Diy Cd Recycle for Room Decor

6 Materials
10 Minutes

Hi Friends! I like to recycle old cd's. Today I made an aesthetic decor from the cd.

If you want to watch all this content as a video, you can see all the details in this video.

Cut from one edge of the cd to the middle with scissors. It may be a little tricky, but you can cut it carefully. Slightly separate the 2 layers of the cd from the part you cut. If you can't do it with your fingers, you can also use a needle.

By heating the CD with a blow dryer, slowly separate the layers from each other. This way you will be able to easily cut the cd like a thick paper.

Draw the feather shape on the cd with a pen and carefully cut it out with scissors.

Scratch the feather and add details with the utility knife.

You can cut small details with scissors. Apply glue to the top of the feather and stick a silver thread. I used silver thread. It looked so beautiful. But you can use any rope you want.

You can hang this decor on your glass or balcony. It will look very beautiful. When the CDs touch each other in the wind, they make very nice sounds. And the cds reflect beautiful lights around in the light.

    I have always heard that shiny objects deter birds. This idea would be perfect for birds who try to nest in wreaths on front door. Cut in shape to compliment wreath theme and “bury” in wreath or make it part of wreath. Either way sure beats rubber snakes that birds ignore after couple of days. Can’t wait to try
