DIY Vintage Style Hanging Poster

DIY Vintage Style Hanging Poster

This past weekend when my hubby and I made a road trip to Waco, TX, we found this unique store called Honey’s Home+Style. They had a fun assortment of Cavallini vintage style wrapping paper that reminded me of the beautiful antique botanical prints and maps that are so popular.  Unfortunately, these can be difficult to find and are usually very pricey. I couldn’t believe that this beautiful paper only cost $3.95 a sheet. I ended up picking a fun History of Birds print and a map of Paris knowing that I could easily make a fun hanging vintage style poster out of them. 

If you don’t have a local retailer that sales this paper you can purchase it online here

To get started you will need:

  • 2 dowels – I used 5/8″
  • glue gun
  • twine
  • staple gun
  • wood stain (optional) –  I used General Finishes black stain

     1. Cut dowels 1″ longer than the poster (leaving you 0.5″ either side of the print).

     2. Stain dowels if desired and allow to dry completely.

     3. Place a thin bead of hot glue along the bottom of the print and attach to the dowel. Alternatively,   you can also use staples to attach the print to the dowel. Repeat this at the top of the print

4. Tie a knot at the end of the twine and staple on the back of the print 1″ from the end of the dowel. Thread twine to other side and repeat step.

Not bad for a fun vintage style hanging poster that cost $7.50 to make 🙂

Happy DIYing!!
