Land of Nod Inspired Memo Boards

Our playroom is still coming along slow and steady. It is the “Little Engine That Could” of the rooms in our house. I constantly have to keep telling myself, “I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.”

Recently, I have been working on completing the final touches. For some of the wall decor, I wanted to make something that brought in color, but still served a purpose. That is when I stumbled upon these cute Memo Boards from Land Of Nod. They are perfect for our needs and an easy DIY project.

They are really easy to make with a picture frame with a backing, eye-hooks and wire. Here is how I made them:

First, I went through our unused picture frames we have in our basement and came across a few of these awesome IKEA Ribba frames to use.

To cover up the tiny holes in the backing, I smeared a bit of nail hole filler across the spots.

Next, I spray painted all of the components. I wanted three of these memo boards to hang up. One in orange, one in aqua and one in white. (For the white one, I did not paint the frame, as it was already white.)

Then, I measured along the edge of the frame. Once I had decided where I wanted the wire to go across, I drilled holes for the eye-hooks and screwed them in.

I continued until all four hooks were inserted into each frame.

After that, I used pliers to tightly string the wire across the frame, through the eye-hooks and twisted at the ends.

Finally, I placed the backing on the frame and starting hanging artwork using clothes pins. (The large clothes pins are working fine for now, but I think the next time I am out shopping I may consider picking up some of the smaller ones.)

Aren’t they cute? I am in love with them! Perfect for displaying the kids’ art! How do you display your child’s artwork?
