DIY Decorative Globes - Using Pull Tabs?! Yes!

I was hording pull tabs for the kids school charity event. After the event, we were still in the habit of saving pull tabs, so I had built up a large stash. I decided to get creative and see what I could come up with using the pull tabs.
Handful from my stash of pull tabs . .
I made patterns with the pull tabs in Styrofoam balls.
On some of the globes, I used Smooth Finish. This product is made to smooth out styrofoam. I purchased the Smooth Finish at Walmart for about $5.00. I applied the smooth finish using my fingertip to the pull tab decorated globes.
I let the Smooth Finish dry overnight. The next day, I spray painted the globes with metallic silver, metallic gold and white spray paint.
