How to hang a banner poster

This alphabet banner was made using Annie Sloan Image Medium. To hang your finished banner, you will need two half-round dowels, some string, heavy duty double sided tape, and some screw-in brass eyes.

  1. Cut the half-round dowels so that they are both 8cm longer that the width of your banner.

  2. Take some some heavy duty double sided sticky tape (carpet tape for example) and stick it to the flat side of dowel starting 4cm in and running until 4cm from the end. Make sure that one edge of the tape runs along one edge of the dowel so that the tape only overhang on one side.

  3. Lay the dowel flat side down and run a craft knife along the edge to cut off the overhanging tape.

  4. Now peel away the backing of the tape to reveal the sticky surface on the dowel.

  5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 so that you have dowels attached to both the top and bottom of your banner.

  6. Take the brass eyes and screw them in to the top of the top dowel 1cm from the left and right edges of the banner.

  7. Tie one end of a piece of string to one of the eyes, and the other end to the other. Your banner is now ready to hang!
