Recycled Map Art

Years ago I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Island of Capri and recently I rediscovered maps and mementos from that trip. One particular map was so lovely that I knew I need to display it.
So I decided to use a little cardboard and MDF that was part of some packaging to use to create my art.
I started with my Map of Capri and a few other basic road maps.
Next I cut the two long pieces of MDF off and use the center piece for my large map and the two smaller pieces for my road maps. Added a little Mod Podge and basic picture hangers and my art was finished.
They look great on my bedroom wall and the colors are just perfect.
The remind me that there are plenty of places to see and numerous more to visit.
And they make a interesting back drop for my travel inspired jewelry.


  1. Really like the way you combined and displayed these maps together!
    It's always great to have new travel dreams and goals!

  2. Hi Janet: I'm Connie at, your new GFC friend. I would love it if you stop by and be mine, too.
    That's such a good idea. That way can always remember you trip. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a great way to combine decorating with good memories.
    You hit the jackpot with this project, Janet.

  4. How wonderful Janet! What a great way to remember a fun trip and decorate at the same time!
