Need Help hanging odd size poster

My daughter has a poster that is 12 feet long.  The only wall it will work on has a fireplace in the middle of the wall.


Fireplace is brick floor to ceiling and sticks out 3.5 inches away from the wall.  What can I do to secure the poster to to something and the left and right ends.  Has to be something that matches the 3.5 inches of the fireplace obviously.  Any help you experts can be would be greatly appreciated.

Hello TMAC75,


Thanks for your question and welcome to the community!


I would say that the best method to hang your poster would be to build at least a bottom/top frame, or a full frame first.


Once you build a frame behind the poster, you can give yourself the stability to hang it over the fireplace.


A very simple build would be to construct a 1x4 or 2x3 lightweight wood in a 12 foot width to prevent the poster from folding over.


You can install the wood frames using brick masonry screws into fireplace to ensure you have a base for your poster.


I would say this and then use mounting tape or a similar adhesive to fasten the poster to the frame.


Let me know if you have any further questions,
