DIY CD necklace Plan B a n n a · e v e r s.

Some time ago I heard that the CD’s about to go out, as we use more and more USB sticks and SD’s … So I decided to do a CD recycling project.

I made a DIY necklace very easy to do and you only need your old CD’s, glue and a base. So let’s recycle!

2. If you prefer, you can make a paper template for trying it before on your neck and then use it on the foam to cut a precise shape.

As you can see, I used CD’s that have different base colors to make a more interesting and bright composition.
