Crafturday Creative Mess Diwali Special 9 - Cd Sparkles!

I love recycling things, and today I am gonna tell you how to recycle CDs and use them in diwali decoration. Recycle Cds in  different ways and reduce e-waste. Try and reuse as many hings as you can and Go Green this Diwali.....

Supplies you will need:


2.Beads, sequins, lace, rhinestones



We know that  one side of the CD captures sun light and allows the CD to shine. We are going to make use of this beautiful feature.

Decorate the shiney surface of the CD with beads, rhinestones, sequins etc.

When the CD is ready, place the CD in the center of a rangoli and place diyas around the CD. CD will capture the light from diyas and it will create a pleasing, colorful glow in the room.

You don’t need any specialized knowledge.... just creative mind and an artistic flair... so go ahead and make sparkling Cds

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you tried making these, then click some bright pictures and send them to me at I like kind comments too. Please feel free to drop a note! :) Thanks for stopping by!
