.

Step 6: Glue it to the top of your still turned over wooden square where you’ve made your first set of marks.

Step 7: Then, glue the other word on top of the wooden square where you’ve made your second set of marks.

Step 8: Cut a piece of twine about 2.5 inches long.

Step 9: Add a dab of hot glue on the back of your wooden square towards the top and place the ends of the twine in the glue.

Step 10: Then add another dab of glue on top of the twine.

Step 11: Add glue to just the bottom of your clothespin.

Step 12: Then, add it towards the top center of your wooden square.

Once your DIY child’s art display board is finished, you can hang it on the wall by itself, or incorporate it in to a gallery wall. You child will love seeing their very own art proudly displayed!

      Thanks! I’m really excited to see how my daughter’s art changes over the years. It will be nice to have a place to display all of it. :)
