Joy To The World!

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…
