Since sharing the playroom the other day, I’ve had quite a few request asking how to make a map bunting. I’m happy to report it is easy and cheap. If your kids are home this week it is a fun little craft project for them!
What you’ll need:
– String or Twine – I like twine as it is fun and colorful
– Maps (an old atlas works well)
My kids love maps and I thought it would be a colorful and fun element to add to their playroom. At our “Take it or Leave it”(the Scituate Transfer Station) I found a fantastic atlas filled with beautiful maps.

First I cut out a template and folded the map page in half. Along the fold, I placed the template and traced out my triangle. I cut out all the edges except the folded one.
I lined my baker’s twine up inside the folded edge and applied glue stick on the inside of the triangle and pressed together. Then I repeated this until I had enough triangles for the length of my baker’s twine.
Here’s how the finished map bunting looks:
It is a super easy and super fun craft project! My boys love the map bunting!
