DIY Repurposed Quote Globe

This was so much fun ! Definitely my top 5 crafts I have ever created. Lately I have been seeing these amazing unique glove with quotes everywhere ! And I was so smitten I had to make one ASAP ! And I did it for so cheap ! It came out exactly like I wanted it. I plan on making more in different colors and quotes…

This globe was given to me by a co-worker but I recently bought 2 more on E-bay for super cheap so look there if you can’t find one at Goodwill or another thrift store.

My house is a mix of everything I love from beaded pillows, dream catchers, pioneer woman bowls, candles, succulents and now a neat globe it added so much personality and people always look @ it and ask me about it. Next I want on with flowers and brown colors.

    I absolutely love this DIY! I recall seeing an old globe during a garage sale. Now I wish I bought it! Oh well, I am sure there will be plenty more of those around. Now I know what I can do with it! I think for my DIY globe I'll try to stick stamp or old passport pages of the places I have visited. This way it will really remind me of my travels...appropriately displayed using a globe! Thanks so much for the idea!

    Beautiful! Sadly I'm sure there's a lot of globes out there that no one uses for their intended purpose now that we have the internet. (Remember when there was one in every classroom?!) So it's great to repurpose them like this!

    Oh this is so fun! And actually very creative. Would've never thought to repurpose a globe (not that I have one) like this.

    You did a great job re-purposing that globe and the advent message on it is perfect. I wish I could do DIY projects but I'm not as handy...
