FINALLY. I’m still not done with all of these CDs, but I think this will be the last post in this series. I found all of these great ideas to upcycle CDs, but some aren’t “safe” for a klutz like me. This website that has 100 Amazing Upcycling Ideas that Anyone Can Do. There’s some “melt the CD and make pretty art” ideas that just look a bit too dangerous for me, but that others might enjoy.
Here are the links to the two other parts of this series…
Banner using scrapbook paper:
|With the mod podge, putting on the individual letters and then waiting to dry.
Afterwards, I went over the whole CD again with mod podge to give it a matte look.
Your Baby Month-by-Month:
We have a neat frame that we put our monthly baby photos into, but a CD would be perfect to hang up pictures of your baby month-by-month as well.
|Cut out a circle of scrapbook paper to fit the CD. Mod podge it onto the cd (only the back of the scrapbook paper). Let it dry. Round the edges of your wallet photo. Mod podge the back of the photo and placed it onto the CD.|
|I stuck the sticker onto the CD here.|
|Mod podged over it all… make sure the ink on the 6 months is dry first.|
Here’s some other ideas that I had as well:
- Baby Mobile: You can just tie a string to each CD to hang from the top of the mobile. The shiny side is really nice and sparkly. You could mod podge the side with the CD label or if you’re upcycling old CDs that you used to like, you could just keep the CD as is.
- Height Chart: If you glue enough CDs together then you could do the same thing that I did with the banner, but make a height chart.
- Thread Christmas lights through the CDs to see if it reflects off them nicely… we tried this and it does work a little, but we didn’t play with it enough.
- Use a CD on top of a large vase to hold a single flower if you don’t have a smaller vase.
