I love maps! I created this quick and easy wall decor using supplies I already had on hand!
Map Wall Decor
Stretched canvas (I used 2)
Maps to cut up (I used an old Road Atlas – yard sale $1)
An extra or old Mat
Hot glue gun
Step 1: Cut the burlap to leave about a 1″ border on all sides so the canvas shows.
Step 2: Glue the burlap to the canvas using a hot glue gun
You can pull the strings around the edges to have the burlap fray a bit.
Step 3: Create a template of the inside of the frame by tracing the shape on a scratch piece of paper.
Cut out the template leaving a 1/4″ – 1/2″ border around it. Trace around the template onto the section of the map you would like to frame. Cut. (don’t you love my Halloween candy corn pencil? HA!)
Turn your mat over and place the map piece on the backside wrong side up. Use clear tape to secure the map into place.
Step 4: Apply hot glue to the back of the mat and center it over the burlap and into place. You are DONE!
We framed maps of the area we just moved from a year ago and also the area in which we now live.
I will be linking up here through out the week!
