A DIY Disco Ball Made from Old CDs

Remember CDs? Those shiny discs feel as outdated as microfiche and ditto machines, don’t they? If you’ve still got some CDs in your stash, turn them into a super awesome DIY disco ball!

You can often still find CDs at thrift stores, and they usually aren’t in the best shape. The cases are cracked, the inserts are torn, and the discs themselves are usually pretty scratched up. Unplayable CDs don’t have to be destined for the landfill, though! Kimbo from A Girl and a Glue Gun shared a tutorial at Skip to my Lou for how to turn a stack of past-their-prime CDs into a rad disco ball. Here’s what you need to make your own:

  • balloon or punch ball
  • newspaper
  • flour
  • water
  • Mod Podge
  • white spray paint
  • silver spray paint
  • glitter
  • scratched CDs (about 25)
  • scissors
  • hot glue
