One of my favorite stores moved further away, which didn’t make me happy. But the other day we took a trip out there and I found some cool vintage posters. For just a few dollars, I turned them into vintage poster art and hung the first one in my sitting room. (This post contains affiliate links.)
I’ve had the bird poster on the left for awhile. The new one is the smaller vintage bird poster on the right. I had the empty frame hanging on the wall for several months trying to decide what to add to it.
I wanted something a little unique. And it had to complement the existing bird posters in the room.
When I came across the vintage poster art at Soulful Sparrow, I knew I was onto something. I found a couple of botanical prints.
I also found a couple of farm animal posters, too.
The sheep and cow are going to be part of my fall decor.
To turn the posters into wall art, you simply add two strips of stained wood to the top and bottom of the poster using hot glue. You can find the strips of wood at a craft store. Then you hot glue rope or twine to the top strip of wood for hanging. You can see a hanging poster tutorial on my blog for more detailed instructions.
I hung the vintage bird poster directly from the frame. Of course, you don’t need a frame to hang it.
If you buy posters already put together for hanging, you’ll spend around $25 to $35. But if you purchase the poster and supplies to make your own, you’ll spend about $7. You can also buy poster hanging kits if you don’t want to shop for individual supplies, but you won’t save money that way.
I love the look of the vintage hanging posters and it’s a great way to decorate your walls on a budget. You can swap them out according to the seasons, too. What items do you like to hang on your walls to personalize your rooms?
