With school back in session, your kids will be coming home with all sorts of art projects and graded papers. Show them how proud you are of them by displaying their good grades and exciting works of art by creating a Wall of Achievement on a blank wall in your home. This low cost project will make a big impact on your child’s self-esteem this school year.
Old picture frames in various sizes
Paint (Any Color)
Start by gathering your unused picture frames. If you don’t have any on hand, you can pick some up at a local resale shop, thrift store or garage sale. Look for a variety of sizes and shapes. (It was my experience that frames with texture look best when painted.)
Prepare the frames to be painted by removing the glass and backing, and by wiping the frames clear of any dust. Then, paint the frames with the paint color you chose. Depending on the type of paint you use, painting the frames may take multiple coats. Be sure to let the paint dry completely between applications.
Once your frames are completely dry, hang them together on your wall. (You may want to lay the frames out on a table or on the floor so you can rearrange them until you like the order of placement.)
