DIY Martha's Vineyard Ornaments

I made the Martha’s Vineyard ornament for our Honeymoon spot. Lake Winnipesaukee for one of our favorite vacation spots. And the New York City ornament for obvious reasons.

DIY Map Ornaments

  • Glass ornaments
  • Paint Brush
  • Mod Podge
  • Maps from your favorite places
  1. Look at your maps and identify areas that you want to cut out.
  2. Cut out circular pieces of the areas you want on your ornament.
  3. Brush Mod Podge on the back of a piece you cut out.
  4. Place on the glass ornament and press down so it adheres to the ornament. Some pieces will crinkle and fold over – this is ok. The ornament is a sphere, this will happen.
  5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 until your ornament is complete.
  6. Once the ornament is dry, apply a thin coat of mod podge on the outside of the ornament to seal it up.
