How to Flatten Wrinkled Posters

A poster of your favorite movie star, band, singer or artist can show off your allegiance and interests. Decorative posters can make your room feel more unique and can make a dorm room feel more like a home away from home. If your posters get wrinkled when you take them down, you don't have to throw them away. Instead, you can flatten out a wrinkled poster and hang it on your wall with pride.

Reused posters can make your room feel more like home.

Step 1

Roll out the wrinkled poster and pin it to your ironing board with straight pins, so it is held firmly in place.

Step 2

Place a bed sheet over the poster. The sheet will form a protective barrier between the hot iron and the poster so that it will not get burned.

Step 3

Plug in the iron and adjust the heat to the lowest possible setting. Let the iron heat up.

Step 4

Iron the poster through the sheet, starting at the top and working your way across the poster horizontally.
