I was looking for wall art to hang in my kids’ playroom when I found John W. Golden’s posters. I’ve been a long time fan of his Etsy shop, and while I loved the idea of his “order of the management” posters, I couldn’t find one that said what I wanted to say. I feel like I spend enough of my day reminding my kids to play nice and clean up, and I wanted the playroom wall art to say something more whimsical and fun. I chose favorite quotes from books and a well known movie line to make some very inexpensive wall art.
- Foam Poster Board
- Engineer Print
- Mod Podge
To make your own poster wall art:
Step one: Design your poster or download mine here.
Step two: Print it at Staples as an engineering print (it costs less than $3). Tell them to size the image 20 by 30 inches. This is the size of the foam poster board at Dollar Tree.
Step three: Use double sided tape to adhere the print to the foam board. Trim off excess.
Step four: Paint the edges black.
Step five: Seal the poster with a very thin layer of Mod Podge. I used the antique formula to give it an aged look.
I simply nailed the posters onto the wall. Everyone who comes into the room reads them and has a little laugh. This project is so easy and inexpensive to make that I can change them whenever I want. What favorite quote would you put on your custom wall art poster?
