An empty or used empty CD case can be turned into a beautiful art or craft project. There are many creative ideas to try. For this blog post, I’m choosing to feature a CD case Christmas craft.
Follow me on Pinterest for more creative ideas.
Supplies To Collect
Gather the following for this seasonal craft:
- clear CD jewel case
- thin unpainted wood holiday decoration
- festive cardstock
- acrylic craft paint
- glue stick
- white glue or glue gun
- craft bits: pony beads, holiday confetti, garland strips, sequins, punched paper snowflakes
Assembling The CD Case Christmas Craft
Carefully remove the tray from a clear CD case.
Trim the cardstock pattern of choice to the size of the case.
With the case open, use a glue stick to adhere the cut cardstock to the bottom right section.
Paint a thin holiday-themed wood decoration with acrylic paint and let it dry. The paint and decoration can easily be found at dollar stores.
Note: Acrylic paint dries quickly and comes in a large variety of colors. It’s so fun to use!
Glue the painted wood shape to the cardstock.
Add craft bits of choice.
Close the case snugly.
Display on a shelf or wall in the classroom or your home.
Tips: The craft bits can be glued down so they are stationary or left movable.
If desired, add a clear seal to keep the CD case closed.
You may wish to make this CD case Christmas craft in a variety of holiday and winter themes. The craft lends itself to being showcased in groups.
Of course, little learners can get in on making this creative craft. The activity could be a cooperative one for a parent/teacher/caregiver and child.
CD Case Christmas Blocks
Instead of displaying the crafted CD jewel cases, include them on a table with blocks for little learners to use in construction play. This is an idea I look forward to exploring in the future.
