One of my favorite things to do with my girls is make crafts. My kids are actually more artistic than I am, but I found a great idea from an artist on etsy that gave me an idea for a project that even I can do with my children. First, my inspiration came from
Though I would LOVE a necklace just like the one in the photo (hint, hint) as a gift, I took the idea as inspiration and went to my local hobby store for supplies. I bought a simple, small wooden hoop that is used for embroidery and some pretty ribbon that matched the colors in the map. We then cut the map to fit the hoop, attached the ribbon to the top of the hoop and voila, an instant souvenir that can either hang on the wall or on a Christmas tree.
