Globe Bowl and Pretty Pins

Last Summer I picked up an old, out-dated globe at the thrift store. You’d be surprised how difficult it was to saw it in half. Well, it sat in my craft shed up until last night. I’ve been coming down with something and although having no energy, I still felt crafty. So out with the Mod Podge, old torn book, Martha Stewart 1″ craft punch and the German glitter.

Now I have two fun bowls and no idea what to do with them. Ha!

While I had the Mod Podge and glitter out, I rolled a few bulletin board pins in the glue, covered in the glitter left-overs, poked them into some corks and took them outside to dry. There, pretty pins.

    I love globes and can't throw them out because they are so visually stimulating with all the colors of the countries, this is a great use for them. I love seeing creativity at its best. I found you thru Mod Podge Rocks post. I love your blog, wish I could have been at Blissdom to meet you and add one more crafter blogger to the ranks there.

    I was wondering If you sold those globe bowls, r they fairly small like hand held size ones?

    Is it possible to buy 200 or so?

    Kind regards

    I am loving everything I see on your site!! I found you by looking up “pantry labels” and am thrilled! I don’t know which project I love the most, the shrinky dinks or the globe or all the printables, but I am fascinated by your talent. I will be following you forever (not in a stalking-kind-of-way….) Thank you for sharing your talent.
