Capturing your travel memories

If you love travelling this one’s for you – a crafty way to capture all the holidays you’ve treated yourself to in a glance!

I bought a cheapy canvas and covered it in a shabby wallpaper to give it the effect of a wooden fence post.

I then sourced a cork map of the world, (all purchases via eBay!) it comes with one side covered in adhesive so I literally just stuck it onto the wallpaper. I thought the red and white parcel string would work well for this project and tied a tight knot around each aeroplane pin then pinned them into all the destinations we’d been to.

Next print out your fav picture from each holiday, something that represents all the shenanigans you got up to! Then use my trusty lil friend (who never ceases to amaze me – super glue) and stick everything in place (string and photos).

I’ve been wanting to make this project for a while now, and I’m very proud it’s finally complete and hanging in our lounge (husband probably not so much!)

This idea could be used though for other projects, there could be a country you just keep going back for more to, or a road trip around America. You needn’t buy the whole world map just the country/continent that you prefer 🙂

Happy crafting!
