Pretty Perfect Printables

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

If you watch Emily Henderson on HGTV she has amazing ideas for your home. Her holiday special aired the Saturday after Thanksgiving [9pm "Secrets from a Stylist"] and I was obsessed with one of her projects.

I am a map lover. If you've been to my apartment you clearly know this. I have a giant world map (6ft x 3ft) spread across my wall outside of the kitchen (thrift store find, by the way.) 

During her holiday special Emily took a giant world map and stenciled Christmas song lyrics onto the front that have to do with earth, or the world:

During the stenciling:

Another phrase you could try would be something like "PEACE ON EARTH." If you like this project but don't have a giant map to spare, graphic designer/blogger Angela Hardison took this project down a knotch. Angela designed this in a smaller version that you can print & frame for your walls! 
They look like this:
P.S. In a really great frame, these could make awesome gifts for Christmas.
