Here is a cheap way to build a mini disco ball and recycle those annoying AOL CD's at the same time! Watch my (Kipkay) video and see it all come together!

Step 1: What You Need...

1. A bunch of useless internet CD's, like the AOL CD's you get in the mail.
2. A Small styrofoam ball
3. A glue gun and scissors
4. Fishing line or thread
5. A wooden skewer or coat hanger

Step 2: Say Bye Bye to the CD's...

Cut 'em up into small random square shapes...

Step 3: You Should Cut Up a Whole Lot...

Careful...these can be sharp...

Step 4: Putting It All Together...

Start hot glueing the pieces to the styrofoam ball. Work your way around until it is completely covered. Then using the skewer or coat hanger, run a hole through the middle, run some thread through the hole and either tie a big knot in the end or hot glue a button on the end. Hang it up and fire up your disco records! Have fun!

i agree

Kinda sounds like an infomercial...but not constantly saying BUY BUY BUY!!!
i agree
Shine lasers at it.
Nice idea. Sure it's tedious and time consuming, but you don't need extravagant utensils. I'm gonna give it a try.
go full size and leave the CD's whole. now that;s a big disco ball

why does your cat always come out in your videos
cute cat.
Nice! Good use of old useless CD's , but disco still sucks !
These mirror balls were all the rage back in the 1930's and 40's when Big Band music was in vogue. Invite your grandparents over, set up the mirror ball with some colored lights, play some Glenn Miller CD's, and watch the nostalgia bloom.
i seen this somewhere i think it was one of those stop the aol cd pages er whatever, but you did a better job at describing it and doing it. very kewl
l33t d00d. I decided I hated the overhead light in my room, and I've wanted to replace it with a disco ball for some time. :D
I might make one of these for my locker at school. Thanks
Great idea! Cute kitty, too!
Awesome idea! I'm always trying to figure out something to do with my old CDs, but the reflective surface isn't a good enough mirror to make a laser pointer projector (I don't think(. This makes a great weekend project.
