This world map vinyl art project is a DIY way to create your own luxurious looking wall decor. This is a sponsored post.
I love the metallic wall art that I see at home decor stores, but the prices can be a bit shocking! I used polished metal vinyl by StyleTechCraft to make my own budget version of high end wall decor. Pictures just don’t do this metallic vinyl justice! The color is absolutely stunning and perfect for crafting home decor.
Supplies Used to Make World Map Vinyl Wall Art
- Polished Metal Vinyl by StyleTechCraft (I used copper and gold tones)
- White Canvas
- Transfer Paper
- Silhouette Cutting Machine
I found a map that I liked online and imported it to my Silhouette Cameo. I traced it to create my own cut file. Since this design is so intricate and has multiple small parts (so many tiny islands!) I decided to transfer the entire sheet to the transfer paper. Then I worked from the back to weed the vinyl. This made it a little easier to take away the excess without losing all the small islands, which stayed on the transfer paper.
After I had weeded the vinyl, I transferred it to an 8×10 canvas. I was repurposing an old canvas, so I had to paint it white. If you start with a new canvas then you don’t have to paint anything!
I chose a font and designed the text for the piece. You could change the text to names, dates, or a phrase that is meaningful to you. Cut and weed the text. I used a gold colored polished metal vinyl for the text, so it would contrast a bit from the world map.
Transfer the text to the canvas.
Again, photos just don’t do this gorgeous polished metal vinyl justice! The shine and color is incredible. This piece looks like something I purchased in a home decor store, and not like a DIY at all! I hope you’ll try this vinyl out for yourself so you can see how beautiful it is. Have fun crafting and creating with vinyl!
