Craft a halloween luminaire in less than 60 seconds by using CD cases

Here's a simple and quick way to upcycle your old cd cases.
Turn them into halloween luminaires


Supplies:
  • 2 empty cd cases
  • halloween window clings or
  • halloween silhouette ( I printed mine from here )
  • glue gun
  • tea light ( children can use the luminaire as a night light if you use the battery powered tea lights like I did)




Instructions:  Remove cd inserts.  Glue sides together to create a box.  Apply your window clings or silhouette.  Insert a tea light in the middle of the luminaire.



Now that I've finished playing, I'm off to do my chores which includes grocery shopping. Eeeek is right!
Cheers,
