Don’t you just hate throwing or worse yet, shredding, CD’s or DVD’s away? I do!
Yes…it’s true you can put them through a shredder but what happens after that?
Here are some easy and fun ways to recycle old CD’s and DVD’s:
Drink Coasters – Glue felt to the bottom and viola’
Mix into a Photo Collage.
Hang from a tree to keep birds away from your garden.
Make a CD bowl – Put in the oven on low heat over a metal bowl or heat with a hair dryer. Once softened you can gently bend them into a shape. Seal hole if necessary.
Driveway Reflectors – Glue to a stick and pound into the ground. That’s easy!
Wallpaper Border – Glue all around the room. Cool!
Picture Frame – Glue disks to wood to create a picture frame.
Sun Catcher – Glue label sides together. Run fishing line through the hole and hang. Sparkly!
CD Mobile – Glue label sides together. Run fishing line through the hole and hang. Sparkly!
Found Object Art – Break up CD’s and glue into a mosaic tile piece.
CD Clock – buy clockworks at the craft store. There’s already a hole there:)
Tree Ornaments of course – use your creativity!
Paint, embellish or decorate old disks….the sky’s the limit!
