Dearest minions,

I have recently been really inspired by Susan Wasinger's book Eco Craft which I got out of the library. Not only does it have lush stuff in it, it also has things that you can make make using skills and tools that most crafters have in their stash. As pictured I went all creative with CDs and a crop -a-dile and fishing line. This project has really improved a boring dull dark corner of the garden. Now the CDs turn with the breeze creating discs of light which spin through the garden. In a north facing garden any light is good.

This project is not in the book, but the book did that most important of all things Inspire ideas. I now have even bigger (evil) plans using CDs to take over the world. However unlike Bond villains I am not going to sit down with a cup of Tea and tell all.

So go forth my minions and be inspired.

Great freebie and a cool use of CD's! Altering CD's is great fun but I really like what you did here. Thanks for sharing this idea!

Great use of cd's! I hang mine in the plum-tree to prevent the deers from eating it up when it is in bud.(The shine when they move scares them away) I also hang mine in the window to prevent birds to fly straight into the window. I bet your cd's give such a great shine to your corner!

Simple but great idea I have decorated a couple for my grand-daughters bedroom too but you might think them too pretty pretty maybe but creative anyway
