DIY: Corkboard World Map

Calling all Wanderlust lovers! This DIY project is perfect for you to keep track of all the places you’ve been to and for all the places  you plan on visiting. It’s just the right decor for any travel fiend’s room. This DIY is totally affordable, which means you’ll have some money to save for your next trip ;)

Materials:
-Cork
-Wall safe adhesive (double sided tape, stickies)
-Pins
-Scrap booking paper (optional for flags)
Tools:
-Cutting board
-X-acto knife
-Map image (Give this one a try!)
-Wire cutters (optional for flags)
-Glue gun (optional for flags)
-Sharpie (optional for flags)

1. Print your map
You may or may not want to adjust the size of your map (blockposters.com is a great website to enlarge it).

2. Tape the printed copy of your map to a piece of cork
Make sure that your cork is large enough to fit the entire map. If you don’t have a large enough piece, try gluing pieces together before matching the paper up to the cork.

3. Take your x-acto knife and start cutting out that map of yours!
If some continents are on different papers make sure it is connected on the cork board so that when you cut it, its one whole continent (when you cut, try to keep track of which little island belongs where — unfortunately, it’s easy to get those little guys mixed up or lost).

4. Place double sided tape on the back side of your finished pieces
It might be easier for you to lay out the continents in the right order before putting the double sided tape on. When you’re ready to tape the map on the wall you’ll have it in the right order (:

5. Tape your map onto your wall

6. Create your flags:
– Grab some scrap paper and cut it into small strips
– Take some pins and cut em with the wire cutter to the length you’d personally like
– Get a long strip of scrap and place the pin in the middle. Fold the strip in half and hot glue gun it together
Your pins are all ready for you to write all the places you been and place it in the right spot on the map. You can even get creative by color coding your scraps with the different places you been and places you want to go!

Get creative with this DIY and make this map your own :)
