4. Clothespins and Twine

Not only is this craft unbelievably simple, but it also looks adorable with your children’s masterpieces attached! Try one strand above your furniture, or a few along an empty wall.

DIY Ribbon-Hung Prints

Looking for a unique way to showcase your art? This easy DIY is a great way to spice up your walls without breaking the bank!

 

 

First, round up your materials. All you need are a few household items, but you can take your project to the next level by using spray paint for a little hint of extra color! As you can see from the image, you’ll want binder clips, ribbon, a few of your favorite art prints, and push pins to attach it all.

 

 

Add spray paint to your binder clips for added color. Spread some scrap paper outside, hold the spray can 6-12 inches away, and spray until no silver shows through. Once dry, flip the clips to the other side and repeat!

 

 

After the binder clips have dried, attach a strip of ribbon to each of the clip backs. We used Future Glue, but you can use any brand of super or gorilla glue! Remember to give yourself some wiggle room and add extra ribbon lengthwise so you can make adjustments later.

Step 4

 

 

Time to cover up the glue stains! Just tie a few bows from your leftover ribbon and attach them to the fronts of the binder clips.

Step 5

 

 

Open, clip, and done! To attach your creation to the wall, adjust the ribbon length as needed, cut and place your ribbon where the wall meets the ceiling, and add a few small tacks to hold your project in place. Ta-da! A perfectly fabulous way to showcase your art!

We used a single roll of thick ribbon for the prints, but you can also intertwine lots of ribbons together! If you have an empty wall column, hang all your prints on a single piece of ribbon or hang the bow-coated clips on a few nails instead. There are so many ways you can make this idea your own, and we hope you’re inspired to do so!

The art prints used in this post are “You are our Greatest Adventure” by Zoomboone Creations, “Moonlight” by Kakel, and “Let Your Dreams Set Sail” by Tumbling After. In addition to these prints, you can find thousands of other amazing designs here!
