Pimp That Globe

Today’s post is inspired by these beautiful collage globes by Artist, Wendy Gold.

Aren’t they just to die for?  The one shown below can be personalized to showcase your very own family tree.  Super cool.

Other people are doing some pretty awesome stuff with globes too … things you can even do yourself.  Here are a few of my favorite DIY globe projects:

This chalkboard globe made by Halligan Norris for Design*Sponge looks amazing and is fairly simple to make.

This global bowl made by Cathe of JustSomethingIMade was made by sawing a globe in half, and lining with old book pages and some glitter – pretty neat idea [and it makes one for you, one to give away!].

Get the tutorial for this cool Globe Pendant lamp from Project Create a Home.  I think I would add some metal hardware on the top, but otherwise genius.

    I don’t think it’s nice to use my antique globe as a collage but the pendant lamp is really great, nice idea!

    Hey, Jim:
    I wouldn’t be using antique globes either, but I’ve seen a few vintage globes at thrift shops for fairly cheap that would be great for some of these projects!
