A Fun Way to Transform Kids’ Art

My two year old has been on a painting spree lately, and has actually produced some pretty good looking pieces.  While I tend to throw away the majority of her scribbles over time (shhh, don't tell!), I have been wanting to make an art wall in her room to showcase her best work.  This custom bunting was the perfect way to transform her paintings:

The lighting in that part of her room isn't great so it was hard to get a good picture, but it really is pretty!  Making the bunting was super simple.  I first cut out a triangle template from a piece of card stock:

Then I traced around it on all her artwork, trying to include the most colorful parts of her painting:

When I was cutting these out, my daughter said "Ooh, pizza slices!"… ah, to see the world through a 2 year old's eyes!! Quite a colorful array when put together:

Then all it took was some of my trusty twine (buy yourself a roll…it comes in handy for so many things), and a hole puncher to make a hole at the two top corners of each triangle and then string the twine through:

I then tied the twine around a nail at each end of the wall and voila!
