Recycled Art

Happy May!


I have a habit of keeping a lot of my children’s painting, colorings & doodles. I actually have more pieces of colorful paper than I care to admit. And as part of another goal to bring more color to our stark walls by adding our personal art I came up with this idea of mixing the kid’s art with my crafting, a bit of artsy recycling. It was fairly simply and didn’t require many tools.

All you need are:

Scrap piece of wood

Paint or stain



Some sort of paper art

Frame hanger

Here’s what you do:

Paint or stain your wood – set aside to dry then attach frame hanger to back

Cut your art up & arrange it in a shape of your choice – glue it to the board

Carefully hammer the thumbtacks along the border of your art

And voila… custom recycled art.

Now hang it and enjoy!
