Tutorial: Anthropologie Globe Knockoff - I loved the look and the idea behind this $200 globe at Anthro, so I made my own version.

In my opinion, Anthropologie has the coolest stuff but not the most budget friendly prices.  I think part of what I love about their items is their artisan quality…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 $200 globe at Anthro, so I made my own version.

step 2 globe

Step two:  Paint the base and the arm of the globe gold.

Step three:  Paint the earth. 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 an electronic 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.  Have fun crafting and creating!
