To Toss or Not to Toss? What to do with a Ripped Poster
My son ripped the corner of a poster that was on his wall in his Mickey Mouse themed bedroom while jumping on the bed, which he's not supposed to be doing! But instead of throwing it out, I had the idea to modpodge it onto a blank canvas.
With my son's help, we centered the part we wanted to see on the canvas and cut around it wide enough to be able to fold over the edges to the back. We then removed the poster, and painted the blank canvas with the modpodge, stuck the poster onto it, and smoothed it down. Then turned it over and folded the edges over to tape them to the back with packing tape.
Last we painted a thin layer of modpodge over the top of the poster to give it texture, so when it's dry it looks more like a painting. My son was very proud of it and it looks even better than before in his room!
