Thank you SnapeZo Frames for sponsoring this post! All opinions are 100% my own.
Do you have piles and piles of your children’s artwork everywhere? Or maybe you’re a little more on top of things and it’s topped in a filing cabinet somewhere…Either way, the artwork situation is completely out of control in my house. It’s no surprise to me that I have some artists in the family. I could draw ALL DAY EVERY DAY when I was a girl (and ahem…not much has changed).
An Easy Way to Display Kid’s Artwork
I want to encourage creativity in my house, and some art just NEEDS to be saved and on display. Plus, my poor refrigerator just isn’t going to cut it. These Modern wall art prints are the perfect art project for kids and I also I have a better solution to Display Kid’s Artwork…introducing my new FAVORITE product, SnapeZo Frames!
Take a look at the video below to see how it works:
SnapeZo Frames Make it Easy to Switch Out Artwork
Fun right? Basically, it makes these handy picture frames easy to switch out kid’s artwork…you could literally switch it out every day if you wanted to. You can take pictures of the artwork while it’s on display so you have a record of your child’s masterpiece, then you won’t feel as bad when they catch you dangling their artwork over the trash can (I swear I’m not heartless…I just don’t like clutter). Another thing I love about SnapeZo Frames is that they can fit these flat canvases and they’re super sturdy so they hold in place really well.
Modern Art Kid Project Materials
Also, aren’t these modern art prints SO cute? Here’s what you need to make them (or you could totally scroll down to the bottom of this post and download the free printables). I used my Cricut to make the stencils, and if you have another cutting machine, no worries, I’ve provided the SVG Files so you can use your own. Another option is to buy stencils at a craft store. Seriously so many possibilities for this art project.
- SnapeZo Picture Frame (I used the black 16X20 for these pictures)
- Flat canvases (I used 12X16)
- Frame Mat (optional)
- Cricut or another cutting machine
- Cricut Project (or download the SVG Files)
- Acrylic Paints
- Fine Glitter (optional – but it sure looks pretty on the arrow painting)
- Paint Brushes
- Small Level
- Drill (the frames conveniently come with screws)
Easy Modern Art Print Tutorial
- First, use your Cricut to cut out the modern artwork stencils (need a little more direction? Check out some Cricut Tutorials).
- Weed out the geometric shapes, then place the vinyl stencil on the canvas. Make sure it’s on straight on the canvas and press down on it with a scraper so the paint doesn’t bleed through the stencil.
- It’s now ready for painting! I set out the paint for them and added the glitter to the gold paint. I gave some direction, but they pretty much did their own thing.
- Let the paint dry, then peel off the stencils.
- Tape the artwork to the back of the mats.
- Open the sides and top of the frame and take out the cover. Leave the frame open to place it on the wall.
- Decide where you want the picture frames to go, then hold the level over the frame to make sure it’s straight.
- Mark the drill holes in the top and bottom holes.
- Hold the SnapeZo frame on the wall and make sure the drill holes are aligned. Use the provided screws and drill the frame in place on the top, then move to the bottom, then sides (if necessary). NOTE: If you are not drilling directly into the studs, first, drill holes in the wall little smaller than the size of the small plastic pieces that came in the bag with the screws. Hammer those plastic pieces in the holes, THEN drill the frame to the wall with the screws in the center of those plastic pieces. This will make things more sturdy.
- Now you can place your artwork in the center of the frame, then fold the top, bottom, and sides of the frame inward and switch kid’s artwork as needed!
Even my four-year-old created a pretty awesome art print. And it doesn’t need to stop there…you can use SnapeZo frames for family pictures, any of my free printables, including this geode artwork, or hand-lettered print. I’m also using a frame inside my pantry door for my Meal Plan printable (super handy to switch out every week). You could easily use it with my other schedules, too.
SnapeZo has an 8.5X11″ frame so you don’t even have to trim the planners. HOW COOL IS THAT??
Use SnapeZo Frames for Easy Family Photo Switches
Another conundrum Snapezo frames have fixed for me is the fact that I never switch out my family photos. I had my updated family pictures for a full year before I changed them…For some reason, taking down the frame, pulling all those tabs, switching out the picture, cleaning the glass, putting the picture back in, putting the tabs down, then painfully trying to match up the hanging holes with the nails…yeah…I want no part in that.
For reals…SnapeZo Picture Frames are changing my life. I don’t have to debate what artwork I want to display, what family pictures I should print, and I no longer have to worry about my refrigerator being covered in school artwork…because I can switch it out in seconds.
And because it’s so easy to change out pictures with Snapezo Frames, I’m giving you some free printables in multiple colorways…you don’t have to make any huge design decisions. Just switch it out when you change your mind!
