We are in awe of Cheryl’s unstoppable holiday spirit! Look what she whipped with her old CDs, spray paint, beads from eCrafty.com and ribbon scraps.



These are SO cute and festive! They’re a cross between a flattened ornament and a beaded snowflake – so cute, great project to make with kids or groups.

DIY Upcycled CD Ornaments ~ Christmas Craft Recipe from eCrafty.com Design by Cheryl Satterlee

Upcycled CD Ornaments Instructions from eCrafty.com

  1. Holding your nail with the pliers, heat with lighter and make a hole in CD close to the edge.
  2. Let cool.
  3. Hang CD from wire while spray painting.
  4. Spray paint your CD. Several light coats are best. Use continuous motion. Follow directions on spray paint can. 
  5. Let dry fully.
  6. Start by securing one end of the wire in the hole. Then add beads. String the beads on one side of the CD only. Smaller beads (1/6″, 1/4″, 1’2″) or between 4mm and 12mm work well.
  7. Wrap wire and beads around the CD. 12-13 rows look nice.
  8. Twist the end of the wire on the back side to secure.
  9. Hang with ribbon.



Thanks always, best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday time. From all the busy elves at eCrafty.com!
