Like many of you, my favourite DIY theme is a process that encompasses sustainability, zero waste, recycling and upcycling.
Remember the days when we had shelves piled with CDs with music compilations, movies, data back-up and more? If you still haven’t thrown your collection to trash, there is opportunity to exercise your creativity and give these CDs a new leash of life.

From one-of-a-kind festive ornaments to coasters and wall decor, here are a few creative ways to re-purpose CDs.
