Glass globe lights look really cool. All that you need to do here is make sure that if you are using bulbs or LED lights or whatever other light, you get the connection right and leave a bit of space in the globe to allow the wiring. Along with this, you also need to make sure that if you are using candles, then you don’t use any cloth based glove material. Or at least make it a point to cover the same well.
Here Are Some Cool Ideas For Making Glass Globes-
Folded Paper Globes
These are easily available in the market and you can just buy one from the lantern store or even the supermarket. You can get one that comes in flame-resistant or heat resistant material. Just take the globe and place a glass jar candle inside. You can also connect a wire with a bulb to the same for illuminating it. Choose in different kinds of colors and hang them from trees or even use it on the side stand or over your coffee table.
Clear Glass Globes
If you have a spare glass jar at home that is round in shape or even a goldfish jar, it works as a great globe. For making this you need to illuminate the interiors using a candle. You can color up the jar for getting a more dramatic effect. You can also apply glue on the interiors and sprinkle some glitters. Then light the candles and place the bowl upside down over the same.
These are easily available in flea markets and you can also get basket like bamboo globes. Try to find something that is spread out on the bamboo so that light is more visible. Then you can simply fit in a bulb holder here and set up your wire and illuminate the same. You can also use a candle for this purpose. Make sure you get a flat base so that the candle stays still.
Tulle Pendant Globes
For this one, you just need to pick a glass ball or bulb that is already there. For sprucing up the decor, take a net fabric of any color of your choice. Now fold it the way you do with a fan. Fold one side then reverse the fold on the other. Stich together or clip together using a pin. Then place it on top of the globe or round lamp and see how it transforms from boring to gorgeous.
Flower Globe Light
For making this, you need a round lamp or even a round shaped hanging lamp. Take it off the plug. Use 2 fruit baskets and pin up artificial flowers all around it. Now take out the lamp exterior shape and join together these two baskets. You can tie them up using a string or even a heat resistant fabric. You can also do a half globe.
The half globe is rather easy to do. You just need a fruit basket that is made from either wood or heat resistant materials like wrought iron or steel. Then over turn it and place a light candle underneath. You can also use a bulb here if you want. Decorate it on top with some fresh flowers or even a dramatic motif.
Pom Pom Globe Light
For making pom pom globe lights, you just need a normal globe light. But you should make sure that you use a higher powered bulb. Then cover the globe using the pom pomp. Just open the stitches using a scissor and clip together with pins. Enjoy the gorgeous lights.
