Displaying Your Kids Collections

October 12, 2010

My daughter, Sloan is a collector, I am not. My daughter likes lots of stuff, I do not. This leaves me a little stumped at what to do with all her stuff.

Sloan has been collecting Pez dispenser’s since she was a baby and this has been where they’ve sat for years.

An idea came to mind after we moved into our new house. I had a left over bulletin board that was being used in my old office that I was planning on throwing out.

I sprayed it with some left over pink spray paint.

Bought some handitak and attached it to the back of the dispenser and measured out where I’d place each individual Pez.

The finished result!

I hung it in her bathroom, since she has one all to herself, so now she gets to see her collection everyday! Not bad for a free piece of artwork!

    1. This is awesome! I highly suggest you send this to Ohdeedoh. I can definitely see this featured.

    1. I’ve been a collector since I was in grade school and I think my first was a match book collection. I have no idea what Mom did with the 2 boxes. I have one question. Where are you going to put the rest of them? I think I still have 2 over here that I’ve saved for her. Go buy another board!

    1. What a cool idea! My oldest son collects Pez, although he’s 19 now, so we don’t display them anymore. I remember the day when we were trying to figure out what to do with all of them.
      Thanks for sharing on Blog Party!
