DIY Kids Art Wall with Target Clip Strips

Are you looking for an easy way to display kid’s artwork and keepsakes?

If so, check out this large gallery wall that I created using 9 of these strip clips found at my local Target store and mounting tape (I prefer the tape as it’s easier than using nails and avoids a bunch of holes in the wall). The clips are actually very lightweight so the tape holds them without any issue. I hung three rows of three strip clip units, but you can hang as many or as little as you’d like.

I found these clips in the One Spot area typically located in the front of Target stores – these wood “Strip Clips” were available in different wood colors and were priced at just $3 each. Each unit has three clips so they are perfect for hanging art and/or photos.

I am having trouble finding anything similar online, so if you find something like these, let me know and I’ll add a link.

DIY Art Display Wall

Supplies Needed:
$3 Clip Strips (I found them in the Target One Spot)
Heavy Adhesive Mounting Tape
Level Tool
Measuring Tape
Chalk and/or Pencil
hang a gallery wall with heavy mounting tape

Directions: Clean and dry the wall making sure to get rid of dust on the areas the tape will touch. Use a good leveling tool, measuring tape, and piece of chalk or a pencil to mark three straight and evenly spaced lines on the wall.

Place mounting tape on the back of a strip clip and press against the wall using the line you marked as a guide. It’s also good to place the level on top of the strip clip as you press down. Repeat the process with the rest of your strip clips, and hang your art.

This was a pretty easy and inexpensive DIY project that has had a big impact on this room! I love to look at the colorful artwork my kids create and now we can easily move pieces around as new ones are made throughout the year.

Another option for hanging artwork, do what Collin does and use the IKEA Wiring Hanging System!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
