Star Spangled Poster Art

A while back I bought a poster at Hobby Lobby from the clearance section. Since I never pay full price for anything it was a pretty good deal at 75% off. For some reason I thought it was the Declaration of Independence and with the 4th of July less then a month away I decided to get to work on a quick easy project.

The " Star Spangled Banner " poster was already tan in color but it needed a little more age to it so with the help of a lighter, instant aging was accomplished.

I simply burned the edges all the way around and a few spots throughout the poster from underneath. 

This edge got away from me a little but the words are still intact. 

I used the top of a pallet that had no spaces. Painted it red,white and blue then distressed and aged with stain.

I applied Mod- Podge to the back of the poster and pressed to the pallet.

Starting from the center working my way out gently pressed the poster down.

It did end up with a few wrinkles in the poster but I think it just adds to it and makes it look old.

I let it dry overnight and then applied more Mod- Podge over the whole top of the poster to seal it.

Mike added 3 rusty stars to the top and a chain for hanging.

This was a simple project to help celebrate the 4th. 

It is only hung on the fence for photo purposes since it should probably not get wet.

I really have no wall space in my shoe box size house that I live in, but here it is propped on my piano.

(excuse the dust )
