Art Hanging System from IKEA

Art Hanging System from IKEAParents, ever wonder how to display all that wonderful artwork your kids bring home at the end of the school year? The mom of one of my students shared this great idea with me (thank you, Molly Craig!) and it’s so clever I had to pass it along!  She created a “hallway gallery”  for her son’s artwork, which can be easily changed as often as they like.  This simple hanging system (originally designed for curtains) came from IKEA! It’s inexpensive, adjustable to whatever length you need, and easy to mount in any room. Small stainless steel clips hold any size 2D artwork, so you can change your display with the seasons or as new artwork comes home. This could have potential beyond the home, too… maybe in your art room or for your next art show?

    I have this wire hanging thingy. I used it to hang Polaroids my girlfriend and I took. Works great, but the metal clips slide almost too easily on the metal wire.

      Isaac, if your wire is level and pulled really tight, the clips shouldn’t slide. Maybe trying a different type of clip would help?
