If you’re looking for an easy way to decorate your home – or you’re just bursting with state pride – make art with little more than a paint pen and a map! This easy project is quick, sentimental and cost-effective!

Stain or paint your 1'X1' square of wood. Let it completely dry.
Cut your printed map along the state’s border with scissors or an X-Acto knife. This step can get tricky, so take your time!
Tape the map to the wood. Then trace it with a pencil – again, be patient and detailed!
Remove the map. Then trace the pencil line with a paint pen or a white-out pen. Optional: Add a heart over your city or write some inspirational words inside the state.
Color in the state with your paint pen or white-out pen (if you added a heart or lettering in step #4, carefully color around them).
Let it dry and hang it on your wall!
