Letters

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.
