It’s time to dig up the old N*SYNC CDs and AOL free trial disks and turn them into beautiful mosaic works of art! I love that this project uses recycled materials to transform an ordinary, boring planter into a shiny, new and beautiful planter!! A true win-win. Pro tip: blank DVD-Rs and blank CDs have a slightly different color tones – notice the purple and the silver in the finished product. Experiment with different colors and gradients! See what we did in the video below, and get inspired to try one out for yourself.
