4. Funky Homemade Disco Ball

No, we’re not bringing disco back. But if your children or teens are looking for some fun decor to spice up their rooms, this mini disco ball made from old CDs is just what the doctor ordered.

WikiHow also offers a different set of disco ball instructions and step-by-step photos.

The guide suggests using a store-bought foam ball as a base for this glitzy accessory. Foam is hard to recycle and can languish for decades or centuries in a landfill. Instead, you might reuse an old tennis ball, baseball, or other sports ball to avoid unnecessary waste.

5. Hanging Photo Frame

It’s a Priceless Life blogger Shantel Price wanted to make a cute photo gift for her newly-born granddaughter, Ava, but didn’t have any frames that struck her fancy. Her solution? Create an adorable hanging picture frame using an old CD.

Price adorned her used CD with pastel-colored buttons, sparkly charms, and scrapbooking paper from her “craft stash” and placed a photo of little Ava in the middle.

This craft makes a great decoration for nurseries, but don’t be afraid to stretch those creative legs a bit. Make frames for the kids’ sports photos to spice up the game room or use a photo of you and your partner for a Valentine’s Day gift your sweetie will love.
