Gear Gallery

This sweet kid-art display is also a functional spot to hang all the stuff you need to grab as you go — everything from backpacks to dog leashes to reusable totes for the supermarket. Your little Picassos can customize canvases with portraits and picture

What youll need

  • 8- by 10-inch pre-primed stretched canvas (ours cost $6.50 at Michaels)
  • 4 white 1/2-inch screws
  • 2 single robe hooks
  • Drywall anchor screws (or appropriate anchoring hardware for your walls)

How to make it

  • Decorate the canvas (we used crayons and watercolors, plus marker for outlines).

  • With the 1/2-inch screws, attach the hooks through the canvass lower corners into the wood frame.

  • Insert the anchor screws through the top corners and the wood frame until their tips protrude out the back. Use them to mark the placement of the anchor holes.

  • Gear Gallery: Step 4

    Install the anchor screws or hardware, then attach the canvas firmly to the wall.
