Chalkboard Globe Tutorial (Guest Post)

Here’s a tutorial from our today’s guest blogger to make Chalkboard Globe.
 

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.

 

I wanted to share a super fun project with you that I believe by far, is the most exciting project I have ever made. I found my globe on Ebay for a reasonable price. Maybe your’re lucky enough to have one at home already. Below is the step by step tutorial. What’s really great is you can make your own “chalkpaint“.
And your globe does not have to have the standard issue black or green.
You can find many chalkboard paint recipes online.

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.

Isn’t that a fun project to create with chalkboard paint!
The globe can be used as a decorative accent. As well as for creative learning with the kids.
