19 DIY Local Globes

DIY Local Globes

In Russia and other post Soviet countries there were a real craze on independence after they finally got it with USSR collapse. Sometimes this took some weird forms like, for example, making the globes of their own country. Yes, those were just like regular globes we used to see on geography classes but instead the whole world only their own country was mapped on it. These things were officially on sale and still you can buy
something like "the globe of Ukraine" in shops of Kiev. So then people went further and decided to make the globes of their local cities or even villages. With modern technologies this can be done by practically anyone just in a few minutes and then can be used to amaze the friends and relative. We'll show you how. As a result we can get such neat globe of your place like on the picture above.
