    Okay, I am seriously loving these, not just as outdoor ornaments though… they remind me of that gorgeous globe chandelier from Ballard Designs! Hmmmm… I’m sensing another knockoff that needs done… 😉

  8. Cheryl says:

    I absolutely love these globes! Thanks so much for some much needed outdoor inspiration!

  9. Kimberly says:

    I love these globes. I also have been wanting to buy globes for my garden, but it would be much more practical to make them! Thank you for the great DIY.

  10. Thanks so much for stopping by the POP party. I will be pinning these (great tut!) and sharing on my fb fan page. They are fabulous 🙂 Shannon

  12. this is such a clever idea for the garden. Need to save this for my spring project list.

  13. Candice says:

    Very Cute! I love those globes!!

  14. Great idea – I love orbs in the garden! Pinning these!

  15. Great idea! I made similar orbs with old rusty mattress springs I found, but they were much harder to work with and not everyone has access to such materials. I will definitely have to give these a try. Thanks for sharing!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much Kerry! I still love those globes…. and they are really easy to make! 🙂

  18. I’m seriously loving these! Right up my alley!

  19. JanM says:

    Thank you so much! I love these! I paid $162 for a 24″ globe yesterday, with plans to make it into a chandelier for my dining room. Never again 🙂

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much Jan! I’m glad you love them! Me too! I bet your chandelier will turn out fabulous! 🙂

  20. JanM says:

    So sorry to post again but found an alternative that I thought I would pass on to you. Oasis makes a heavy duty ribbon wire in various widths and in 11 colors! It is more expensive, but I thought how pretty the spheres would look with the sun shining on them if they were made from copper. Then I saw the flat wire in lime green, pink, red, blue, black, copper…… Lot’s of choices 😀

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Jan! THANK YOU so much for your comment… don’t be sorry! Thank you so much for sharing this! I haven’t heard of anything like it, but your right, the globes would look fabulous made from copper! Love that idea! Off to check it out! 🙂

  21. I’m so glad I came across this tutorial. I’ve got a project in mind that these would be perfect for!

  22. Katie Adams says:

    These are really cool and a great tutorial too! Thank You!

  23. Ruth S. says:

    These globals are very nice! Thanks for sharing. You did a great job with wrapping the wire ends, as it can be challenging to get a neat look. I think this idea would also be great as a kitchen light fixture cover.

  24. […] Looking to spruce up your garden this year? These DIY wire garden globes are easy to make and require minimal supplies! Just think how awesome they’d look hanging […]

    FYI — Painting galvanized metal, with normal alkyd-based paints, will result in poor paint adhesion and the paint will peel. There are different methods of treating galvanized metal before attempting to paint, but I prefer the non-toxic method of spraying the metal with apple cider vinegar several times.
    There are better methods (Google for more options), but for proper paint adhesion, you do need to prep the wire first 🙂
    Love your tutorial, and your globes are beautiful.

    I make these globes also and at Xmas time I wrap them with a LED strings AWESOME
