DIY Poster Hanger


Poster Hangers are such a great alternative to a standard picture frame. In this post I’ll show you how super easy it is to make your own from scratch.

You’ll need:
Wood
Hand saw
Strong, thin, magnets
Sand paper
Eye hooks
Scissors
String

Step 1
Saw your wood into four even lengths. You can make them how ever long you need! If you have an artwork in mind already, measure the length of the top side of the artwork. Sand the cut edges to make them nice and smooth.
Tip: Use a miter box to get a nice straight cut.

Step 2
Attach magnets to one side of each of the wood pieces. If your magnets are self adhesive then you can just whack them straight on there. If not, most craft glues should do the trick. I always recommend UHU All Purpose.
Totally my favourite glue!
If you’re making this for one particular print you could simply use double sided tape to attach the wood to the print.

Step 3
Choose the piece you want to be at the top and on the front of the poster and screw the eye hooks into the top.
