Eleven DIY Globe Ideas

Have the world in your hands but it needs an update? Don't worry, these crafty ladies have you covered!

If you follow me on Pinterest, then you may already know that I have a soft spot in my heart for globes of all kinds. I think obsessed might be a more accurate description. So, last weekend when I went thrifting and found a vintage globe for $15, it's needless to say that it immediately found a cozy spot in my cart. 

I shared my little treasure on Instagram right away:

Now, let's be real here. This little guy is not attractive in his current shape. He was bent a skad to the right - little pounding with a hammer fixed that. He was ridiculously loose - nothing some screw tightening couldn't mend. He was gross and grimy - hallelujah to lysol wipes! He is outdated and no longer accurate... how in the world do I fix that?! And that is where I'm hoping that a little creativity and elbow grease will come in handy.

Even after all of those incredible ideas (or, possibly because of them), I still remain divided as to which direction I'm going to go. I'm thinking that I might do white and gold with some decoupage... What do you think? If you've seen any other awesome DIYs, please share!
