How to Turn a CD Spindle into a Light

Kayte over on Craftstylish went all MacGyver-y and turned a CD spindle into a decorative light. This one involves electricity, so care should be taken, but other than that....easy peasy! To make one of your own, you'll need to assemble the following:

  • an empty CD spindle
  • a small handsaw
  • 6 feet of electrical cord
  • wire strippers or a small sharp scissors
  • a plug
  • a socket
  • a rotary light switch
  • a screwdriver
  • electrical tape
  • a chandelier-type bulb
  • transparency paper
  • a printer
  • an X-Acto knife and cutting mat
  • spray adhesive
  • and tissue paper

To see the entire process, follow this jump to Craftstylish.
