Is the fridge door bursting with art and drawings? What you need is a kids artwork display frame: a polished way to display, store, and rotate their art.
Hanging your kid's artwork up on the wall is always a cute idea for home decor. It adds a unique and personal touch to your walls. But some frames are nearly impossible to open up in the back. It can be a hassle to get photos and prints in and out, especially if you want to rotate the artwork you're displaying.
Luckily, there's a solution! A kids art display frame is a unique solution designed to make life easier for you.
The Li'l Davinci brand creates frames to display children's artwork. They are designed to make adding new artwork easy, and store the other pieces.
The Li'l Davinci frames are front-opening frames that open and close easily with a latch. This means that you can add new artwork to your frame even while it's still on the wall!
There's a spring-loaded interior compartment, which means that when you want to replace your artwork with something new, you don't have to remove the old piece. You can simply open the frame door and add your child's newest creation. It's extremely convenient.
Your frame can store up to 50 pieces of art (depending on the thickness of the paper) at a time. So when you want to display something new, you don't even have to take out the old piece - you can just add the new piece in front of the old.
This makes it a pretty great way to store some of your extra artwork. At that point, you'll have to go through the artwork in the frame, get rid of some of the older pieces (make sure to digitize them first for memory's sake!), and keep any favorites. But it's great temporary storage.
These frames to display children's artwork come in four sizes: 8.5x11, 9x12, 12x18, and 18x24.
The frame is wooden and comes in black, white, or cherry finishes.
The white mat to make your art look even better! They can be hung both vertically or horizontally, or you can switch your frame around depending on what artwork you're currently displaying.
When you order a frame, you'll also receive everything you need to hang your frame. Your frame comes with a hanging template, any necessary hardware, and, if you're ordering the 8.5x11 or 9x12 sizes, you'll also get a table stand. The smaller frames come with a glass window, and the larger frames have a high-quality plastic window.
The smallest size is $35 and the largest is $70, which is fair for the type of product you're getting. This isn't just a normal frame, and you'll get tons of use out of it. After all, it can fit 50 pieces of artwork in it at once!
The Articulate Gallery frames are really interesting!
They aren't front-loading, but instead the Articulate Gallery brand has a range of slot-sided picture frames.
So the frames have an opening on the side (or the top, depending on how you decide to hang it since it works both vertically and horizontally). The open side slots in the frames make it super easy to rotate art. Just slide out the old piece and slide in the new!
These frames to display children's artwork are especially great for 3D pieces. Because there's not a glass front, you don't have to worry about fun art projects getting squished or ruined.
If your child loves adding elements like pipe cleaners, pom-poms, or textured paper to their art, these frames are a great option. Having the open front allows the 3D elements to really pop off the page and celebrate your child's creativity.
Their frames are made of wood and are all white, so they'll fit well on any gallery wall. They come in single frames or you can get a frame that has slots for 2, 3, or 4 art pieces at once. So if you have more than one child, you can have a slot for each one, so you're showcasing art from all of your children at once!
The single frame is 9x12. The double frame has dimensions of about 12x14, but it holds two 9x12 size art pieces. The triple holds three 9x12 size pieces and its overall dimensions are 30x14. The four-piece frame is 22x22 and displays four 9x12 prints, two oriented in portrait and two in landscape.
Articulate Gallery frames are fairly reasonable in price. They are a little on the higher end, but for how unique they are, the cost isn't too bad. The single frame is $28, the double frame is $42, the triple frame is $58, and the macro gallery (which showcases four pieces) is $77.
If you're looking for a cheaper version of the Li'l Davinci frames, you can check out the frames from the Lakeside Collection.
These frames have a front-opening door to make it easy to add new artwork. The storage in the frame is 3/4ths of an inch, which means it should hold about 50 pieces of art (depending on how thick the paper is).
The frame has an 8.5x11 frame opening (so it will hold most standard pages) with a plexiglass front. The overall dimensions are 11x13.5.
This frame, however, does not have the spring-loaded compartment like the Li'l Davinci frames. One reviewer said that art can slouch over in the frame because of this (if the frame isn't that full). That might not be a huge deal to most people, but it's something to keep in mind!
The Lakeside Collection frame only comes in black with a white mat and it only comes in one size. It comes with enough hardware to add hangers in multiple spots so you can easily change your frame from portrait to landscape, depending on what art you are displaying.
This kids artwork display frame costs under $20. It doesn't have the spring-loading compartment, but if you need a standard frame on a budget it's great!
If you want to hang your child's artwork somewhere other than the fridge, a frame that you can easily switch art in and out of is a great alternative. All three of these frames for displaying kid art have different advantages to fit your situation.
There are lots of variations on the Li'l Davinci frames, but I think the spring-loaded compartment is a great way to keep your child's artwork in place no matter how full or empty your frame is. But the Lakeside Collection frame is a great alternative if you're looking to save some money.
If your child likes making 3D art, the Articulate Gallery frames are perfect. I love that there's no glass front flattening any dimensional projects you want to display.
Framing your child's artwork is a great way to encourage their creativity while adding an adorable personal touch to your gallery wall or decor.
