How to make this?

Step 1: Create a stencil / drawing on a Paper

Draw your world map on paper first. It’s easier to rectify your error on paper rather than on the wall.

Step 2: Transfer your design to the wall

Take wall measurements to understand the ratio of your drawing to the wall size. Mark 3 vertical points (Left, Center and Right) and 3 horizontal points (Top, Middle and Bottom) as reference points to start your drawing. You can add more points on the wall based on your measurements to get that perfect ratio.

Use pencil to draw your world map on the wall. Make sure to use light hand as dark pencil marks are a little difficult to erase.

Step 3: Start from one corner

Start sticking tape from one corner of your map. It becomes easier to move and stick the tape along the map design when you start from the corner.

Step 4: Cut the edges

After you start sticking tape on the wall, leave an inch of tape at the edges. It makes it easier to cut and gives your map the right shape.

Step 5: Run your fingers over the tape

As you continue sticking tape on the wall, run your fingers over the tape. This ensures the tape sticks well and does not come off.
