Map of the World on a Wall

I'm just a groovy girl making groovy instructables ;).

Intro: Map of the World on a Wall

It is really easy to make this wall mural, and it looks like a million dollars when it is done!

Materials:

  • Paint Pen (To outline the map)
  • Projector
  • Projector Sheets
  • Image of a Map
  1. Choose an image online that you would like to use. I recommend using a map that is very basic, so you don't have many lines and curves to trace.
  2. Print out the map you have chosen on the projector sheet.
  3. Turn on your projector, and place the map on the clear face of it. Project the image on the wall you want it to be on.
  4. Get your paint pen and trace over the outline of the continents. You may want to go over it 2 or 3 times so that it is fully painted.
  5. Turn off your projector, and then you're done! Let the paint dry and admire your creation.

    Cool! My son wants a New York skyline on his walls. I was planning on doing it in vinyl decals cut out on my Silhouette Cameo (plotter). I never thought to use a projector, but I'm sure it would save me a ton of time and money to do it that way. Thanks!

    This looks like a great project for the walls of my homeschool room. Now to just find a projector ... :)

    Pretty simple idea, but very clever. I like the simple finished look. I guess if someone were inclined, they could very easily add countries, states, names and so on. Nice work!
