DIY Crafts: 25 Ways to Recycle CDs and DVDs
With the rise of digital music and streaming videos, CDs and DVDs will eventually fade like floppy disks and vinyl records. Maybe it’s not that serious quite yet, but technology definitely seems to be heading that way. As a musician, I have a small collection of CDs, but sadly, I rarely listen to them anymore (because I have them on my computer and iPhone). Have no fear, though — there’s new life for our unused CDs and DVDs! We’ve rounded up 25 incredible DIY crafts and activities that will make you rethink the average disk. Click through each link below and be inspired!
