DIY Travel Map

When we were in San Diego, we went to a family event at the conference Dave was attending where many things were being given away. One of the things we got was a world map. It had been sitting in our bedroom ever since. At the same time, I had been thinking about making a map to mark all of the places we have traveled. I was excited when I realized I could use the map we already had!

I was under the impression that bulletin boards are expensive, but I found this one for only $10 at Target!

I used Mod Podge which we already had to attach the map to the board. I trimmed it to fit as well.

I got pins at Staples because I didn’t like the ones that Target had. Zachary helped me with inserting pins.

Hanging the map was another adventure. I knew we wanted it in the kitchen. I was tired of the way this wall looked.

The bulletin board came with instructions and a paper ruler to help with hanging.

I returned the photos to the wall surrounding the map. It looked a bit crooked though, so I had to adjust it!

The wall is much more pleasing now!

A few of the blogs that I follow do a really cool challenge called $10 at Target. The idea is to spend $10 and only $10 buying fun items at Target. The bulletin board was my $10 purchase!
