Glistening Snowflake CD Ornament

Easy and Inexpensive DiY project

Glistening snowflakes make this ornament especially cool. Pun intended. Upcycling old compact discs is also very cool. You can use old dvds as well as cds. The snowflake theme extends the use of these ornaments well beyond Christmas for the whole winter long. The contrast makes the snowflakes really stand out.
They are quite elegant yet very simple to make. In fact, if you can color you can make these. You likely have everything on hand to make these and since recycled cds are the base, the ornaments cost practically nothing to make.

Fabulous Faux Stained Glass Christmas Ornament

Adding foil to the back will give it a different and equally fabulous look.
