How to Make Posters for Senior Night Basketball
Gather your poster making supplies at a local craft store. Stock up on poster board, paint, markers, glitter, glue, and any other items you'd like to decorate your poster with. Choose colors that coincide with the team you're rooting for.
Clear your working space. It's best to make the posters in a garage, driveway, or parking lot. This avoids making a mess indoors, and allows you to have ample working space to create your posters.
Lay the posters out. Decide what you want each poster to say. They can say encouraging words, make funny jabs at the opposing teams or take three and create a common cheer like, "Go! Fight! Win!"
Write out the words. Write out whatever words you want on the poster in pencil first, allowing you to erase mistakes. Once this is finished, go over the pencil in marker and finally paint over the marker for a bold, bright pigment that can be read from everywhere on the basketball court.
Add trim and details to your posters. The words on the poster are great, but adding trim and details is what makes them unique to your team. Choose the appropriate colors for your school or team and go to town gluing glitter to enhance the look of your poster.
Tips & Warnings
- Only add glitter to select letters for maximum effect.
- When adding glitter, outline the letter or fill in the space with glue and slowly pour glitter on top. Pick the poster up and shake off excess glitter onto another poster board to avoid wasting glitter.
- Because this is for school, you might want to ask an art teacher to contribute supplies versus purchasing them.
