Map Covered Love Letters

I had seen these cute map covered letters at Cost Plus a few weeks ago and fell in love. They weren’t very expensive, but I knew I had all the tools at home to make them myself. These letters would be super cute hung on a wall, high on a shelf  or displayed on a table.

Here is what you need:

A map

Fabric ( I used off-white muslin)

Mod Podge

Cardboard letters

Tea bags

Step One: Steep your tea bags in warm water. While they are steeping lay out your map on a clean surface. I used a baking pan to keep things neat.   Rub your tea bag on the surface of the map, being careful not to rip the map. When you are done lay it out to dry.

Step Two: While your map dries, carefully cut out your fabric and Mod Podge it around the entire letter. Let your fabric dry.

Step Three: When your map is dry and weathered to your liking and your fabric is no longer tacky, cut out map squares and paste them to the top of your letters. Cut along the edges of your letter and give one last coat of Mod Podge. Let it dry and you are ready to display.

Fall Wedding Attire

I love weddings because I love dressing up. I won’t be dressed this fancy for the wedding coming up, but I’ve had my eye on this dress from ModCloth and have been eagerly waiting for it to become available. I need this outfit in my life, even if I have no place to wear it, I will wear it around the house and feel fancy. This will happen.

Pinterest Faves: Wedding Edition

When I got married Pinterest didn’t exist yet.  My dear friend Mindy is getting married in two weeks and all the wedding boards have feeling pretty smiley. I’m so excited to share with everyone the projects we’ve done for the wedding. It’s going to be beautiful!
