Upcycled Crafts: CD Pond
Today I wanted to take a look back at Ruth’s creation for this past year’s Mini Maker Faire. It was a crane wishing tree, with a pond made from all upcycled materials. The pond is what we’ll be focusing on today. Remember, this is an adult craft! Warning as far as safety goes: Wear protective glasses, gloves and clothing for the prep in this craft!
To make the base of “water” for the pond, Ruth took used aluminum foil and crumpled it up, laying it out on the surface area allotted for the pond. The tutorial part I’m going to go over is how to make the CD accents that go on top of the aluminum foil.
Wearing safety gear, take a hammer and boxcutter or nail and break apart the CD. It’s best to do this outside in an area away from others, as sometimes broken bits can fly off.
Again, wearing protective gear (those shards can be sharp!) take shards and glue them where you’d like them on top of the aluminum foil.
