DIY - Art Display "Clothesline"

If you are like me, you probably have a mass of kiddy crafts lying around. Some are covering the refrigirator door; do you even remember what the color of that door was at one time? While others are stacked up on the floor, in a box, on top of the desk, waiting for their turn on that magnetic door.

If you do, and are looking for a better way to display them, here is what I put together with a few everyday items. Yes, you can buy these already made; but again, if you are like me and do not want to spend more than you have to, then do it yourself.

Here is what you need:

  1. Rope or twine, you decide on the leght depending on the wall space
  2. Clothes pins; I got the classic ones from the Dollar Store, and the "fancier" you can find cute ones at Michael's 
  3. Nails, to secure the rope to the wall 

And, voila, you have yourself a fun and inexpensive art display that does not take up any desktop or fridge door space. Of course, our fridge door still has its share of art hung on it, but this way we get to enjoy the artwork in more than one room.
