Vintage Map Bunting

For a couple of years I’ve told Matt about how I wanted to make our bedroom map and globe themed. I had some inexpensive, but current (dated) classroom maps hanging in our bedroom before we moved, but since moving we have done nothing style-wise to our bedroom. Knowing I’ve always wanted our bedroom to be maps, Matt surprised me with this beautiful, large map of the United States. This has finally encouraged and motivated us to start the ball rolling.

Tonight I made the above mini bunting garlands to hang across the top of the recess of our bay window. I used vintage maps from old school atlases, sometimes you can find them affordably on ebay. If you are interested in making some yourself, check out the tutorial of mine that I posted a few years ago.

And, I was just reminded by a customer, I put a little recycled paper garland in with all orders to my etsy shop :)
