Step 1: Search and Cut Logs/Branches
Search some branches or small logs. I have chosen for 3 different sizes. It depends on how much your map will be how much brenches you need.
When you have found those it is time for cutting. Cut them in different sizes and use your creativity!
I have used a electric saw to speed up the proces but you could also use a handsaw. Watch your fingers.
Collect them all in a box/bucket and take them to a table.
Step 2: Choose a Background
For my world map I have chose some oak floor panels. But you could glue them on anything.
Step 3: Glue Them to Your Background!
Search for an world map. I have Googled an simple world drawing and found a good looking picture.
Take a wood glue and glue them in the shape you like. Don't use to much glue a small amount is enough.?
Step 4: Glue the World and Let It Dry
Now you can glue all the pieces in to a world. Let the glue dry and you are finished. You could hang it at your wall or use it as decoration.
