So I made this for my 12 Days of Christmas partner, and she's opened now, so I figured I would post.

She likes movies, and so I thought I would make her a set of coasters!  I used DVDs I picked up at the dollar store for this project.  Ideally the next time I do this I will just be reusing/recyling DVDs that no longer work. 

I used cork on the bottoms of them, and I used the non-skid plastic like quilters use on their rulers over the top of the DVDs to make them a little more glass-friendly.



Also the next time I do this, I will be cutting out the center holes so that I can use a CD spindle as a coaster holder. 

What do you think?

I think it's a great idea! If I can find some cheap DVD's I might try them as a quick gift!

What a great idea.  And I love the idea of using the CD spindle as a coaster holder.

What a wonderful idea!  I wish I had thought of this before I threw away all those unwanted/scratched DVDs last month!  Definitely bookmarking this!

Awww!  Thank you!  I'm fairly certain I've never been bookmarked before!

This is great!  I wanted to make a few gifts for my husband this year and we have a bunch of really scratched up dvds that I didn't know what to do with!  I think he'd like this a lot...and the dollar store dvds will be a fantastic addition since I don't have a whole lot already that I can use.  Neat idea!  Thanks!!

I'm glad it'll be useful! 

To be honest, when I bought the DVD's at the dollar store I was afraid the discs themselves would be pretty plain, so I was fully prepared to have to print my own CD lables for them and make up my own movie titles. 

So that's another idea for y'all!  =0)

Luckily I was pleasantly surprised that the discs were all pretty visually interesting on these.

This is one of the coolest ideas I've ever seen! You're amazing -- and using a spindle for a coaster holder is genius. Really great, I'm totally making these! Thanks for sharing Smiley

I'm not familiar with the non-skid plastic you mention -- does it have a brand name?

I found it sold by the roll at Joann's by the quilting notions.  I don't have the package anymore, sorry.   Sad  It's kind of the same feel as... do you remember color-forms?  Kind of like that.

I'll do some surfing to see if I can find more info.
