Map Heart Art

After posting my top 5 design loves and hates, I fell in love all over again with sweet little map hearts. So like any self-respecting DIYer, I ran straight for my local Hobby Lobby to get things started. Here’s how to do your own map art for only $3 each.
Supplies:
• Small canvas (I snagged two little square ones at 30% off for less than $3 each)
• Mod Podge
• Map (either a road map you have on hand, or a printout from your computer)

Step 1 – Gather your supplies, and make your heart template

I used a scrap piece of paper to freehand sketch my heart shape to fit my canvas size. You could also download some adorable dingbat fonts and print out a large heart shape.

Step 2 – Cut your template, trace it onto your map and cut your map hearts

Super easy. I like that my hearts aren’t symmetrical. Oh, and make sure you undercut it a little so you don’t show any pen marks.

Step 3 – Attach hearts to canvas with Mod Podge

I heart me some ‘podge. I used a real road map, so it was a bit crinkly and folded, which gives the art a little character. You can crinkle up yours a little too if you’re using a printout. Mod Podge only takes about 5-10 minutes to dry, too, so this is a quickie project!

Step 4 – Hang and Enjoy!

I hung these up in our nursery (reveal coming soon, I promise!) for a little dose of where-baby-comes-from. Here’s my birthplace:

Axe 'Em Jacks! for Nacogdoches

And the baby and Husbane will share their place of birth, and hospital too!

They’re really cute, and make me smile when I walk into the room. The best part is that they’ll fit in any room, so if we decide to redecorate Charlie’s room in the future we don’t have to get rid of our sweet little hearts. They’ll just find a new room to live in!
