Small World Decoupage Globe (Vintage Disneyland Room)

You all have seen the amazing decoupage globes created by Wendy Gold, right? They are so inspirational, and I would love to own one. This is one of my favorites, and one that I thought would fit into my kids' Vintage Disneyland Room pretty well:
ImagineNations by Wendy Gold
It reminds me of the Pixar movie UP. Carl and Ellie would have it in their house. Don't you think? The more I thought about a vintage globe in the vintage Disneyland room, the more I thought that I needed to make a small world globe that reflected the artistic style of one of my favorite Disney artists, Mary Blair

I found artwork online that I printed out and decoupaged onto the globe.

I found the different sun artwork at the Disneyland California Report, and the children from around the world were created by Greg Maletic for Hong Kong Disneyland. After decoupaging the images to my globe, I hand painted yellow and pink triangles to create a path around the world and connect all the images.

I am really happy with the way it came out.

What do you all think? I hope to be able to show off the completed Disneyland room soon!

  7. That looks amazing! What kind of paper did you use to print the images on?

    1. Hi Brett! I just printed them off on regular old copy paper. The ink can smear a bit with ink jet printers, but I waited 24 hours after printing and I think that helped.

  8. I love this so much! That's my favorite ride!
