Map of the World: String Art ed.

Maybe you remember my obsession months ago with making string art?

A Christmas/birthday gift for my sister-in-law!

 

Here’s how it all went down:

1. Pre-made board from Lowe’s.

2. Minwax wood stain (Early American 230).

3. A husband who can illustrate the world (thank you!!!)

4. Tap shallow holes around map to make a path.

5. Remove map, add nails.

6. Wrap string for ages, tie, snip, tuck in extra string, done!

 

Merry Christmas, all!!

    1. Great question! My husband is a graphic designer and illustrated the map for me. You could find any similar map by Googling and printing it at a higher percent (e.g., 150% instead of 100%).
