Paper Globe Decor

By: Karisa Tell, Editor for

You probably haven't seen cheap centerpiece ideas as cute as this! Make your own paper globe decor to use as wedding reception centerpiece ideas or just around your house for everyday use. They're simple and thrifty too!

See this project and more on the blog!


  • Colored Paper
  • Brads
  • Scissors and/or a paper cutter
  • Hole punch (I used my Crop-a-Dile)


  1. The paper I used was standard 8 1/2" by 11" so I trimmed thin strips from the short side and then cut each strip in half--so each strip of paper was about 4 inches long and about 1/2" wide. When I make the rest of my centerpieces, I think I will make the strips of paper even thinner, perhaps 1/4" wide.

  2. Next I punched holes in both ends of each strip so that I could fit the brads through. I wouldn't recommend punching several at a time (although you know I did!) because my strips were not uniform widths, and some of my punches went off the edge.

  3. Once each strip has a hole punched on either end, insert a brad through each strip, and lock it in place by spreading the back flat.

  4. Then it was time to spread the strips apart to make a globe shape. This part's pretty self-explanatory--you just fan the strips out and arrange them evenly, with the brads on top and bottom.

  5. Repeat steps 1-4 until you have made a million paper globes. Then you can get married!

Looks like a great group project w/your own colors for the occasion. Also would make an entertaining cat toy: 1 @ a time.
