A Diy Poster Hanger

Today I have a poorly boy at home. He has a sore throat and a nasty cold which saw us all up at 3am. We're tired! He has himself ensconced on the sofa, under a blanket and is watching endless episodes of Red Dwarf, Father Ted and Fawlty Towers. In between serving endless hot drinks, I thought I would get on with a little diy project that I've been thinking about for a while.

This picture hanger took all of about twenty minutes to make and I'm super pleased with how it has turned out. I have not photographed how I did it as I simply used this wonderful tutorial over on Yvestown. Isn't her wall chart beautiful? I have slighty adapted Yvonne's tutorial as I used super glue rather than nails and I bought this piece of stripwood which I cut to fit my print size. It's actually a sheet of wrapping paper from Cavallini & Co, but it has a lovely vintage feel to the paper and the style. They have so many great designs, so I took a bit of time choosing, I really like those bird and butterfly prints, but in the end I really was taken by the eye chart. I bought my wrap from Willow and Stone and the twine I already had in the house.

I've hung it next to the macrame planter which I made last year. Amazingly, that plant has survived and seems to be thriving!
