Tips for Custom Framing Kid’s Artwork

Kids are creative by nature, so are adults. But to encourage sustained creativity, it needs to be celebrated. Custom frame kid’s artwork to celebrate their best works instead of stuffing it in a drawer for later. Maybe you don’t have a special drawer, but your fridge is becoming a little overwhelmed with recent artwork. Show your budding artist how proud you are of their masterpieces with custom framing. It’s a great way to personalize your home, and they can make thoughtful, unique gifts for grandparents and other family members. Here are a few tips to help you with custom framing Kid’s artwork.

Choose Your Favorite Pieces

This is the first step in custom framing kid’s artwork. Think about which pieces bring you the most joy or the ones you are most proud to display.  How about the one that brings a smile to your face every time you see it? Kids can generate a lot of artwork. Once your fridge is full, you may find you have a few stacks or drawers full here and there. Go through it every couple of months and edit it down to your absolute favorites. Store some of them in a large box while pulling out a few to custom frame.

Choosing which ones to custom frame is undoubtedly the most difficult step. Maybe you like the color palette they chose. Perhaps it’s one that reminds you of your favorite abstract artist. Or perhaps, it’s something that came about when making a special memory. These can all be good reasons to choose a specific piece.

Choosing the Mat and Frame for Kid’s Artwork

There are plenty of options when it comes to choosing the mat board and frames for kid’s artwork. By combining some colors, such as a black frame with a white mat board, you can make colors pop and achieve a fun, playful look. Using a darker frame and mat board provides a more sophisticated and elegant look. You may prefer using neutral frames and brightly colored mats for a unique look. With a neutral frame, you can match the mat board with the colors used in the artwork. The neutral frame will keep it from being too visually busy. But basically, you and your child can choose whatever style and colors you want for custom framing.
