DIY MAPPED FRAME
This is a little DIY I’ve been dying to make! Ever since I found out we were going to Ireland, I’ve had this planned! It’s such an easy DIY, it requires minimal supplies and takes no time at all. Just the way I like it! You can make it as personal as you would like! Are you ready for some fun?!
What you need
- A map – We found a used map at a book store while in Ireland, it has a lot of the cities we stayed in or passed through!
- A frame – I went to Target and found my frame on sale for $8!
- Some Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- Picture – I decided to put a picture of my husband in I while we were in Ireland. I’m sure you can imagine, there were thousands to choose from! The sad thing is, there aren’t a lot of pictures of us around the house so this seemed appropriate!
What to do
Disassemble your picture frame so you can retrieve the mat board. Lay out your map on a flat surface and place the mat board on top. Trace the outline with a pencil (dark enough so you can see). Take your scissors and carefully cut out the outline. Once you have your piece, take your mod podge and put a nice layer on top of your mat board. With as much precision as possible, carefully lay your map onto the mat board. Take another layer of your mod podge and gently put another coat on top. Allow to completely dry. Once the mat board is dry, place back into your frame. Place your picture securely behind the mat board and return the back onto the frame! That’s it! Now hang it somewhere so you can be reminded of your special trip!
The thing is, you can use this for just about anything: your honeymoon destination, the city your baby was born (or adopted from), your favorite place you’ve visited and so much more! It would make a great gift and serve as a great memory for years to come!
