Love this idea! Lay a world map over 3 canvas, cut into 3 pieces. Coat each canvas with Mod Podge and wrap the maps around them. Let dry and hang on the wall. Then add pins to all the places you've been. Would love to do this with a map of the USA.
DIY Wall Art: Chevron is huge right now. Its also a pattern that can easily be created on a canvas. Measure, mark it off with tape and then paint in your favorite colors. Instant and inexpensive wall art to match your decor.
