Poll: What should I make with this globe?

I've been looking for a cheap globe at garage sales/flea markets for awhile now, and I *finally* found one! Can you guess how much it was? Only $2, and I just happened to have exactly that much in my pocket. ;)

The only problem is that I haven't decided what I want to do with it, I have seen so many amazing ideas for recycling globes, so I just thought I'd share a few ideas here and see what you guys think I should do?

I like the idea of cutting it in half and using it as a bowl/centerpiece, this way you can still see the beautiful map.

I don't know what the original source for this amazing button covered globe is, but isn't it beautiful?
I however, do not have the patience or that many buttons to do this. ;)
This globe art is pretty neat.

I also like the idea of a chalkboard globe.
This globe is pretty.
These globe lamps are awesome, but I don't have the lights. : (
I love the butterflies on this globe.
So, what do you think? Do you have any other ideas?

  1. Awsome find!! For me i love the lamp and the bowl. i just like the map to much to covert it up. Can't wait to see what you will do. :)

    Bonne journée=Good day

    1. I do love the look of the map, so I might not cover it up. :)

  2. I made the lights with my's really easy. The light kits are inexpensive and I used a wire bracket to allow it to hang from the side of the wall near my reading area. Love the butterfly globe! Havent seen that one beore!!

    1. That's a great idea! I might have to get a light kit and try it. We'll see. :)

  3. Love the ideas ! will surely try it out :D
    Gr8 post. :D

  4. I love it!! like everything you suggest elsewhere!
    Here is a world that I decorated a few years ago

  5. I love that button globe!!! But if I were you I go with the globe bowl, that would be a fun piece to have on your table :)

    1. I think I might be leaning towards the globe bowl. I love it. I would just have to clear off a space on my table to make room for it. Ha!

  6. These are so cool! I think my favorite is the picture frame!

    1. I think it would be neat to do the picture frame with a globe, and use an adventure quote. Like "Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing." ;)

  7. LOVE the button globe! I saw one on pinterest somewhere that was covered in some kind of moss that only grew on the continents. It was so cool.

  8. so you could do the bowl globe with half of it and the art globe with the other half :)


I love your comments!
