I know I’m obsessed with garlands at the moment, what with my felt heart one and the feather one I recently posted but you know what? Not bothered. Sorry, I’m loving them too much right now and not only is this children’s painted garland looking mega cute round mine at the moment but it’s also helped to fix some parenting problems. Yep, total win. So here’s what we did…
My son did some painting. Looks nice huh? Once it had dried I cut it into strips so that all the letters would be the same size. Cut the letters out and lay them out on a piece of bakers twine. Don’t forget you will need to turn this round the other way so do it backwards (I totally messed this bit up first time, sigh…)
Use washi tape to stick the letters in place, apart from the fact that this helps justify my large scale expenditures on washi tape, it also means if you put the letters in the wrong place you can easily move them.
Ta da! All done and up in The Toddlers room. What was great about this was not only was it made using his own paintings, but he’s recently been a bit funny about his playgroup saying he doesn’t like it. He loves it, but needs a little reminder of this sometimes! Under the sign I’ve taped a load of art that he’s done at his playgroup as well as a few bits from home, a nice reminder of his favourite stuff that he’s done there and also as I’ve popped it up there with washi tape I can move it around later or swap some bits over.
If you’ve got any ideas on how to display kids art or (even better!) how to remind your kids that they actually like playgroup or school do let me know below!
