What You Need
- Large chalkboard — I bought a 33 x 27 inch wooden board and painted it with chalkboard paint
- Printable U.S. map (download here)
- 12 sheets of 8.5 in. by 11 in. old maps
- Modge Podge
Print out the USA map printable. Match up the letters to help you lay your map out. Be sure to start by putting your map out on large surface area.
Take one sheet at a time and layer it on top of a 8.5″ x 11″ piece of map. Cut out the map and return it to it’s spot. It is easy to turn this part into a giant jigsaw puzzle, so just try to stay organized.
After cutting out your map, pick each piece up, one at a time, and brush the back of each cut map with modge podge. Glue the map onto your chalkboard. Continue around until you have glued on every piece.

I love plants, and lot’s of them! And this is such an easy way to show them of (and it’s cheap and takes up no space what so ever…) I really want one of these in my kitchen so I can put all of my herbs in the pots… (I‘m in a basil phase right now.. I put in in/on everything)
