CD Mosaic Frames

Make a fun mosaic frame from old CDs! This is a great project to let the teen or tween in your house frame up those Kodak moments. Crystal over at the Make it Easy Crafts blog, cut up old CDs and glued them to a papier-mâché frame bought at a craft store. You could also use any frame with a flat front. “Puffy” or dimensional paint fills in the cracks. Crystal used black paint for a classic look, but you could use any color, even one to match your teen’s bedroom. Check out the full tutorial over at the Make it Easy Crafts blog.
