2. Invite your little Rembrandts to join you in selecting the perfect space for their gallery wall. If you’re going to feature their artwork in a kitchen or love Danish Modern design, consider using natural wood hangers to capture that minimalist look. If you want to add a punch of color to the family or playroom, ready your paints!

3. To protect the metal portions of the hanger, cover it with painter’s tape before applying any paint. However, skip this step if you prefer the natural finish.

4. Personalize your hangers using stencils or stickers to add your name child’s name or an important date.

5. Paint your hangers in a well-ventilated area and let dry.

6. Attach your child’s artwork and hang gallery style. You can use the skirt hangers with matting from old picture frames to showcase their masterpieces in a more finished display. Earthquake putty allows you to attach the artwork to the matting without damaging the paper and is extremely convenient for changing out the artwork on a regular basis. Your kiddos can curate their own show!
