Steps 1 and 2: separate pairs of magnets and mark one side of each pair to keep track of magnetism (either attracting or repelling side).

Steps 3 and 4: mark distance between magnets and glue opposing magnets to poplar sticks using multi purpose fast drying glue. Double up twine and glue each end to top piece of poster holder.

Once glue is dry, secure 24x36" poster with magnetic top and bottom pieces and display!

Alternative looks: paint or stain poplar sticks to match your poster art, or choose different color or style of string or twine.
