I have a few items in my home/craft closet that I just re-do over and over and over again. (This usually involves spray paint.) One of those items is an old globe…
I don’t like Valentine’s Day decor that is overly mushy or too busy. This simple solution to create decor from what I already have was fun and easy. To go from Halloween to Valentine’s Day, the first thing I did was tear off the ribbons and spray the over the chalkboard paint with a nice white primer.
Once the primer is dry, spray a nice big area with black paint. Why? So you can have black letters on your globe, of course!
Once you have the letters adhered to the globe, spray over it with red paint and let it dry.
Next, I cut out a contact paper heart and centered it over the letters.
Unless you cut little slits in the heart, it will not lay flat. I am lazy… so I did not do this. Just smooth out the wrinkles and make sure the edges are sealed. It’s not perfect, but whatever. It’s close enough for government work. Spray over everything with white primer again.
Now, you can wait for it to dry and then spray with a white paint, or you can be lazy like me and just leave it white primer. I kind of like the contrast between the the flat primer and the glossy red and black paint. (Which was convenient, since I am lazy.)
Once you’re done peel off the heart…
…then peel off the letters.
There ya go.
