To recap, I wanted something cool but not permanent. A posterboard became a Gotham City backdrop/headboard.
Of course, I couldn't stop there. I had a superhero image saved to my computer from some 'research' I had done for a couple superhero birthday parties we had.
Horrible stealer disclaimer: I do not know where the image came from. I know that's a mortal sin to artists, so I am not posting the actual image. It's easy enough to find/create one if you want to duplicate this.
The original image was in color, but I thought it might be kind of cool in black and white-- like a comic book kind of look.
...plus, my husband has a large format B&W printer at work, so he could do it for free :)
Don't worry if you don't have a hookup like that-- the large business supply stores do these (sometimes called engineer prints) for about $5.
I mounted it on foamboard and hung it on the wall! This time there was already a nail, so I hooked it on there, but I'm sure painters tape would work for this one too. (It's posterboard and paper, so it's really light!)
This is so simple, but I really love how it looks. I like the retro-looking faces.
Friendly tip-- you may want to find one with a slightly less intimidating picture of Hulk. It may have been the source of a bad dream during the first week it was up...
Even more coming up soon!
