ARTWORK ORGANIZING PART 2

Children are wired to be creative.  They invent games, explore, imagine, and as an effect they love to color and paint – inside and outside the line – and even on your living room walls!

Here’s my daughter’s art attack on our living room wall when she was two years old!

Thankfully my neighbor introduced me to Magic Eraser and that episode never happened again, whew!

 

But throughout the years, I’ve developed ways on how to organize her artwork!

 

First I have a file case that I use to store her art.  I label the tabs according to her age in months since I’ve been collecting this ever since she was able to hold a pen.

You can also use some twine and paper clips to hang her best artwork on the wall.  Just follow a one-in-one-out policy.  For every artwork you stick up, you take one down.

Never stop your kids from drawing, coloring or painting.  Encourage them to be as imaginative as they can possibly be!

Shoe Box Upcycle

Don’t throw your old shoe boxes away! You can upcycle them for other uses, other than storing your old socks!

If you have a wall just crying out for decorations, then you can use the box tops to create wall art!

You can also maximize the box bottoms to create tiny shelves.  You can either paint the boxes just like these, or another idea is to line the inside with pretty prints using a gift wrapper and some glue.

You can also cover the box top with a pretty fabric which you can use as a jewellery organizer.

Happy organizing!

OCfied Organizer for Earrings

In one of my OCfied videos, I showed a silkscreen earrings organizer.  It’s a project that you can also do!  So here’s a step by step guide on how to make your own Silkscreen Earring Organizer.

Materials:

Picture Frame

Silk Screen

Glue Gun or Super Glue

Steps:

1. Remove the backing in a picture frame you like.

2. Take a silkscreen the same size as the picture frame border.

3. Attach the picture frame border on the silkscreen’s frame by using a glue gun. If you want it to be more permanent, use superglue.

Option: Instead of a picture frame border, you can also cover the silkscreen’s frame with cute washi tape!

Have fun with this project! If you want to see the video with this Silkscreen Earring Organizer, click on the link below!
