Over the last couple years I have really enjoyed finding damaged yet inspiring objects and breathing new life into them. This altered globe is one of those projects.
Right now, globes are very popular – people are painting them with chalkboard, decorating their homes with them, making light fixtures from there — a few minutes on Pinterest will yield LOADS of globe ideas! Because of that, globes in good shape are difficult to find and even more difficult to find at a reasonable price. We'd likely not want to alter a globe we paid $75 for!
However, damaged globes are pretty easy to find and super affordable! I pick up most of my globes for altering at Target in the clearance section for $12 or less. Even the dollar stores have globes at times.
To create this globe takes a couple of hours… click here to see how.
Do you have a damaged item you could upcycle into gorgeous home decor? What would you create? Please share in the comments section!!

Totally awesome and inspiring!!!!
So clever and cute.
The link for directions is not working, is there any way I can find out exactly how you made this. I found me a globe at the thrift store last weekend and can’t wait to alter it.
