DIY Art Display Frame

Summer is almost over (and already over for some kiddos)!  Have you had a chance to clear out the previous school year's work?  No judging here...  I haven't!  Are you prepared for another year's inflow of arts and crafts from school?

Little man never seems to slow down his art production, so I had to come up with a way to have an in and out system.  Shhhh...  Yes I toss out his art work in the end, but not until I've taken a photo of the piece for a photobook of his masterpieces.  I only keep the ones for special occasions ๐Ÿ˜Š

Now that this art display frame is in place, we can actually display his work before I take a photo and then...  shhhh....

So without further ado, let me share with you this DIY project's step by step details in this video.  It's so simple that I attempted this DIY without the Mr.'s assistance!  I think this is my first DIY project for the blog!

I hope I've given you some inspirations on handling the flood of art work coming your way this new school year.  With this art display frame, we can decorate the wall with little man's art while having a systematic approach about his art storage.
