  1. Remove the globe from its stand. Using a crafts knife, cut around the equator to separate the two halves of the globe, then carefully pry them apart.  
  2. Using the socket of a cord kit as a guide, trace a circle the same size as the bottom of the socket at the top of one half of the globe. Use a crafts knife to cut out the circle. 
  3. Use a foam brush to paint the inside of the globe half with off-white crafts paint. Let dry. 
  4. Place the socket through the hole, and attach following the package instructions.
