I have been wanting to share this since last year but because I put a skeleton and a pumpkin in my cute worldly bowl...I felt like I need to wait till closer to Halloween....Note to self don't make things seasonal if they're not. :)
Anyway, it was a fun fairly simple project. I after cutting the globe in half (okay after having my husband cut the globe in half) I painted the inside blue with acrylic paint...The globe is cardboard so it took several coats to get an even coverage.
For the bowl I used my hot glue gun and glued a crystal candle stick to the bottom...brilliant...nope!!!
When I picked up the bowl the first layer of the globe just ripped off and the two pieces came apart...so I re-glued but the same thing kept happening....Not a sell-able item. :(
If I was to try it again I would use a wooden candle stick and screw the two pieces together...The crystal was just to heavy for the paper on the globe.
To make the lamp shade I again used my hot glue gun to glue the ribbon of beads around the bottom of the shade...This time there was no problem.
I picked up the lamp at G.W. ...the colors were perfect so I didn't even have to paint it...SCORE!!
The screw went threw the hole on the top of the globe and the finial on top of that...So Simple!
Well I guess you could say I've gone global. :)
Yet again, I will be linking up to the parties on my side bar.
