    Supplies:

    • cardstock paper
    • CD
    • exacto knife
    • dremel, drill or metal skewer to poke holes into the CD
    • 2 paint colors of your choice
    • crackle paint
    • decoupage
    • decorative beads
    • wire

    Directions:

  1. I took an old CD and took two pieces of cardstock paper and traced the CD onto the paper.

  2. I then took an exacto knife and made three holes in the bottom of the CD (for the beads) and one hole in the top (for the hanger). You can use a dremel, or you can use a drill with a small bit, you can even get a metal skewer hot and poke a hole thru the CD.

  3. I then attached the cardstock onto the CD using decoupage medium. Let it dry. After it is dry then you can hollow out the holes in the paper.

  4. I painted my paper with craft paint of one color, let dry, (both sides).

  5. Then I used a crackle medium and brushed it on, let dry, (both sides).

  6. I then painted contrasting color over the crackle medium, let dry, (both sides).

  7. Then I added a picture I printed off the internet. I attached the picture with decoupage medium. You can do several coats of the decoupage medium. Let dry in between coats.

  8. I then put some wire thru the holes and attached the beads.

This is very simple and easy to do. Let your imagination soar! You can use scrapbook paper and images too.

Yes you can recycle old christmas card i have been doing it for yeas now. All i do is cut the card in half if it is not wrote on & use the front half. You can crochet around it after you punch holes around it, or you can use double sided tape & i put lace around it. Then you write on it what you want too.

Hi, I just love to take pictures. On my last visit to the Dollar Store, I found magnetic sheets. Yes, I made refrigerator magnets with the "extra copies" of pictures I had taken of friends and family. My friends and family loved receiving their new refrigerator magnets! What great memories! You might add a ribbon for the tree, than they will have a magnet during the year and an ornament for Christmas.
