DIY Gift

I made this for my best friends parents when they got married. It's simple, inexpensive, and thoughtful. Make it for a friend who's going to college out of state, a childhood friend who moved away, family members out of state, as a wedding gift, or anything else you can think of. All you need is 4 materials, wood, paint(optional), nails, and string. Either print out a outline of your preferred state and trace it onto the wood or free hand the outline directly onto the wood and start nailing and stringing away!
