Ok so someone on craigslist is offering 2 BIG pieces of pegboard up for free. I'm the lucky recipient and I have seen ideas but I dunno... I was hoping one pegboard could be for my crafts, the other for my son (for... whatever). I don't know how to go about this though. How do you hang things on a pegboard? Anyone have any craft or kids pegboard ideas to throw at me?

Okay, I haven't really thought this one out, but it would be cool
to take them and a couple sets of mini lights and make like a giant lite-brite
looking thing

Or cut one into smaller pieces and let the kids make string pictures with shoelaces
or yarn. Like string art or something

Okay, for a more grown-up one...think of the pegboard as a grid system and use
A cross-stitch pattern and chunky yarn for a larger scale image. Or instead of
Yarn, maybe fabric cut into strips. Hmmm the fabric would fray - maybe if the fabric
Were sewn into strips...gotta think about that one (maybe try it)

Use it as a dressing screen. Make frames to hold the pegboard and use strips of fabric
(maybe some old scarves) Cut wide like 12" and woven together to cover the pegboard surface. The holes can be used to anchor the fabric in place on the front ( or hot glue)
And then use the peg hooks on the back to hang necklaces, belts, scarves, purses. On the back of the other panel, put a mirror. Use a set of inexpensive door hinges to fasten the 2 panels together edge to edge, So it'll be like a dressing room back there

Have fun & post pics!

Giant lite brite is awesome idea! I know a lot of people use peg board to organize tools in the garage..it would be cute if you did the same thing on the wall of his room with play tools!
