The disco: a great idea, as it is possible to use old CD-drives

Older CD-drives are still kept at home for many, we still feel sorry to throw them … Iridescent and sparkling, these drives simply do not give rest to fans to create their own hands. After all of them can do a lot of beautiful things.


In this case, we have:

  • old CD-drives
  • hot melt adhesive (or other strong adhesive)
  • a long sharp object (awl, needle, etc.)
  • forceps
  • thin wire
  • Styrofoam ball
  • a hammer
  • towel
  • scissors

Let’s start:

First, you need to partition the disks into little pieces. To do this, wrap them in a towel (or other tissue) and beat with a hammer. Better yet, if you before this, place the disc in the freezer for 15 minutes.


If you want to drive the pieces have a certain shape – there is nothing easier. Holding tongs, put them briefly in boiling water. Drives will quickly become soft and you can cut them out of anything you want.


If you decide to not break and does not cook wheels, but simply cut with scissors, be careful.


Now we take a sharp object such as a needle, and a hole in the Styrofoam ball. Now, through it is possible to stretch the wire.


At one end we fix a wire that she was kept in a ball. On the other hand, we turn loop that the ball can be suspended.


Finally, glue the pieces to the bowl disc.

What exactly to do, decide for yourself. Disco-ball, Christmas decorations, shiny photo frame or mirror – the choice is limited only by your imagination.
