DIY Chalkboard Map


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
  • Scis­sors
  • Brush

Step One

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.


Step Two
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.


Step Three
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.
