It’s that time of year again! I hope you enjoy my series this year. Day 1 is an ornament I’ve thought about many times and just never got to it. So this year I decided it will be #1.
I’ve seen diy ornaments in the past with broken cd’s but did you know if you melt the cd a
little bit it gets all sparkly? It get’s so sparkly and shimmers.
It’s so beautiful.
You will need:
- 2 cd’s
- Liquitex Matte Super Heavy Gel )or any paste type medium you have on hand)
- 3″ Smooth Foam Ball
- Heat gun
- 20 gauge wire
- Bead cap
- Tear drop bead
I used 2 blank cd’s the memorex kind that have a purple hue.
Cut cd in half,
Pry apart the layers,
The cd will be thinner and easier to melt.
I used my heat gun in a well ventilated area to melt the cd a bit and did not touch the cd till it cooled completely.
Then just cut it into a bunch of tiny squares and triangles.
Now add the Liquitex to the ball in sections using a paint brush and then just place the cd pieces in the liquitex.
Once you’ve covered the ball let dry and add your topper.
