I got a few emails asking how and what I used to make this. It was SO EASY! I am not crafty or creative or handy at all and the whole thing only took me 20 minutes and was only about $20 to do the whole thing.
To do this project, you'll need:
vinyl lettering *
4 eye hooks
1 large roll of picture hanging wire
*A word about the vinyl lettering. When I first started thinking about doing this project, I wanted to use the Pablo Picasso quote "Every child is an artist". However, I didn't have the foresight to order it ahead of time. There are tons of Etsy shops that have that quote available. The quote that I used is one that I found at Hobby Lobby. I think it works just as well. It was $27.99- but I have the Hobby Lobby app on my phone and there is always a show and save 40% off coupon on there that you can use at checkout, making it less than $20.
First I screwed one eyebolt into the wall. If you are really handy, you could probably use an anchor, but since the wire isn't heavy, I didn't worry about using and anchor and just screwed the eyebolt right into the wall. Then I used a laser level to shoot a level line across the wall and screwed another eye bolt about 6 feet down the wall. You could make this longer or shorter depending on your wall.
Next, I used a length of picture wire and stretched it the length of the eyebolt, added a few inches to each side and cut it. To attach it to the eyebolts, you can simply thread it through and wrap it around a few times.
Now, you have your first line. You could absolutely stop here, but I wanted to add a second line under the first simply to have more display space. I did the same thing with the second line. It is approximately 20 inches below the first line.
Once both lines are up, put the vinyl letting on the wall. I wanted to put this on last so that I could make sure and center it just perfectly above the lines.
Next attach your children's masterpieces with decorative clothespins or clips and voila! DIY project complete!
