Favorite Modern Art Crafts for Kids

Think you need to buy expensive home accent decor?? Think again! This weekend would be a wonderful time to indulge the kiddos in some fun process-based art projects that can be displayed proudly in your home. Grown ups may find themselves doing a bit of art of their own too!

I was so excited to see our Stained “Glass” Sculpture project featured on Crafty Crow this morning, as it was one of my all-time favorites! I thought I would post a quick round-up of some of our other favorite Modern Art projects!

Stained “Glass” Sculpture

This art project is still on display on our living room wall, and every time we have visitors it receives lots of compliments! The girls were quite proud of their collaborative work effort.

Abstract Wall Art

This one hangs on Emily’s bedroom wall, and she absolutely adores it! She has asked to make another one, and she won’t have to twist my arm.

Modern Art

I love that these process-bassed projects bring unique results every time they are done!

Have fun!!


  1. Dear Valerie,

    How come my art doesn’t get hung on the walls? Huh?


  2. I love Mark’s comment =)

    That stained glass craft is on my all-time favorites list from your blog =)

    • Thanks, Maryanne! It was a really fun project, and I made a few of them myself too. πŸ™‚

  3. So beautiful! Def going to try one or more out!

  4. Well these really are works of art! Love the stained glass sculpture with the light behind it. I’d put all of them on my wall! πŸ™‚

  5. I just love all the colorful energy that you put into your crafts. The wall art is my favorite!

  6. Now that the girls are through their “modern” phase, will they be kicking back to the baroque period? :0)

  7. Those are so colorful and pretty!

  8. So colorful!

  9. We used your Stained Glass sculpture technique to redo an old lampshade ( http://bixi-and-goxi.blogspot.com/2011/03/farbenfrohe-lampenreparatur.html ) – the kids had a blast and we loooove the result! Thank you so much for the inspiration and greetings from Germany!

  10. I love the abstract wall art and will use it for my upcoming Crafts-on-Wheels parties! Thanks!
