DIY Travel Decor: How to make a Pinboard world map

Necessary material

  • craft, or foam cardboard, available at Dollar Store ($ 1.50 / panel) and Walmart (the thickness of the cardboard does not matter because the canvas is thick enough that the pins do not touch the wall on which you will hang your own world map
  • scissors or Exacto
  • measuring tape
  • rule
  • pencil

Step 1: Get canvas measurements of your world map

Turn the canvas of the world map upside down and measure the height inside the canvas fairly, because the craft frame you insert should be tight enough to hold it well without having to glue it.

Measure the width between the edge of the canvas and the piece of wood that crosses the middle of the canvas.

The wooden piece of wood is installed in the middle to solidify the canvas so that it lasts a long time. If your canvas does not have this middle piece of wood, do not worry: this means that its size and / or design do not require it to ensure its stability.

You will insert 3 pieces of foam, like a very easy to install puzzle.

Step 2: Draw the measurements made on your foam board

From the measurements made in the previous point, draw the lines that you will cut on your foam board.

Step 3: Cut your foam board to the right size with scissors or Exacto.

Be careful where you cut it: you will not want to cut your beautiful dining table!

It may be a little messy when you cut your foam, but do not worry, it is easy to clean ????

Step 4: Place the cut foam sheets one after the other on the back of the world map canvas.

Here you go! Everything is over!

Now you know how to make a world map to pin all your travels! All you have to do is hang it on the wall with a nail or command strips (which avoid making holes in the walls).

Then you will add pins over time to immortalize your family trips!

You can pin the countries you have visited as a family, as a couple, solo and in those you want to visit soon!
