Too Cool for School!

Turned an old Rummage sale $3 world globe into 2 cool overhead hanging lights!
have to split the globe open. Mine was plastic so it was a little tricky to split. It wasn't on a stand or anything, I purchased it stand alone.

One 1/2 had the perfect round circle at the top to screw in the lamp kit.
The 2nd 1/2 of the globe I placed the lamp kit fixture on top and drew a circle to get the perfect width. Then using my dremmel proceeded to make my way around my guide to cut the hole. It was hard on the plastic, but I'm sure on a different material globe would be easier to do.

Then screwed in the light kit to the top and voila! All done!
