We need: a collection of picture frames of different sizes and shapes, a selection of differently patterned sheets of paper – all red and white, scissors, pencil, red spray paint, drop cloth, tesa® adhesive nail for wallpaper & plaster 1kg and tesa® adhesive nail for wallpaper & plaster 0.5kg (dependent on frame weight), double-sided adhesive pads for transparent & glass
Colourful DIY Gallery Wall
A cute collection of bright frames for children’s art. A real art gallery for their work! This bold, bright and beautiful gallery wall is simple and inexpensive to create. Your little ones will be thrilled to have their very own art gallery in their room, just like real artists.
How it's done:
First, protect your working surface with a drop cloth. Then use the spray paint to carefully paint the frames red.
Trace around the backs of the frames on the patterned paper with your pencil to mark the shape and size to be cut out. These will form the backgrounds for the artwork.
Take your scissors and cut out a background from the patterned paper for each frame.
Place the patterned pieces of paper in the frames of your DIY gallery wall and replace the frame backs.
Following the instructions on the packs, mount the tesa® adhesive nail for wallpaper & plaster 1kg and tesa® adhesive nail for wallpaper & plaster 0.5kg on the wall. Which you’ll use for each frame depends on its weight. Hang the frames on the adhesive nails.
Now it’s time to add the masterpieces to the frames. Your children’s art work can be fixed in place using double-sided adhesive pads for transparent & glass – and changed as often as you like!
Enjoy your kids' art with this colourful and unique DIY gallery wall!
