This post gave me a great idea what to do with one of those tins that my parents bought from the Boy Scouts (those giant ones that come filled with flavoured popcorn).  Originally, I was just going to decoupage, but instead I ended up covering it with smashed-up pieces of all the AOL/misburned cds we had around the house that I was loathe to throw away.



becomes....



I really love how it reflects the light in a million colours.  I'm not done yet - I ran out of glue - but I wanted to post anyway Smiley  Thank you guys for your inspiration!

That's so cool! I have a pringles can I'm using to hold my knitting and crochet needles (poked a hole through the plastic lid) and I was trying to decide whether to paint or decoupage it. Now I'm thinking I'll try your cd idea. Love it.

I'm just wondering - does it have sharp edges or have you been able to achieve a smooth-ish finish?  I'd love to do what you've done but I don't want to make something that forever snags or cuts my skin when I'm using it.  Yours looks so good.

The cd pieces are really close together, so the only edge issues are on the top and the bottom.  I haven't cut myself on it...except while assembling Smiley  And there's a bit of a lip on the tin, so the edges are sort of hidden by that (if that makes sense).  I was thinking about putting a bit of fabric or something around the top just in case though.

I'm posting this before I read the preceeding 27 pages, sorry if it's a repeat.  CDs can be shaped like record bowls.  I've done some over a star shaped glass candle holder.  Then they can be hung on a lenght of chain at regular intervals and hung outside to act as a rain chain.

Rain Chains are a beautiful alternative to traditional closed metal or plastic downspouts. They break the fall of the water, guiding it visibly downward onto pebbles, a pot or stone basin. Rain chains sound great!

I copied that off a website and thought it was a great description.

How are these rain chains constructed? What would one use to secure the Cd's to the downspout?  I wonder if they would cause any back-up problems...I already get in some trouble with my Significant Other over my "aesthetic improvements around the house!  This sounds really cool though, are there any pics and can you give me the site that you referred to?  Thanks!
