For the conclusion of this series, I’ve got one last way to keep kids’ art over the long term – by turning it into something else.  There are a ton of options out there for doing this, ranging from homemade crafty to high tech and professional.  Above is a beautiful example of a blog header made from a finger painting.

And here is lilla a‘s transformation of a child’s drawing into a cuddly doll.  If you’d like to try this but aren’t sure where to start, check out this tutorial at Little Birdie Secrets (via HowDoesShe?).  Then read on for more options that will turn that artwork into a treasured keepsake.

Pillows by you (via ohdeedoh) will turn artwork into a pillow for $24 – $44. What a sweet way to integrate an older sibling’s art into a new nursery.

lilsugar features artwork turned into rugs. A luxury item for a truly luxurious price.

Over at Create-Celebrate-Explore is this wearable art made with iron-on transfer paper and white T-shirts.

And finally, this adorable Father’s Day present at lovely design was made by cutting out the word “Daddy” and overlaying it onto one of Adelaide’s masterpieces.

I hope you enjoyed this 5 part series on Honoring Kids’ Artwork and that it has inspired you to find a way to proudly display your little ones’ masterpieces.
