In my opinion, Anthropologie has the coolest stuff but not the most affordable prices. I think part of what I love about their items is that they look hand crafted and unique, not factory made. It’s this characteristic that makes it so tempting to try to knock off Anthro items. I loved the look and the idea behind this globe at Anthro, so I made my own version.
This post first appeared at Dollar Store Crafts, where you can find me every Tuesday!
- Globe (found at a yard sale for $1)
- Paint – on hand
- Stickers – $1 and up
Step one: Prime the entire globe with flat white craft paint.
Step two: Paint the base and the arm of the globe gold.
Step three: Paint the sphere. To achieve a hue similar to the Anthro version, I mixed 3 parts blue paint to one part yellow paint.
Step four: Use gold stickers to spell out your message. Embellish with gold stars.
I have a Silhouette cutting machine, so I cut my own letters and stars out of gold vinyl. I found similar gold letters at the craft store, which would be a much more affordable option if you don’t own an expensive cutting machine. I also often see phrase stickers at the dollar store, and those would work well on this project, too.
