Paper Globes

After seeing Heather's vibrant and fun paper globes in the most recent issue of Home Companion, I thought they would be the perfect addition to our home decor. I made a total of four globes. They are easy and quick to make. Best of all they make a great visual impact either grouped together or on their own. Heather's blog has complete instructions.

What fun spring projects are you working on?
