Homeschool Crafts – Decorative Art Displays
By BCP AdminDecember 19th 2016
As parents, we love to display the beautiful artwork that our children create. When a child attends school outside of the home, they often bring home various assignments and creative projects that parents proudly display on the refrigerator, in their offices, and various other places.
If you are a parent that homeschools your child, this is one of the many rewards that are still enjoyed. Seeing that the homeschool home is often organized in such a way to make the education process easier, there is often limited space on where we can display that fancy artwork that our children complete. However, there is a method that you can use to ensure that you can proudly display many projects at once.
Furthermore, you and your children can create this. It is called a decorative art display.
The decorative art display is rather simple to create. It is important to allow the child to assist you in creating this project. Not only will this allow you and your child to spend quality time together, it is a great way to squeeze in an art lesson. You will need to gather a few supplies.
The basic supplies are:
*A large string, such as multicolored yarn
The other supply that you will need depends on the method in which you plan on decorating the clothespin. Other supplies may include any or all of the following:
*Various arts and crafts shapes and supplies
The following steps outline the method in which you will use in order to complete the decorative art display:
1) The first thing that you will want to do is to hang the multicolored yarn on one wall, ensuring that it is lying flat against the wall. You should start at one corner of the wall, and run it to the next corner of the same wall.
2) The second thing that you will want to do is to set up a table with an assortment of art supplies on it. This is where you and your child will decorate the clothespin that will go on your decorative art display. You may choose to paint the clothespins, color them with crayons, or use markers. You may wish to decorate them with glitter, or even stickers. Many homeschool parents actually purchase foam letters and shapes and glue them to the clothespins after they have decorated them. This step is pretty flexible. You may even want to decorate themes with your clothespins for different holidays, lessons, and more.
3) Once you are done decorating your clothespins, you may now hang them on the multicolored yarn that you hung up.
4) Place various artwork that your child has done in each clothespin.
You now have a decorative art display that does not take up much room, yet proudly displays all the creative projects that your child has completed.
