DIY Chalkboard Globe!
I found several globes at Value Village one time.
I need to make another visit.
I love globes.
They are a piece of art all on their own. But when you find a really good deal on one, sometimes it’s fun to add a little creativity to that round little map.
You may have seen my glittered holiday globes… but have you seen my DIY chalkboard globe?
Your eyes do not deceive you… that is a CHALKBOARD PAINTED GLOBE!
For your DIY chalkboard globe you will need:
- a thrifted globe
- chalkboard paint (I opted for schoolhouse green!)
- small paint brush or small paint roller
I used 4 coats of chalkboard paint. This globe has a raised surface (silly mountains!), but that’s not a problem. Now character resides where mountains once ruled…
Follow the directions on the can to know how to make sure your surface is ready for chalk. It takes a number of days if you are not a Rushy Rusherson. I may or may not have pushed the limits a little.
This is what I do.
Once your surface is ready… have fun!
Peace on EARTH?
I’m so hilarious.
