Happy Monday beautiful! Do you have big plans for this week? It's freeeeeezzzing here and I am feeling sluggish and just want to crawl back into bed. Monday morning with no coffee in the house makes for a dragging mama! So...before I dash out to Starbucks I thought I would try to jumpstart myself by sharing this fun project I did for Avery's room.....glittering the world should put some spring in anyone's step, right??
Step One-- Take it apart! I took it apart and took the bulb out as I was not going to use it as a light.
Step Two-- Spray paint that bad boy SILVER! And let it dry overnight. I ended up rigging the globe up on an old toy racket so I could spray the whole thing at one time - I am a very impatient crafter!! One note on this-- I debated as to whether or not to pull off the tape around the middle of the globe as I could not tell if that was what was holding the two pieces together so I decided to keep it on. If you know that the globe will hold together without the tape, pull it off.
Step Three-- Set up a tray or something to catch the glitter or you will have a giant mess on your hands (I used an acrylic tray and some old wrapping paper) Quickly cover half the globe with the glue. You need to work fast as I found it dries pretty quickly and turns into a bit of a mess if you have to go back and add more.
Step Five-- Put the globe back together and cut off the electrical cord - clearly make sure it is not plugged in before you do this!! After I put this back together, I actually let this sit outside for a few windy days as I didn't want glitter shed all over the house. It now has at home on a shelf in Avery's room. Every girl should have a glitter world!
Happy Monday! Hope you have a sparkly week!
