I made this using two sides of a tall cardboard box that I had brought home from work recently, some wrapping paper left over from another project, electrical tape, a stapler, a hot glue gun, and some white twine.
This is some of the artwork that he had hung on his bedroom door.
This is the box I used. I just cut off two sides and made sure they were straight.
I took the wrapping paper and wrapped it around just the front and taped it to the back, just like wrapping a gift. I then took my hot glue gun and put four big dabs on each corner and one one each side in the middle. I have read that you can just peel it off the wall and it won’t cause damage, so hopefully that is correct!
Next, I just took some twine and strung it up in a zig zag pattern, stapling it at each edge. I then placed a piece of black electrical tape over each staple, to help with support and also add some contrast. I hung tiny clothes pins every so often, and he can easily hang whatever he wants to. This is the finished product. He already started hanging things up there.
And here is my little man standing in front of his new art gallery- as you can see from this picture, I added the black tape and the clothes pins after taking this picture. He was super excited that I made it for him! And if the paper rips I can easily change the whole thing out. When I want to remove it it won’t be difficult and I spent no money on it!
