Map Pendants

Introduction: Map Pendants

The idea for these came from "buntings" where various pendants are hung from a ribbon or cord. These triangle pendants were made from an old road atlas and hang independently from the suspended ceiling frame by means of homemade support clips.

Supplies

Corrugated cardboard

Maps / Atlas

Wire (for clips)

Tape

pen

utility knife

straight edge

pliers, wire cutter (for clips)

scissors

glue stick

Step 1: Templates

If you are making more than one pendant, it makes sense to make a template for the map part and one for the cardboard. The paper template is 1/2" larger all around to allow for gluing.

Step 2: Glue All

Step 3: Clips Can Be Made 3 or More at a Time

Make a sample that fits your needs then use it to make all the other clips the same.

Step 4: Attach Clips

Push the clip into the pendant and tape to hold in place.

Step 5: Hang Them!

I used a wall full to fill an angled wall in an A-frame.
