• Cut a slit into the top of the bag/pumpkin for the stem. When choosing a stem, pick a thicker stick so that it doesn’t break. All of these sticks were from dead trees so they can be brittle if very dry. You also want the stick sticking out farther than you think because you’ll be wrapping it with yarn which takes up space.

• Wrap it around the bag and tuck it under to stay in place. Continue to wrap the yarn, about 3-5 wraps before changing directions usually creates the best result, but you can really do anything. There’s no right or wrong way, just be sure to cover the bag. When you are happy with your results, tuck the string under another string at the bottom and trim.

• You can squish the pumpkin a bit to your liking. Just be careful because it will loosen the yarn. The tighter you wrap your yarn around the bag, the smaller your pumpkin will be.

• To make the two bag pumpkin simply attach two bags with masking tape.

Upcycled Globe Light Cover Project


Upcycled Globe Light Cover Project

Upcycle your old glass globes inexpensively and easily to create beautiful outdoor table lighting, festive holiday decor, beautiful mantle accents and more. There is no limit to where a can of paint, an old globe light and a battery operated tea light can take you!



Upcycled Globe Light Cover Project


Have an old light globes in the closet from from an update and wondered what to do with it? How about making a holiday or seasonal decor that is close to the original purpose?

This example is orange “pumpkin” for Halloween. This can be set up as mantle decor in an entire patch if making a few, or used as an accent if making only one or two. How about making a dozen or so and lighting up the porch on Halloween or for Christmas? Or using a lighter color for the backyard table and garden parties?

Since these are glass, it is necessary to watch where they are placed. While no live candle should be used, kicking the glass over could result in it being broken.

Upcycled Globe Light Cover Project


Supplies Used;

• Glass Globe Light Cover (choose globes that have a texture) If you don’t have them on hand, they are found very reasonably priced at thrift stores or yard sales. The more interesting, the better. The globe needs to have some texture, so in this case interesting is not only good, but necessary!
Spray Paint
Sandpaper
Glue Gun
Glue Sticks
• Wide Mouth Mason Jar Ring
• Twine or Raffia Ribbon
• Scissors
Battery Operated Tea Light

Upcycled Globe Light Cover Project


• Wash globes well in hot soapy water, dry completely. Rub down globes with a rag or paper towel soaked in rubbing alcohol – this helps remove any residual oil or fingerprints, and allows for better paint adhesion.

• Once dry, take globe’s outdoors to spray paint.
• Hanging your globe from a nearby tree branch is a good way to get complete paint coverage, but watch out for over spray! Hold up a piece of cardboard on the opposite side of where the paint is being sprayed to catch any paint over spray.
• Spray the first layer lightly. This creates a tack coat that will allow other coats will stick well too.
• Dry 5 minutes.
• Spray another coat or two of paint allowing for dry time in between until desired coverage is reached.
• After final coat let dry 2-3 hours.

Upcycled Globe Light Cover Project


• Since these globes have texture, this gives an gives an easy surface to rub off paint with sandpaper and let light shine through.
• Once the paint is completely dry, sandpaper and scrub off paint only on the raised, textured areas.
• Wipe away dust with a damp paper towel.
