Re-purposing Old CDs

 Awhile back someone on my Facebook posted this link that had a fun idea for re-purposing old CDs. I loved it so much I sat down and did it that afternoon! With the holiday craziness I am just now getting around to posting it, but it has been done for a few weeks. I had all of these items on hand so this made for an easy project and it looks really great when it's done. When I was pregnant with my first two boys, I painted wooden letters that spelled their names and strung them above their cribs.  I hadn't gotten around to doing anything like that for Isaiah yet so I decided to make this project for his room. So far I haven't punched holes in them but they are propped on his shelf and still look really good. Here's how mine turned out:

First I traced the CDs onto some card stock in the colors I wanted

Added some modge podge to CD, covered both sides with card stock, modge podged again to add letters

Finished project - Plain but cute!
