Vintage Inspired Poster

Welcome! It’s time for another round of “Oh my word, would you look at that!”  At the end of the post you will find links to the other back to school ideas from my Southern Decorating Friends!

School has started for my grandsons, a little hard to believe.

Seems like it’s earlier and earlier every year!

We took a last minute trip to six flags with them a couple weeks ago, we knew it would be the final fling before they started.

While we were there Lane kept trying to catch a butterfly.

And of course that got me to thinking!

My son claims that I plant messages in stories. He says I know what you’re trying to do. But it took him 18 years to figure that out. Now I’m using the same teaching method with my grandkids.

I thought I’d plant a lesson in a poster, sort of speak.

He’s sitting there doing his homework and he looks up at the butterfly poster and learns something.

That kind of subliminal lesson.

I ordered my poster (decorative wrap as they call it)from Amazon, pretty much the same place I order anything online, cause it’s easy.  I actually bought 2, the butterfly one and a map. Here’s my affiliate link (Decorative Wrap 20X28 Nat History Butterflies) and (Cavallini & Co. Hemispheres Map Decorative Decoupage Poster Wrapping Paper Sheet)

After the glue dries, attach twine to both sides of the poster.  I just tied a knot and trimmed.

Decorate with flash cards, hang them with washi tape. Let the kids pick out fun school supplies.

Instead of homework being a chore, make it fun!

This project is inspired by several posters that my friend Carol did for the store.  I finally got around to finding a reason to make one!

Thanks Carol 🙂

    3. This is so wonderful Debi, love this. Didn’t order butterflies but did order one for bees/honey. Have some other graphics printed out from Graphics Fairy about bees, skeps, hives, excellent ones so this will go so well with others. Getting ready to make new art for gallery wall and wherever else. Love this Had to order it right away before i forgot about it. Sure glad I clicked on your post, have feeling I’ll be ordering more. At least they’re affordable.
      Happy days.
