City Map Art DIY

One piece of decor in my home that I love is 
this city map I made of a city that is special to me. 
You know those phone books you get in the mail that you don't know what to do with because you just use your phone to find phone numbers? Dig through them real quick... they might have city maps! 

I found a city map in a book that came in the mail, and used it to cut out a map. 
I just put card stock under the map, and using an Xacto knife and cutting mat, I cut along all the streets.

Then I put it on some craft paper in a thrift store frame, and ta-da! 

Super cheap and special decoration... my favorite!


  1. That actually looks quite tricky, but worth it, I'd love to have one like this of London and Austin... the two cities I am most often in. This is a great idea, thank you so much!
    Have a great week friend!

  2. It was pretty time consuming, but I liked that I could just put it on an old magazine, and sit on the couch with the kids. I accomplished a lot of it while visiting w Mr. Liv; absentmindedly cutting away. :)

  3. This is so pretty! Love your blog, its full of so many wonderful ideas. x

  4. How sweet of you Caroline! I hope you are inspired by my little projects! :)


Leave a lil love, it makes my day! :)
