Arts & Crafts – MINI DISCO BALL

You can follow our family on youtube on our many foster-adopt homeschooling adventures

Disco BallWhen Shelby looked at me and said, “Mom, I want disco balls in my room to reflect the morning light”. I just laughed… anyone who knows Shelby knows that she NEVER sees the morning light!! This morning, I had to pull her out of bed at 9am to start school work.

Then, I started thinking…How could I make affordable disco balls for the girls’ room.

Recycled CDs!!! I have a ton of scratched cds and dvds that can not be used anymore. I bought a handful of white Styrofoam balls , cut up a dozen broken cds and started gluing.

For this project, you will need to following:

  • styrofoam balls
  • 1-1/2 cds per styrofoam ball
  • small dowel rod
  • tacky glue (school glue DOES NOT work) – I bought GOOEY GLUE by Darice on sale at Michaels.
  • kitchen shears
  • ribbon
  1. cut dowel rod to fit inside the ball with a 1/2 to 1 inch extra on the top
  2. push the cut rod mostly through the ball, remove, add glue and stick back in.
  3. cut your cd into small pieces with the shears (regular kitchen scissors DO NOT WORK! Are you doubting me? I tried… with 3 different pairs of scissors)
  4. apply tacky glue to the ball and glue on the cd pieces – let dry
  5. add a loop to the top around the rod, then tie a bow with an additional piece.I used hot glue for the top loop and bow.
