DIY Wall Art Display

Do you remember when I brought home the best vintage pieces as a souvenir from Ashville, North Carolina?!  One of the pieces I grabbed at the last minute was this piece of chippy wood.  I knew it would be a perfect fit for Little B’s room one day!  Check out this sweet little DIY Wall Art Display —

I covered some clothespins I had at the house with a darker stain.  Then I used my hot glue gun to attach them to the board.  Each of the clothespin openings face the outside of the board so that papers can be displayed on top and bottom.

I hammered two Sawtooth Hangers into the back of the board and used two little nails to hang her display.

And within minutes she had her cute little display covered with some of her best work!  I love my little artist!!!

  12. luv it – I never thought about clothes pins! I have an old wooden ironing board that i’m using as our art display but have been holding off finishing it. the metal clips are just so expensive and I’m a cheapo, lol, this time it really paid off! the clothes pins will fit even more perfect with the ironing board!

    This is a great and easy idea. Love things with clothespins, I even use them on my handmade cards {the tiny ones of course lol}. This is a cute idea to make when my Emma is a bit older. Pining!

    Hope you have a great day
