Bling Out Your Shirt Collar With An Old CD – Awesome DIY


Hey guys,

I said yesterday that I would share a quick and easy DIY project. Here goes;

What You’ll Need

  • An old CD (with the holographic part still intact)
  • Glue
  • Shirt with collar


1. Cut the CD into little pieces. Mine were a bit large but I think they’ll look better in smaller pieces. If the CD is very difficult to cut, boil some water and soak the CD in in it to make it softer.

2. Apply the glue to the back of each CD piece and place on your shirt collar.

3. Hang the shirt to dry over night.

4.Rock your new blinged out shirt.

You may wanna glue on some stones to really bling it out but since I’ll be wearing it to the office tomorrow, I decided to leave it a bit subtle (if you can call it that).

Can I wash the shirt? I’m not sure for now. If wanna do this differently though, I would file all sharp edges and I would use E6000 glue because it can really hold (and is the best multipurpose glue in my opinion). I’ll let you know how it goes though.

Ok, so I’ve got to run to my salsa class….yay!!! I LOVE SALSA! Period.

I really need motivation for my next project. If there’s anything you would like to have me make, please leave me a comment with the link to the website, blog or picture and I’ll get busy with it ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Please follow my blog for more updates (button to the left) and do remember to share with your friends.

Lots of love,



PS: I first saw this project on Useful DIY. You might wanna check out her method and her other works. Sorry I forgot to include that earlier.
