Love makes the world go round...my painted globe

LOVE 

really does make the world go round.





I've been seeing painted globes on Pinterest lately and it got me thinking...hmmm...we have an unused globe just sitting out in our garage.

I printed out my letters on my Cricut machine and then stuck them on my freshly washed globe.

I covered the base with a combination of tape, plastic bags, and foil!

Then I set to work with a can of spray paint.








Thanks for coming by today!

Enjoy your day!

  1. Awesome! I picked up a globe on clearance but forgot about this idea! I have one like this pinned. The globe I came home with is black. Oh well. I'll keep my eyes open for another one!

  13. This is so cool! I've been on the lookout for globes for my son's room, and I'm thinking the next one I find may have to get this treatment. Gotta think of the right word for my little guy - maybe explore? Thanks for the great idea.
