A couple of years ago I was asked to review a personalised art display board from Noah's Art. Noah's Art is an online Australian store specializing in custom made canvas children's art display boards. You choose the design and colour scheme; Nichola makes every board to suit you and your preferences. As it was to be for Eli, I chose a dinosaur theme. It has certainly been very useful (and it is so cute!) in helping to declutter the fridge and reduce the amount of art work given to friends and relatives out of sheer necessity (my kids seem to have a you've-put-something-in-the-recycling-bin-while-I-wasn't-looking radar!)!
After a few coats of white paint I cut some heavy duty wrapping paper to size and glued it inside the frame. Note: thinner paper will bubble from the moisture in the glue.
The finished board hanging in Lily's room; this photo was taken just after it was hung on the wall (I used a wire hanging kit to attach some wire - unfortunately the original picture didn't have one on it when I bought it from the op shop. Probably one of the reasons why it was only $5!). It doesn't look like this right now though - every one of those pegs has a responsibility to hold up a treasured piece of art work (from 3D princess crowns to animal masks and drawings of Star Wars characters!).
This is one very easy and very functional DIY craft. I love that it is functional for all ages; art work for younger children and then as a bulletin board for older children/teens. Let me know if you make one of your own!
