Todays’ project: Decorating with Wonder Maps.
Our family is currently supporting different missionaries in far off lands. I wanted to be able to provide a visual of where they are serving for my kids. I did not want to just hang paper maps on the wall but have them blend in nicely with my decor. While picking up supplies at the craft store I decided to add an extra board for pray requests from our missionaries.
Materials Needed for Wonder Maps Wall Art:
- WonderMaps I printed out maps of China, Turkey, India and Delaware. Some might argue that Delaware is not a far off land, but I think our first mission field is our home.
- I purchased some 5X7 pieces of wood and an 8X10 piece of wood from the craft section.
- Silver craft paint
- Various Stickers
- Mod Podge CS11302 Original 16-Ounce Glue, Matte Finish
I painted the the 5X7 boards silver. Red and silver are the main colors in my kitchen.
Then I cropped the maps and mod podged them to the 5X7 wood frames.
I added some stickers for more visual appeal and then another layer of Mod Podge.
I painted the 8X10 wood frame with chalk board paint. This is the one I will use to write down current prayer requests. Then I hung on 4 boards on my kitchen wall.
What about you? How will you use maps this year?
