Here’s a creative way to use those old CD’s you have just sitting around. This ornament can also showcase holiday photos or small original drawings done by your kids.
What you will need:
•Photo or magazine picture
Instructions for the project: Begin by tracing around the CD onto a piece of felt. Cut out the felt circle. Cut a 10-inch piece of the ribbon. Tie the ribbon into a loop. Put a small dab of glue onto the back of the CD towards the outside edge. Press the ribbon loop carefully into the glue to make the hanger. Spread the glue over the entire back of the CD. Center the felt circle on the glue and gently press. This should cover the writing and ribbon ends, and it will be the back of your ornament. Crop the photo or cut around the figure in the picture you are using. You can cut it into a rectangle shape, circle, or whatever you want. For a fancy edge, consider using pinking sheers! Trace the outside shape of your picture onto a piece of felt. Cut out the shape, making it about 1/2-inch wider than the outside edge of your picture. Glue the photo onto the piece of felt positioned so you can see the felt on all sides. Then you can glue this onto the center of the CD, making sure you cover the hole completely. Now your new ornament is ready to hang.
