  • How to make wall decor. Quick & Easy Diy Vintage Poster Scrolls - Step 1
    Step 1

    To begin, cut a piece of kraft paper that’s twice as long as your print is high (for an A3 print, this is 33"). Use something heavy (like a book) to keep both ends of the kraft paper laying flat.

    Apply a strip of double-sided tape to all four sides of your print. Remove the tape’s backing paper. Stick your print to the middle of the kraft paper, as per the image.

    Next, push a piece of wood/a ruler up against the bottom of the print. This works as a guide, making sure the space you leave between the bottom of the print and the bottom of the kraft paper is the same on the top and the bottom.

    Add a number of strips of double-sided tape to your kraft paper. Using the piece of wood/ruler as a guide, run a strip of mounting tape just under the wood/ruler.

    Remove the backing tape from the double-sided tape and the mounting tape. Place your dowel at the very bottom edge of the paper. Roll a small amount of paper around the dowel, then continue to roll the dowel up, tucking the paper as you go.

    Once you reach the mounting tape, roll the dowel over the mounting tape and press down firmly. Repeat at the top.

    Once your dowels are securely attached, tie a piece of jute twine around the top dowels to create a hanging rope. And that's it!
