DIY – Travel Wall

Hey! So this is kind of a DIY post, I just wanted to share a little project I’ve been working on in my office. It’s not finished yet, but I wanted to show what I’ve done so far.

The idea came to me randomly, I am a fan of scrapbooking, but it requires a lot of time and I get impatient. So I made it a little smaller, I thought why not make a little wall display of the places I’ve been to.

I printed a bunch of maps of the countries I’ve been to, and a bunch of photos from all the places. I made the photos small, so that I could collage them around the maps. Then, I also got some themed cardboard paper, and some sticky notes.

The next step was cutting everything out, which I always enjoy for some unknown reason. Then I chose a themed paper for each country. I stuck the map in the middle, and all around I stuck photos from my time there. I dotted the cities I’d been too, but realized you couldn’t see it from a distance. So I used the sticky notes to write the city name clearer.

Here’s how it looks so far.

It turned out pretty good! I had no image in my head at first of what the end product would be like. I want to do more on it. I’m not sure what though. I don’t have much memorabilia from my time overseas. All my Peru ones are in a prior scrapbook, and while I do have some tickets, and other things left from trips, I feel like it would get too messy. I don’t know, it’s still a work in progress, but I like having it up in the office.

Any ideas on ways I could extend my little travel wall?

Since this post is still really popular I thought I would include an update of my travel wall. I have since included a scratch map, and used that as the centre of my travel wall. As I do more on it, I’ll be sure to update this post again!
