Hi, my name is Chrissy and I blog at Hoot Designs. I’m a creator by nature and love so many things and to make so many things, so much so that i’m all over the place crafting, so I started my blog to share my adventures in crafting.
I also have a photography blog called Hoot Photography. I’ve met so many fun ladies online that I would have never had the opportunity to meet had I not started my blog.
Happy Globe- ready for it’s transformation.
DIY Chalkboard Globe
I taped up the metal parts so I could spin the globe. And spray with the paint.
The metal AM PM disk at the top was also taped up as well as the disk at the bottom.
Now spray, spray, spray until the whole globe is covered.
Globes are made out of paper so they can bend easily into the round shape along the score lines.
And you can see those lines here.
And here we are all painted and untapped.
Time to season the globe.
After it’s completely dry, I left mine overnight. You can rub the whole surface with the side of a piece of chalk.
I then used a hand towel to brush off the chalk and rub it in to the globe.
It’s gave the globe a true chalkboard appearance and it also filled in the seams a little.
The bumps you see in the surface are the mountain bumps on the actual globe!
And she’s all complete!
Have fun writing any message you want on your new globe.
