6 of 21 DIY Projects: Push Pin Map

iPhone 9.4.2012 151Kevin had the idea a few months ago to make a map with pins to show where we had been! I was quick to jump on the idea and create something!

I used:

  • a map
  • push pins
  • spray adhesive
  • foam board (a little smaller than the size of the map)


First I put down the map how I wanted it and (after measuring) made marks by the corners to know where to place the foam board. I then sprayed the blank side of the map and set the foam board into place. I then wrapped the sides like a Christmas present…
