Maps not only speak to the Globe trotter but to the ocean soul as well. So here are 7 great map decoupage ideas that pay homage to the sea, from canvas art to dressers to letters and more!
Let's start with this great Map Canvas Art from Creative Juices Decor. Selina brushed on some glue to canvases and attached cut out map pieces, then put Mod Podge over the top. And she added character by aging the edges!
Kristin of Domestic Ease was given some old National Geographic maps and created a Map Decoupage Dresser with them. She applied a thin coat of Mod Podge, then positioned the paper. Great way to Make over a Dresser or any kind of Furniture Piece!
Decorative letters have become very trendy. Francine made hers with a paper mache letter bought at the craft store. Same decoupage drill -brush on glue or Mod Podge, adhere paper, then apply a coat of glue on top. For more details, click here!
I have a few DIY Lampshades, so I'm partial to this Map Decoupage Shade from Pretty Handy Girl.
And check out Barbara's Tray Makeover at DIY Home Staging Tips. Trick -iron the fold lines in the map flat!
Deb of Sage and Sepia transformed a few plain white magazine holders with map decoupage. After painting them blue, she glued old nautical charts on the front and inside back. They are now holding a collection of sailing magazines.
