DIY Crafts • Upcycling Map Wall Art

15 Minutes

Weekend is for the travellers and lucky are all those who have travelling plans for today. My love for travels and maps was expressed lately with a diy repurposing map to a heart, which I've made for my sister's wall gallery.
But, I couldn't leave our home without a similar map composition. It's the same concept in a different version. These are the few things I used:
○ frame
○ map
○ scissors
○ glue
○ decoupage glue
○ cardboard, or thin wood
○ I chose a small map that a local tourist service has given us for free in one of our trips.
○ I cut it in big letters to compose the word EXPLORE.
○ I was thinking about gluing them on white or black cardboard, but after seeing it, I decided to glue them on a thin wood surface that fitted perfectly in the white frame.
○ When I finished gluing the letters I covered all the surface with mat decoupage glue for an even result.
In less than fifteen minutes my new creation was ready for our wall gallery! I always loved strong and inspirational words from a kid so I like them to exist in my space not only in my thoughts, or my writings! So, my "EXPLORE" map composition took its new place on my wall gallery in front of my home office desk!
