ribbon hanger

Pick an inconspicuous door for posting classwork, invitations, snapshots or art.  Attach a ribbon to the inside of the door & drape it over the outside.  Use any sort of clip or clothes pin for hanging.

  • a cinch to trade out pieces of art
  • use different ribbons or clips for holidays
  • add up to three ribbons for Christmas card display
  • group similar pieces (ie. all b/w photos) for an artsy look

artist angles

The bulldog clip post in wall works from May 16th  (http://edit423.com/2011/05/16/bulldog-clip-art-display/) wins the clicks count.  So, check out the new picture angles below + ideas for where to place art displays in your home.  The fridge is begging for mercy.  Before (yaaaawn…):

After: 

The wall space is in a landing area – a few steps down, square landing, then turn right for the remaining flight.  The pictures above are taken from the main floor, a person faces the display as they’re coming up the stairs from the basement.  The area is approximately 5 1/2 ‘ x 9 1/2’ – what an excellent use of dead vertical space!  (if I do say so myself…)

Other art display location ideas:

  • behind doors in kids’ rooms
  • garage walls
  • laundry room walls
  • transition areas, similar to example above
  • any blank wall – but don’t go crazy…keep some walls empty for the zen effect
