Heart, Map Pictures

I saw these heart map pictures in a home design store and loved them but I wanted to personalise them to display places we had visited as a family.  They looked quite easy to make, so I decided I would have a go at them myself.
I had planned to make the heart mounts but found them in Wilkinson’s along with the white wooden frames, which were exactly what I was looking for.

heartpinI printed maps off the Internet; I chose the Caribbean and Italy with Sardinia and Sicily as these places hold happy family memories of holidays and our adventures together.

I am so pleased with the result and the fact that every time I look at them I think of family holidays. And they look great in my hall way. And do you know what? When we arrive home from holidays, the first thing I see when we open the front door is these lovely pictures. It really makes me smile and realise how lucky we are.

    These are such a great idea, Sarah.

    I might have to make some of these as a wedding present for my soon-to-be husband! 🙂

    LOVE IT!

    What a gorgeous idea Sarah!! In fact I’ve seen similar ones on NOTHS and they’re SO expensive!! This is such a fab way of creating a cheaper alternative — and they look just as fabulous. Well done!! 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up with #HomeEtc x

    I love personalising things so it means more, and it’s great to be inspired by something you see and then make it yourself! These look great! #HomeEtc
