Now that you use your iPod or other portable audio players, what do you do with your old CDs? You can still use your old CDs by making them into a Recycled CD Necklace. This recycled CD craft is super quick and simple, and all you need is your old CDs, glue, and a base. Use CDs that have a different base color to create more interesting and colorful patterns. You can also use this technique on other accessories like earrings, bracelets, and bags.

This is a truly brilliant idea! I have so many old discs that won't play anymore! Plus my new car doesn't have a CD player in it and I was informed they won't be putting them in cars any longer. So what do you do with boxes of these? I am just so happy I came across this idea before I trashed them!
