4 DVD Case Hacks!

8 Materials
15 Minutes

Yes it's time for another challenge - DVD Hacks! We all have them and I tend to donate the movies we are done with. However - what do you do with them if something happens to the DVD - it's scratched, lost, etc? Here are a few DVD case hacks that I came up with...

Wall Art -

I bought these wall stickers from Dollar Tree.

I cut some gray marble card stock to fit inside the DVD sleeve, placed a sticker on each card stock piece, and slid it into the DVD case.

I hot glued the cases together. You could use a more permanent glue like E6000 or super glue if you like.

I used double stick tape on the back and I hung it up above our pantry in our kitchen.

Dry Erase Board/Command Center -

I measured and cut white paper to place on the DVD cases under the sleeve.

I decided to use 6 DVD cases for a larger white board/command center and I set them up like this.

I hot glued the edges together. You could use a more permanent glue if you like.

Use dry erase markers to write on the sleeve, and it wipes right off.

I glued 4 magnets onto the 4 corners on back and placed it on my refrigerator. Now I have a section for my grocery list, a section for each of my kid's chores, a reminder section, etc.

Picture Frame -

For this project I hot glued together 2 DVD cases at an angle.

I slid in 2, 5x7 picture of my kids and placed it on display in my home.

Vertical Planter -

*This project was inspired by this post - https://www.hometalk.com/diy/upcycle/how-we-repurposed-empty-dvd-cases-to-make-a-30239427

I took an old sign I had, set it on a vinyl table cloth, traced it, and cut it out.

I Mod Podged the sign ...

and placed the cut out vinyl table cloth on top.

To make my planter I would need to use my DVD cases open and horizontal with the opening on the top.

I took my DVD cases, placed them on the vinyl table cloth and created and cut out the shape I wanted. I wanted my case to be open so I stared with the "v" moved to the flat horizontal side, back to the other "v" and then made sure to have some extra to wrap around the back on both sides.

Here is the cut shape.

I slid the table cloth through the plastic sleeve and left the sides hanging out.

I left the DVD case open and wrapped the table cloth around the back side and secured it with hot glue.

I glued both DVD "baskets" to the board.

*Note - I used hot glue, but needed to come back and secure it more later. I would recommend a more permanent and sturdy glue like E6000 or silicone if you are leaving it outside.

I added some dirt, and plants to each DVD case opening.

I will be hanging mine inside, but I set it up outside for this picture as the light is better.
