Every year for our wedding anniversary, I try to come up with a traditional anniversary gift-inspired DIY project for my husband and I to do together.  This year, I was at a complete and total loss.  The sixth wedding anniversary is the iron anniversary.  That one’s a little tricky, if you ask me!  Maybe we’ll do better next year with copper and wool (insert eyeroll here)! 

So instead of creating a new DIY project together, this year I opted for a really unique gift for our home. As you know, we’ve been working on a few home updates this summer. Last month, we finished giving the kitchen a farmhouse-inspired update and we’re currently in the midst of updating our bedroom.  So the timing was pretty perfect for this gift to arrive!


I’ve always been into astronomy, staring up at the night sky, and pointing out constellations.  So when Modern Map Art approached me to create a custom Star Map, I jumped at the chance!  I had actually been looking into getting one of these personalized maps for our home.  It’s a great way to commemorate a special date in your life, like a wedding anniversary!

We use astronomical software used by planetariums that generates the actual night sky at a particular time and place. It looks exactly what you would see with your eyes, binoculars, or a telescope. We use a database with hundreds of thousands of stars. With our software, you’ll be able to create a one-of-a-kind print that shows off a special moment in your life — when a child was born, when you said “I Do”, when you got engaged, or any other memorable time. We print on both paper and canvas depending on what you’d like to have on your wall. Give it a try! – Modern Map Art

It’s super easy to create your own personalized map, too!  Just click on the CUSTOM STAR MAP link.  That brings you to a form where you can choose everything from the type of map you want, the location and date, size, color, font, and even a personalized message.  Since I got a map of our wedding date, I thought “To the Moon & Back” was fitting!  You can even preview what your Star Map will look like as you customize it!  

I chose to make a 24 x 36″ poster.  Once my poster arrived, I got a nice frame for it.  When we’re done with our bedroom update, I hope to find a spot for it in that room.  For now, it doesn’t look too bad leaning against a wall in our dining room!  It’s definitely a great conversation piece and perfect gift for any of life’s special milestones and memories!  I love the way it turned out!  For more information visit the Modern Map Art website and start creating your very own, personalized Star Map!
