The decline in the popularity of CDs (compact discs) and the appearance of superior solutions have made them absolete. This has left many of us with plentiful stacks of CDs and DVDs in overlooked, dusty corners in our homes. The chances that they’ll be in use again are quite slim, so why not use them to create something new? There are brilliant ways in which you can do this, such as using them to create decorative items or fancy up clothing items and ornaments with their unmistakeable shine. With just a couple of used discs, a good pair of scissors, and glue, the possibilities are endless – here are some DIY ideas that might inspire you.
