We have boxes full of artwork done by our little artist, Sam. He loves to draw and he most certainly loves to keep all of his artwork. I can’t blame him because he spends hours drawing. He especially loves to draw sports logos and team uniforms. He often creates variations of the same look, like a little collection of uniforms. Instead of just stacking up all of his artwork or closing it up in a box, I wanted to find an inexpensive way to frame some of his favorites.
For some reason, he is a University of Virginia basketball fan. I’m not sure why since we are in the heart of the Big Blue Nation in Lexington, Kentucky. He’s always been his own man and not own to join the crowd, so although he is a University of Kentucky fan, his number one team is the Hoos.
He spent an afternoon creating six uniform looks for the University of Virginia while hanging out at one of his sister’s swim meets. It kept him busy the whole meet and he took great care in creating each of the looks.
Clipboard “frames” make a great choice in his bedroom. The slightly industrial/rustic look of the clipboards work perfectly in a boys room. And, we simply hung them using push pins. Grouping the clipboards in a group of six creates a more substantial, collected look.
The best part about using the clipboards is that they can easily be changed out. If he decides to next draw a collection of uniforms for his favorite baseball team, we can simply change out the artwork without having to take the clipboards off the wall.
One pack of three clipboard was under $5 at Office Depot, so it was also a very inexpensive way to frame his drawings. And, if he tires of the look, he can later use the clipboards for drawing when on the go! These clipboard would also make a great backdrop for a dessert table grouped in a group of 3, 6 or 9!
