map art

Hello little sunshines!

As I said before in my SOWA post- we made a lovely craft out of Liz’s favorite things- maps! It is adorable and I am obsessed with it. Here is a little step by step for you to create your own! and we did it all for under $25!

You’ll need:

a map- we used a vintage map of the middle east we got at SOWA
Canvases- If i were to do it again, I’d say you should use six- we did four and it still looks good
PVA- Id advise PVA because it doesn’t crinkle the paper as much as glue- but glue would work.
Scissors

STEP ONE:
Lay out your map and decide where you want to put the canvases
(this is another map we got of europe!)

STEP TWO:
Get out your canvases

STEP THREE:
glue down and cut the canvases

STEP FOUR:
Put a little extra PVA on the side and smooth down your edges

TADA! THEN HANG EM UP! 😀

I’ll get a picture of them once they are up n the wall so you can see it all nice and hanging.
Now you have some beautiful handmade map art- and its so easy- even liz could do it!
