Easy Art Project: Staple Art for Kids

Staple Drawings •

Sometimes, those crazy kids come up with their own cool art projects. Usually they’re pretty simple, but capture attention enough so that they spend a while – or even a few days- making lots of the project they have discovered. Enter: staple art.

When Fen was 6, she had a love affair with her stapler. She shunned tape and glue and stapled everything that might even come close to need being fastened. When she couldn’t find anything else that needed fastening, she turned to small pieces of notebook paper and went to town.

She filled notebooks.

Christian came home from work one day with 3 small black frames, popped 3 of these staple drawings inside, and we’ve had them hanging above our sofa for the past 4 years.

So there you go- another quick and easy art project for your creative kids. You should try to make a few of these, too. It’s surprisingly fun to wield a stapler and see what you can make with it.

  1. Those are quite funny as I have had stapler happy kids also but, I have found the stapling is quite limiting as they usually can’t get into the middle of the paper with the stapler. How do you get around that? How did they get so far in to make the nose and mouth etc.?

  2. You have the most insane amazingly creative ideas for art projects! I LOVE that it’s something so ordinary as a staple taken to the next step as art! LOVE this!

    • It’s so funny- we’ve had these things hanging around for years and I just noticed them again one day recently and though other kids would probably have fun making these, too!

  3. these are SO cool, Jeanette. I’m just finding them home but, we’re coming into the perfect week to give this project a whirl. I can’t wait! The kids are going to love it. Brilliant.
