Globes add so much to a display. We have used them several times in the 7gypsies booth. This one was a globe that the base was broken.
The broken base was removed which left holes in the top and bottom. I used large vintage buttons to cover the holes, attached to jute to hang and applied a large vinyl "7". You could do a favorite quote, scripture or your family name.
I have admired what others have done with globes and thought you might enjoy them also.
This artist, Wendy Gold used vintage globes and recycled materials to decoupage and decorate.
This one to announce a marriage date.
This one showing the family tree. Check out more of her work at Art on Globes, here.

Love this wall clock from Home Made Simple. You could do a series of clocks in a group that represent different time zones and label each with the place it represents.
A great tutorial decoupaging your globe with fabric at Luzia Pimpinella

This from The Well Appointed House, but you could DIY with chalkboard paint.
Remember the globe that I mentioned above that we displayed in the 7g booth. I'm sorry to say it didn't make it back to my house in one piece. I now have two halves.....I'm thinking of doing this with them!
Have a great weekend and see you next week when our good friend Sande Krieger will be back to do another post. Can't wait to see what she has for us!!
