My 3.5 year old daughter is REALLY into painting right now. And every piece that she paints is treated like a genuine masterpiece by her dad and I. We like to hang as many of her paintings as we can so we can all admire them until her next round of work comes in, but we always hang them in our playroom. I thought that she might like to have some of her artwork hung in her room where she can be reminded of how proud we are of her work, so I decided to make a quick little art display board just for her room.
The first thing I did was measure how much of the ribbon I needed to span across the canvas horizontally and then I cut three pieces.
Next, I hot-glued one end of a piece of ribbon on the back of the canvas, then wrapped it around the front and glued the other end on the back of the canvas, but a few inches lower so that the ribbon was sitting at a steep angle. I did the same thing, but in the opposite direction, with the second piece of ribbon and then glued the third piece of ribbon straight across.
It's such an easy and fun little project and something you can easily do during nap time (unless you're napping, too, and if you are, I am jealous!).
