6 Ways to Upcycle an Old Globe

Save the Earth: don't dump that old globe; instead, turn it into ingenius decor. Take a look at what you can do:

1. Spiff it up with cutouts.


Use it as a canvas for your latest collage. Cut out photos from old books and magazines to get a vintage look. Apply onto the globe with adhesive and once done, paint it over with clear sealer or varnish. Check out this sample.

2. Give it a total makeover.
Not into collage? Paint it over and design it as you wish. Take a look at these examples.
 
3. Turn it into a bowl.
Cut the globe in half and glue it on a cake stand or other suitable base. Perfect for potpourri, flowers, and ornaments. Get your inspiration from this globe bowl.
 
4. Turn it into a cool chalkboard.
Paint it black with chalk paint and place it on your desk. Scribble notes, quotes, and reminders on the surface of the Earth. See how it's done here.

5. Light it up.
