Desk Globe Costume

Posted by Michelle WilliamsPosted ago

My son loves geography and wanted to be a globe this year. It is handcrafted by myself . I used a 3 1/2 ft inflated beach ball and taped it to a bucket for a base. I used paper mache to cover the ball ( it took 1 hr for each layer ) and let it dry before I added another, 7 layers in total. After completing all 7 layers, I painted the whole thing blue then drew and painted on the continents . I used white puffy paint to outline the continents and different green paints to make it stand out. Once all the painting was completed , I removed it off the base and popped the ball inside and removed it. I cut holes in the top for the head and hands. I created the base and arm of the globe out of plastic pipe and gorilla tape. Wooden dowels were used to secure the arm of the globe. Approx cost was $40
