DIY Constellation Globe

You'll Need:
1 over sized ornament (I found mine at the thrift store)
1 candle holder that fits the over sized ornament (I found mine at the thrift store)
1 white paint sharpie pen
1 pack of gold star scrapbook stickers
1 small can of chalkboard paint

1. Head to the thrift store and in the Christmas decor find an oversized Christmas ornament and a candle holder that will fit your ornament (you can also find both of these at Hobby Lobby and Michaels).Then paint the ornament with chalkboard paint.
2. With a white paint Sharpie draw in the constellations using this map and then draw in the names of the constellations.
3. Then use scrapbook star stickers (I found mine at Michaels) to place on the star locations on the constellations.

You're done! Easy peasy right?!
