DIY Recycled CD Cases into Wall Art

DIY Recycled CD Cases: Wall Art

Materials You Will Need:
  •          20 Clear CD cases
  •          Computer
  •          Photoshop
  •          A favorite Photo
  •          Scissors

Step 1:
         Open up your favorite photo in Photoshop. Make sure the picture you choose is high-resolution, otherwise your picture will turn out grainy and blurry. Resize the picture to 26½" x 18¼". Using a selection tool, divide the image into twenty 5 3/8" x 4 5/8" squares, then digitally cut and paste each square into a separate 5 3/8" x 4 5/8" file.

Step 2:
         Print out each document onto 5" x 7" photo paper. Trim off any white space.

Step 3:
         Slide each square picture into a CD case. Line them all in order, forming your picture once again.

Step 4:
         Hang on the wall in any way you want. Enjoy your new wall décor! J
