DIY Crafts: 20 Ways to Upcycle a GlobeUpcycle a globe with fun and incredible DIY crafts!

After the Reduce, Reuse, Redecorate: 50 DIY Map Projects for Your Home post, I had map fever! I wanted to cover everything in my home with maps, so I started by covering an old cigar box with a map. Now, I’ve shifted my DIY madness to globes! There’s something so beautiful about globes– their color, their history, their texture, etc. You can find old or vintage globes at thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets, and antique stores. You can simply decorate with your globe, or you can do an awesome DIY craft with it!

Here are 20 incredible DIY globe projects that I found across the web (warning: you might catch globe fever, too):

1. DIY painted globe

2. Sectioned painted globe

3. Add a globe to an average standing lamp

4. Update an old globe with thumb tacks

5. DIY two-toned chalkboard globe

6. Solid color chalkboard globe

7. Repurposed globe art

8. Recycled globe travel bank

9. Whimsical decoupaged globe

10. Half globe light fixture cover

11. Globe pendant light

12. DIY repurposed globe bowl

13. Build a globe clock

14. Paint quotes on a globe

15. Turn a globe into an unique wedding guest book

16. DIY globe night light
