Children's Art Display

What did you make?
How did it turn out?
Great! I have a huge, boring, white wall in a galley kitchen that I have never known what to do with. We are in a relatively short-term rental situation, so I didn't want to do anything expensive or permanent. Now that I have a little, budding, one-year old artist, this was the perfect way to add a splash of color to our space.
Did you follow directions or make changes?
I was inspired by two different pins. I used the "Masterpieces" quote from one and the picture wire closeline idea from another. I followed the directions for the wire except that I used pushpins to hold it up rather than picture hanging screws in order to leave a smaller hole. I ordered the vinyl "Masterpieces" from Etsy. I am quite proud that I took the time to measure everything precisely so that the line and words are all centered and level; usually I am too impatient and have been known to just eyeball it. I still need to find some cute matching mini clothespins for hanging - right now it is a hodgepodge or paperclips and binderclips that I found around the house. We might handmake some cute ones.
Would you make it again?
Yep! I anticipate it being a staple accessory to all of our future homes. I even ordered two vinyl word art pieces so that I am prepared for the next house! :)
Any tips or advice?
Not really, it is an incredibly easy project. So fun too!
