2 wooden canes
PVA hobby glue
Jute string
Knife or saw

    Step 1

    Firstly have all your materials at the ready, then proceed to spreading the poster on a flat surface; if it was previously rolled, counter-roll it in order to even out the curled edges and secure to the flat surface with heavy objects in order to weigh down the poster.

    Position each cane along the bottom and top of the poster, ensure you leave a centimetre overhang. Once you have marked how much of the cane you need, remove the excess with a saw or sharp knife (for younger readers, this part requires parental supervision or aid).

    Slide a trail of glue along the desired area on which you want to secure the wooden cane. Make sure the glue trail is in a straight line and close to the end of the poster so as you don't cover any of the poster's details.
