Map & Places Art

I've had "DIY Art Project" on my list for-ev-er!  Here are a few ideas that I have in my inspiration collection that use maps and places...

I would love to have a whole wall of these for each place that I've been, and of course add to it over the years!

This is a great project, and I do love the look, but I'm note sure where I'd put it.  It would be cool in an industrial type work space, for a company that did business world wide, but can't see it in my home - Although it is really cool!

I'd love to frame a world map, and embroider a heart around where Adam and I were born.  It would be kind of like this as I was born in Toronto and Adam was born in England, and yes, I would add the connecting line - Too cute!
This would be a great project to fill a small area, or add into a gallery wall showcasing all the places I've been!

So many options, and so little time.  Do you have any map or places type art in your home?

  1. Love these Staci! I think I have most of them pinned on Pinterest too. Such great inspiration for a little craft project!

  2. Just last week I framed eight atlas pages for my boyfriend's birthday present! Back in 2008, he and I took a road trip from Dallas, TX to Wilmington, NC. We mapped out our planned route in orange highlighter and our actual route in pink. Three years later, I had the maps matted and framed. Of course, it turned out to be huge- 60" x 44"- but it's a great, sentimental addition to his living room.
