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.

2

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.

3

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.

6

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.
