DIY Travel Map

Y’all know by now that Mr. Lovely and I are major travel junkies. Last year, he made me this for Valentine’s Day, and I just about died! We wanted to do a more detailed one that we could add to as we went along, so here we go! Grab your materials:

  • map of your choice (We went with just the U.S., and found our map at a stationery store.)
  • corkboard
  • spray glue
  • pins
  • spray paint in various colors

Cut your corkboard to the size of your map and spray glue the map to the cork.

Stick a batch of pins into a scrap of cork and spray paint. We decided on three colors — white for places he’s been, yellow for places I’ve been, and gold for places we’ve been together.

Let your pins and map dry, and start sticking! We had some pretty intense tour schedules when we were working on the road, so it took us some time to figure out. But we eventually got it! I think we’re planning on hanging ours on a bedroom wall for travel inspiration. I’ve just got 7 states to go until I’ve seen all 50! xoxo
