Globes are not just for showing us the world on a small scale. They can now be used as a decorative accent in any room. Andrea from Harlow and Thistle shares with us her dollar store globe makeover for her son. Inspired by Anthropologie’s Wanderlust Globe she set to recreate one herself.
With some Krylon paint and acrylic paint, Andrea transformed the globe. How can you adapt this technique for your home? For holidays, you can make the globe into pumpkins, Snowman faces, or winter snowflakes. Do you live in a warm climate? Add palm trees, flowers, and other warm climate attributes. For children’s rooms. paint their favorite characters or use mod podge to get character images onto the globe.
Whatever your tastes may be, this can make a fun accent in any room. Andrea mentions that these globes are being used as the guest book at weddings. What a simply novel idea.
