Pinterest strikes again…also, have you noticed that instead of taking days, all of my projects lately have been an hour (or five minutes)? Hmmm, lazy much?

So I fell in love with this idea on Pinterest, and decided to make it my own.
I got myself this map…

Then I didn’t want to spend any money on stencils, just in case this didn’t work out. I didn’t want that guilt on my shoulders, you know? So I printed off some letters in a font I liked, and cut the letters out with an exacto knife.

I taped my cut out letter shapes onto the map, stencil style, and started painting…

Then I stretched it onto a canvas, and hung it up. Then it was too shiny, so I took it down. I spread a thin coat of matte mod podge on top, and then I had the love for it.

I hung it up, and voila! Joy to the World…
