DIY Travel Decor: How to Make a Pinboard World Map

Necessary material

  • Craft Board or Foam Board, available from the Dollar Store ($ 1.50 / panel) and Walmart (the thickness of the board doesn’t matter as the canvas is so thick that the pegs won’t touch the wall you’re hanging on Your Pinboard world map
  • Scissors or exacto
  • Tape measure
  • rule
  • pencil

Step 1: measure the inside of your world map

Flip the world map canvas over and measure the height within the canvas appropriately as the craft panel you are inserting needs to be strong enough to hold well without having to glue it.

Measure the width between the edge of the canvas and the piece of wood that goes through the center of the canvas.

The piece of wood made of wood was installed in the middle to solidify the canvas so that it would last for a very long time. If your canvas doesn’t have this medium piece of wood, don’t worry: it means that due to its size and / or design, it isn’t necessary to ensure its strength.

You will put in 3 pieces of foam board, like a puzzle, which is very easy to install.

Step 2: Draw the measurements on your foam board

From the measurements at the previous point, draw the lines that will be cut on your foam board.

Step 3: Cut your foam board to size with scissors or an Exacto.

Be careful where you cut it: you won’t want to cut your beautiful dining table!

It can get a little messy when you cut your foam board, but don’t worry, it’s easy to clean ????

Step 4: One by one, paste your cut foam sheets onto the back of your world map canvas.

Here we go! It’s all ready!

Now you know how to create a whiteboard world map to pin all of your travels down! All you have to do is hang it on the wall with a nail or command strip (this will avoid holes in the walls).

Then over time, you’ll add pins to immortalize your family travels!

You can pin the countries you’ve visited as a family, as a couple, alone and in the near future!
