wood block art displays | oh my crafts! giveaway

4.18.2012  at 5:00 AM

My girls produce quite an array of art. By using a set of four 3" x 3" blocks from Oh My Crafts!, I was able to make two display pieces that elevate their art to much more than just another doodle. 

I let my inner artist get crafty with this first project! I painted each side of the block a different color combination. Here you can see the front, where I added the tag holder and a small shipping tag. I have another tag with Isabella's name. Don't have a bracket? Use some chalkboard paint and change the name as your artist-of-the-day changes. I know the girls will be working hard to see whose artwork will be displayed on our wood block easel.

I wrapped the dowel in some Lemondrop baker's twine from The Twinery and added a small clothespin to the top of the dowel to hold the masterpieces that fill our home. As you can see below, I pulled out my small collection of washi tape and adhered a few strips to the side. I then used a light swipe of pink paint over the washi tape to soften the look.

We also have a few 3D creative treasures to display. Use your favorite glue to attach four small wood knobs, paint the wood block in your favorite color {I used spray paint} and suddenly this simple crafting item becomes a charming piece of home decor.

Now, Isabella's art class pottery puppy is proudly being displayed next to Zach's award-winning Art Show weaving in our family room. I used a light coat of spray gloss to highlight the paint and give it a pleasing vibrant look.
