Day 3: Use CDs as Candle Holders

Welcome to Day 3 of my 12 Days of Christmas.

Today’s project is another simple easy DIY project with items you probably already have around the house.


I chose to paint my CD’s with silver spray paint that I had left over from another project, because I wasn’t planning on using the CD for any other purpose- like music- you could leave them as is and they would still look great.


The hardest part of this project for me was waiting for the paint to dry – you see it’s been below zero lately in my neck of the woods and spray paint doesn’t do well in that type of temperature – so I ran outside, did a quick coat of paint and had to take them inside to dry…down to the basement, under a heat register AND I had to open a window for ventilation and the smell … I know I’m not the only impatient crafter out there, am I?

I did a few “dress ups” with my candles and displayed them in various places around the house for photo opps – here are the results.



Pretty simple, right?

Using CD’s as candle holders – It’s A Wandaful Thing.
