I'm really into Maps right now and wanted some cool art for my teenager's bedroom. Plus I'm cheap and a paper map is about $5. I got the actual map at Target in the dorm section.
Then I took a piece of really thin plywood that was $12 for a big sheet and cut it the same size as the map.
Mod Podged the map onto the plywood. Let it dry and then attached some vinyl letters from my silhouette. Then I mod podged over the letters and top of the map.
My husband made the frame out of a piece of wood that was sitting in the scrap pile.
Love how it turned out. The map is hanging above his bed but I am thinking it might be too tall for that spot so it may end up getting moved into the playroom.
