Step 1: Print

I made mine 24" x 36", but you can print whatever size works best for you. I found the cheapest place to print a poster this size is Office Max/Depot. My print was 19$. Note: I found the larger you go, the more pixelated the print shows up.
Step 2: Stain
I had the wood cut at Lowe's so it was already ready for me to stain. Start by brushing on a thin layer of stain. If you desire a darker finish, you may want two coats. You'll want to make sure you leave at least an hour between staining and assembling.
Step 3: Glue
Draw a line of glue across the back of each wood trim and place against the bottom and top of banner with pressure. I put books on top and let it sit for about 20 min to ensure it was attached securely.
Step 4: Cut & Staple
Measure out the string according to what level you want the banner to hang. I added 5" to the width and then allowed additional length for the knots. Once string is measured and cut, tie knots on each end so it catches on the staple. Next, staple on each corner, as the picture shows.
Step 5: Hang
Now your masterpiece is ready to hang.
