There's really no way to cure wanderlust. No matter how many amazing places you go, it's rare to come home from the experience never wanting to leave again. The more I see of this beautiful world, the more I want to see. I'm in a never-ending state of wanderlust, and there's little hope of satisfying my traveling desires any time soon, so here are five DIY map projects to help you see the world even when you're sitting in your own home.

You can find wooden monograms in every home goods store and on almost every DIY blog on the Internet. With this DIY Wooden Map Monogram you can easily  incorporate this trend and your wanderlust into your home. It would also make a great gift for your travel-loving friends.

Making a new lampshade can give an old light fixture new life. Try giving an old lamp a makeover with this DIY Map Lampshade so you can light up the world every day in your own home.

I really love vintage window DIYs for the way they brighten up a space, and this DIY Window to the World is perhaps the most literal way to see the world outside your window.

Make your own version of this DIY Slatted Wood Map Art for some statement-making wall art that will help you quench your wanderlust.

For a delicate touch of travel inspiration try this DIY Map Pennant Bunting. This project can be a unique detail to add to a space without being overwhelming.

Do you have wanderlust, Lovelies? Have you ever used a map in a DIY project?
