Check out this amazing DIY!
Anthropologie sells some seriously gorgeous hand-painted globes. Although absolutely stunning, they came with a pretty steep price tag. I’m sure the quality was top notch as most Anthropologie items are, however, being the DIYer that I am I wanted to create my own.
Here’s what I did.
I purchased a little globe (I have a little shelf I wanted to display this on). This one doubles as a pencil sharpener.
I did a little inspection on how the globe was created and found the paper could easily be removed.
I separated the pieces and gave them a couple coats of my favorite spray paints.
Ahhh, now we’re in business! Now to decorate.
Here’s the finished piece next to the piece Anthropologie made. I used my silhouette to create a sentiment and some of my favorite floral stamps for some foliage.
Helpful Hint: If you want to achieve crisp lettering use die-cuts or a gold paint pen with a steady hand!
