DIY Canvas Map

DIY Canvas Map:

YES.Lay a world map over 3 canvas (foam core would be cheaper), cut into 3 pieces. Coat each canvas with Mod Podge and wrap the maps around them like presents. Let dry and hang on the wall about 2" away from each other. Then add pins to all the places you've been.

What you'll need:
- 3 Canvas
- a map (big enough to cover all three canvas)
- Spray Adhesive (Mod Podge if necessary)
- Pins (optional)

How to do it:

1. Lay the map over the 3 canvases and cut it into 3 pieces. You may also want to cut off the ugly border if you so choose.


2. Spray the canvas with spray adhesive and smooth the map over it evenly. Wrap the sides like a present, using spray adhesive to seal them. *I used Mod Podge in my project and I don’t recommend it. It made the map bubble and warp from the liquid. I used spray adhesive on a recent project and it works way better with no warping or bleeding through.
3. Let dry and hang on the wall with about 2″ of space in between each piece. Use the sewing pins to mark where you and your family have traveled.
