Don’t throw out those old CDs and DVDs just yet! Instead, turn them into a fun game that keeps everyone entertained, even the grown ups! Make it a contest to see which spinner stays going the longest. Part of the fun is decorating them however you like.
I have to admit, I was playing with these. Yes, I was. They just keep going and going, I really couldn’t believe how long they kept spinning! And with the different designs, they looked pretty cool spinning around and around.
I made these for Michaels Craft Stores via DecoArt using the CraftSmart line of paint. I actually use CraftSmart quite a bit, and it’s the perfect paint for kid’s projects!
I started by sanding the shiny side of the DVD, just to knock off the finish.
Next I painted a coat of white. I always do this to give darker items a base coat. That way when the color goes on, it’s not as difficult to cover.
I used some neon colors for these. Fun!
Here’s a video of them spinning to give you a demonstration!
