DIY map pendants require next to zero skill to make. But your guests don’t have to know that. In fact, judging by how gorgeous these pendants are, your guests will think you are one crafty genius.

DIY map pendants are perfect for destination weddings. Simply find a map online of your wedding destination and use it to make keepsake pendants for your guests. These would also make brilliant gifts for your wedding attendants. (Cufflinks for the guys?)
