DIY Map Picture Frame

We are big time traveling and road triping people, even if its just a day trip. We have tons of pictures just only one issue… they are all in the computer and not on print. So I decided to go into my “future craft supplies” box to dig out some picture frames I found 75% off last year on Clearance and get some printed. Since the frames are brown and everything else in the office is black I decided to cover them with a old map I had in my car {hope I don’t get lost now without my phone haha} so they would “go” with the decor.


  • Frame
  • Mod Podge
  • Brush
  • Scissors
  • Map

First I cut out rectangles and squares out of the map in all different sizes

Next using Mod Podge I adhered the map pieces to the frame in a collage style until it was completely covered. Once dry I added another coat over top then trimmed off any extra pieces hanging around on the back.

Simple right? Although it took a little time to do it was overall super simple and now ready to display all our travels. Another perk was it was totally free to me since I had all the supplies on hand and a great upcycled project!
