Recently a friend of mine took a trip to Paris, and since she’s a crafter, it got me thinking about Parisian craft projects. There is so much design inspiration coming from the world’s most romantic city, I knew it would apply to DIY as well. I found 8 pretty projects to share, including these map letters that you can easily make with my decoupage medium of choice (Mod Podge!). Seeking more French DIY inspiration? Click through the jump!
