Can you believe spring is in full swing and summer is quickly heading our way? I have been soaking up every moment of budding flowers, green plants showing up everywhere and lovely spring rains (Although I live in the foothills of a NM mountain range and boy do we get some WIND every spring. That part is not my favorite.). However, in the spirit of spring, today I am sharing how to make an easy DIY Globe Flower Vase.

I just love the bright and colorful nature of this vase. It’s a little non.conventional as far as vases go, but I like finding uses out of everyday objects!
I found a box of three 6″ globes at Home Goods.
Acrylic craft paint
X.acto Knife / Dremel
I wanted to simplify the pattern and colors of my globe, so I selected just four colors. I first outlined all the land in an aqua color. Then, filled in the outlines with a pea green color. Next was a soft blue and then a pop of brighter blue.
Depending on what kind of material your globe is made out of, you may be able to use an x.acto knife or a utility knife. My globe was paper wrapped around a hollow plastic sphere, so I had to use a small dremel to cut an opening. Either way, it should be a fairly simple task.
Once there was an opening in the globe, it becomes a perfect vase for your favorite spring flowers.
I filled my globe with simple white tulips, as well as a few bright green leaves.
Wouldn’t this be an easy and yet stunning centerpiece for your next brunch?
