This project combines some of my favorite things: it’s almost impossible to mess up, cheap (or free if you have the materials on hand!), fairly quick, and results in something cool for your room.
You will need:
-A number of CDs of your choice. Clean out your old CD collection of mix-CDs that your friends gave you (which are now uploaded to playlists on your iTunes library), or find a use for all those AOL CDs that they used to send out for free. Recycling facilities for CDs are hard to find so this is a perfect way to up-cycle them!
-A flat screwdriver or something sharp that you can use to carve into the CD
After it dries, use a flat screwdriver to scratch a design into the paint. Do this over a piece of paper to catch all the little bits of paint that comes off. I was really surprised at how easy it was to create a beautiful design. It comes out looking nice no matter how much detail you put into it.
Yay! Easy and beautiful CD scratch art. Go make your own!
