DIY Vintage Science Poster - So easy to make & a great way to hang art with out making any holes in the wall!

Many of you remember our new, super old, card catalog that is now in our rental. Well, I needed some art for above the card catalog & I had to get creative since we live in a rental I couldn’t make any new holes in the wall.  After scouring the internet for some lovely prints I stumbled onto the New York Public Library gallery section on their website website & found some lovely botanical prints to get crafty with!

To make the vintage inspired botanical science prints you need some pieces of wood, rope, staple gun, screws, & some prints of your choice. I printed my botanical prints off at Staples to be about 12×20. We used scrap pieces of wood we had lying around, you can use any kind of wood you have. We cut the pieces of wood into 12 pieces about a foot long {one for each side of the print on the top & the bottom for all three}. We then placed the print in between the boards on the top & bottom & screwed the two boards together after staining them & allowing them to dry. After all the boards were screwed together I stapled some lovely burlap rope that I had lying around to the back of the top boards. For hooks I used 3M hooks that I painted copper so that I would not have to put any holes in the walls.

What do you think of my DIY vintage science poster art? It was a fun little addition on top of our vintage card catalog. Which by the way we haven’t even started working on yet, but hey, at least it’s pretty just the way it is, damage & all. Let me know what you think in the comments below, on Facebook, or chat with me on Instagram. xx

    Just love these wall prints. So simple yet so beautiful! Curious what type of paper or card stock was used? I know Staples has alot of different choices for prints. Thanks!

    Hi I love these DIY botanical prints you made. I went ahead and visited the site you got them from. Did you have to purchase the images?

    I was wondering how you downloaded and printed your prints from the website. I love the idea, and was looking to make some prints, but it seems that the resolution I am downloading will only allow for a 5×6 print. Did you end up purchasing the larger download? Just looking for a thrifty way to print some of these.

    Thanks so much,

    Kylene

    What a great idea! I’ve been wanting to do something like this. Would you please share the files for these images or direct me to the proper search term on the New York Public Library website?

    Thanks so much!

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    I have loads of concert posters and this idea is perfect for them. I’m in the process of making three and just hung my first one. It appears that the top boards in your pictures lie flat against the wall. Did you do something special to make them lie flat? The top boards hang angled away from the wall. I tried stapling the rope all the way at the top of the board and it still isn’t hanging flat.

    Thanks for the awesome idea! I look forward to hanging these in different ways: chain, pipe, etc.
