personalized gifts for grandparents "Curtains"… Kinda customized gifts for mom

I have this window in my house that has been sitting naked for over a year, as I refuse to accept that I am never going to sew a curtain for it.

I needed a place to display them allpersonalized gifts for grandparents, so this is what I came up with! It’;s just nails, string, and tiny wooden clothespins. After school everyday she picks a spot and we pile the artwork on. It’;s working pretty well at hiding my disgusting robe-clad self from the poor unsuspecting neighbors while I’;m making coffee in the morning, too.What do you think? Ghetto? Or cute?
