Today’s thrifty treasure is a vintage globe transformed into a display bowl well at least half of it. The globe bowl is one of my favorite DIY projects. I saw it in a magazine a few years ago and knew I could make one myself. It’s easy and pretty quick too.
First of course you need a vintage globe. If you follow me, you know I have more than a few vintage globes. Globes are one thing I can never resist in a thrift store.
First you have to remove the globe mounting by removing the screw in the base.
After you have the sphere separated from the mounting, see tape holding the two halves of the globe together at the equator. Remove the tape and take the globe apart. Taking the globe apart is a little difficult but with determination it is possible. I ran a dinner knife around the opening at the equator to help separate the two halves.
You can let your imagination run wild figuring out what to do with the extra half of globe. Pinterest is an excellent resource for inspiration but as you see I haven’t decided how to use my other half yet.
I reattached the original globe base to the bottom of the half sphere I chose for bowl. I placed it on a tray made from a recycled cabinet door in a Miss Mustard Seed painting class here.
Then I filled the bowl with pinecones, natural white vase filler, some antlers, and pumpkin gourds.
