DIY Christmas Tree Globe

Since the DIY globe I made using two IKEA bowls was a hit, I thought I would make a Christmas version. This DIY Christmas globe is so easy you can totally make it in time for your Christmas guests to arrive. And who doesn't love an IKEA hack?

Christmas shelf decorations

It would be so fun to use a bunch of these together as an advent calendar with lil' surprises in each. Or just use it as one of your Christmas shelf decorations. Switch out your catch all for this lil' festive number. Buying Christmas decor is always fun but but there is just something special about doing DIY Christmas decorations ... don't ya think?

DIY Christmas decor

First, put the hinge on the bowls to adjoin them. Center the hinge on the rim of the bottom and top bowl. Using a very thin drill bit, drill a small hole where you will put your first screw hinge. Screw in your first screw. Continue doing this until each screw is screwed in. Next, print your template onto card stock. Trace your template onto the bowl. Tape off where you traced the tree. Paint.
