Last Christmas I made a tree out of the old and advertising CDs and bought a string of lights and taped each bulb in the center of each disc. The reflection was pretty and we had a neat yard decoration. Just be sure to use outdoor lights and cord.

Editor's Note: Vi sent in these great pictures of her CD Christmas Tree. It's always helpful when people can send in pictures of their projects so everyone can see what they look like finished. Thanks Great Granny Vi!

Great idea! I moved out of state last year and had to downsize - lost many holiday decorations.


I'm currently working on a 'CD curtain' for my kitchen window. I'm using glass paint on the cd's, then drilling small holes on four sides. Then attach the cd's together with large jump rings or you could use metal binder rings.

Another idea is to use glitter in the advertising side of the CD. Leave the other side natural. First you should design what you would like on any side of the CD, and then put glue. As soon as you put the glue on the CD you add the glitter. Any color, or a combinanation of material will work perfectly.
