Home Art Gallery 2-3I love hanging up the kids’ artwork, but I want it to be easy and fast. I let my husband handle this project while I took the kids to the park, even though I make and fix plenty of things myself in our house. My husband chose to do it himself instead of buying a kit. He took advantage of the long kneewall in the hallway of our converted attic. You can also find ready-made kits in various lengths and colors.

If you don’t want a do-it-yourself project, check the ready-made options below.
