Motivational Poster

Introduction: Motivational Poster

About: Love exploring different media from art to circuity.

During these tough times staying at home it's been very gloomy and we feel de motivated so I wanted to make something which would cheer me up as I get out of bed.


Paper and coloured card
Glue stick
Ruler and pencil
Foam board (or cardboard)
Small LED lights

Step 1: Sketch

Well what motivates you, going to the gym, learning new things or simply making something. Try to incorporate that in your own way by using words and images.

My words... Simply "DREAM BIG"

Step 2: Blast Off! 🚀

Careful scissors are sharp. Cut out the ufo and rocket, make a couple of smokey clouds to give a more realistic feel that the rocket is moving, I used a white and gray coloured card.

Play around with the text and make something fun.

Step 3: Glue It!

Now probably is the best time to assemble and glue the coloured pieces onto a nice and simple background.

Step 4: Lights Camera Action

I went for small led LED bulbs connected to a 4.5v DC battery pack, well it was bright enough for the night. To make a frame i used white foam board to keep the poster in place, you could always use spare cardboard and go over with coloured paper to make it neater.

Well what are you waiting for hook it up!
