Poster Redesign

A Poster Redesign is a great way to make the old new again. If you're tired of the same old poster hanging in your room, transform it completely.

Gather a few tools, decide what poster needs work, and then get creative -- don't be afraid to alter the image in a big way. The more you allow your poster to change, the more brand new it will seem when you're done.

What You'll Need:

  • Newspaper
  • Large poster
  • Poster paints
  • Paintbrush
  • Markers
  • Blunt ­scissors
  • Pencil
  • Construction paper
  • Removable tape

Step 1: Cover your work surface with newspaper.

Step 2: Get creative! If you're using a poster of Michael Jordan, make the famous basketball player into a football player by painting a football helmet and uniform on Michael. Make a poster of puppies into a poster of the latest space aliens. Use markers to draw in antennas on the puppies, spaceships in space, and stars in the sky.

Step 3: Let the paint dry and hang your new poster on the wall.

Use these new posters as a game for your next party. You can play pin the helmet on Michael or pin the antenna on the space alien puppies.

Draw helmet or antenna shapes on construction paper. Cut them out, put a piece of removable tape on the back of each, and use them as the game pieces to 'pin' on the poster.

On the next page you'll find a project that will dress your windows as well as your walls.
