Short on holiday decorations, but long on old CDs? 'Tis the season to be crafty.


Step 1: Glue CDs on ring
Arrange the CDs in evenly spaced intervals completely around the craft ring, shiny side facing out, and glue them into place.

Step 2: Glue the second row
Glue a second layer of CDs so that they're evenly spaced between the CDs on the first layer.

Step 3: Attach the hanger
Glue the picture hanger to the back of the ring so the wreath will hang properly.

Step 4: Glue the lights on
Glue the battery pack for the Christmas lights to the back of the wreath, opposite the hanger. When the glue dries, wrap the strand of lights around the outer edge of the wreath, with the lights hanging over onto the CDs. After positioning the lights, glue the strand to the backs of the CDs to hold it in place.

Step 5: Attach the bow
Glue the bow or tie the ribbon to the bottom of the wreath to give your creation some holiday flair.

Tip
Before displaying your wreath, remove any stray bits of glue with your hands or a plastic scraper.

Step 6: Hang it up
Tap a nail into your door and hang your wreath. If you can't use nails, use an over-the-door hanger. Turn the lights on and bask in the colorful glow.

Did You Know?
In 2000 global sales of CDs peaked at 2.5 billion. In 2006 that figure was down to 1.8 billion.
