Welcome to another Craft Roundup. Today, I am showing pictures and tutorials of some of my favorite map crafts. Maps make excellent wall art, they look beautiful decoupaged on furniture, and you can also use them to make jewelry. Maps come in many different colors and sizes, so there is no limit to the projects you can create.

I hope everyone enjoyed viewing these projects as much as I enjoyed making them. Feel free to like this post, share it, or add your comments below.
This craft project was a fun way to celebrate and remember some of the places I have lived and traveled.
I used the following supplies:
- Glass gems
- Mod Podge (gloss)
- X-Acto Knife
I began by cutting out the cities I visited over the years from old road and maps I printed from websites.
Next, I spread a layer of Mod Podge on the back of the glass stones and on the front of the map pieces. Then I pressed them together and let them dry for a couple of hours.
Finally, I trimmed the paper with the X-Acto knife.
I placed the map stones in a large glass vase that is sitting on bookshelf in my bedroom. I think these stones are an awesome reminder of where I’ve been. It’s nice to have another representation of my travels to go along with photos and souvenirs.
Here are some other projects I completed using maps:
