DIY Map Letters Tutorial
- wood letters
- modge podge

- newspaper or craft paper
Step 1 Place newspaper or craft paper over your work surface.
Step 2 Lay one letter on top of your map. With a pen, trace around the letter.
Step 3 Cut around the letter 1 inch out from the traced line.
Step 4 Using your foam brush, cover the top and sides of the letter with modge podge.
Step 5 Carefully place the cut out map on the letter. Lightly press over top of the map with your hand, and smooth out any wrinkles. Fold the map edges over the letter. Brush more modge podge on both sides and edges until letter is completely covered and map is secure.
