Framing your child’s artwork not only helps celebrate their creativity but also adds interesting decor to your home. It’s the perfect time of year to help your budding artist create a one-of-a-kind work of art to give to a parent, grandparent or teacher.
We love the work by Spielkkind! Exploring different artist’s techniques, such as using unusual items like screws and nuts, you can help spark your child’s imagination and encourage them to think outside the box. Keep the artwork simple and stylish with these DIY 3D frames by using just black lines and metallic hardware.
- box photo frame
- black fineliner
- hardware (e.g screws, washers, nuts etc.)
Take a piece of paper and have your child draw an image using a pencil. You can start with the hardware on the page and draw around it or you can add the hardware to a finished drawing, matching up shapes and creating detail.
Go over the drawing using a black fine tipped pen. Erase any pencil marks, if desired.
Glue the hardware in place.
Frame your picture. Using a box frame gives enough space for all the hardware. You could also try making multiple layers for a truly 3D look.
Why not exercise your story telling muscles and create a series of framed artwork?1
