How to make a wreath out of old CDs. Short on holiday decorations, but long on old CDs? 'Tis the season to be crafty. you will need: a plastic, wooden, or foam craft ring, thirty old CDs, a hot-glue gun, a picture hanger, a strand of battery-powered holiday lights, batteries, a holiday bow or ribbon, a hammer, and a nail. Optional: A plastic scraper, and an over-the-door wreath hanger. STEP 1: Arrange the CDs in evenly-spaced intervals completely around the craft ring, shiny side facing out, and glue them into place. STEP 2: Glue a second layer of CDs so that they are evenly spaced between the CDs on the first layer. STEP 3: Glue the picture hanger to the back of the ring so the wreath will hang properly. STEP 4: Glue the battery pack for the Christmas lights to the back of the wreath, opposite the hanger. When the glue dries, wrap the strand of lights around the outer edge of the wreath with the lights hanging over onto the CDs. After positioning the lights, glue the strand to the backs of the CDs to hold it in place. STEP 5: Glue the bow or tie the ribbon to the bottom of the wreath to give your creation some holiday flair. Before displaying your wreath, remove any stray bits of glue with your hands or a plastic scraper. STEP 6: Tap a nail into your door and hang your wreath. If you can't use nails, use an over-the-door hanger. Turn the lights on, and bask in the colorful glow. Did you know? In 2000, global sales of CDs peaked at 2.5 billion. In 2006, that figure was down to 1.8 billion.
