Learn how to make a disco ball drinks glass out of old CDs! This is a great DIY idea for parties. You could even use this disco ball craft as a plant pot or a bowl to keep your jewellery! Pin the image above to save the idea for later.
Cut the CDs into small squares using your sharpest pair of scissors. This step is quite difficult as I found that the reflective paper on the CDs tended to peel/flake off as I was cutting them.
I found a few techniques online that are supposed to make cutting the CDs easier. These included: placing them in a bowl of boiling water, heating them with a heat tool or hair dryer or brushing a layer of PVA glue over the top of the non-reflective side of the CD. I tried all of these and found the hair dryer to be the most helpful (the heat makes the CDs more flexible and easier to cut). Be careful with this step though, obviously with the heat from the hair dryer, but also the CDs can be quite sharp once cut.
Stick the squares to the round glass using the glue gun. Be careful with the squares as they are still quite fragile and I found that some of the reflective paper peeled of as I was sticking them down!
Continue to stick the reflective squares from the CDs around the entire glass. Your disco ball drinks glass is now finished!
