DIY Globe Flower Vase

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 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.
