Seems like everyone is saving CDs and using them for crafts. We had 100's of responses -- many for suncatcher, mobiles and ornaments. Our favorite suggestion for this disco ball submitted by Kellie of Fayetteville AR. We also have posted several other ideas including an ornament and a picture frame. Here they are!
