Weekend Project: Make A Greenhouse From Old CD Cases

If you were a consumer in the ’80s or ’90s, you probably have a large collection of software/music CD cases that you’ve been planning to get rid of. Instead of adding yet another layer of plastic to your local landfill, why not do something positive for the environment and build a green house instead?

DIY homeware site MegaCrafty has an exhaustive set of instructions on how you can turn your old CD cases into a miniature green house complete with a hinged roof.

    Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
  • A minimum of 40 old CD cases
  • Plastic Glue that dries clear
  • Painter’s tape
  • Safety glasses
  • Tweezers
  • [clear] [clear]
    “You’ll also need a craft knife, ruler and cutting board, and a large flat surface (that can get a bit of glue on it) for the cases to lay on while drying,” explains the author.

    “The toughest part about the whole project is cutting the cases into angles- and even that’s not really hard to do, it just takes some patience. The rest of the project is just gluing!”

    You can get the full step-by-step guide over at Megacrafty’s website. There’s also a stack of other fun DIY projects ranging from felt toys for the kiddies to various food recipes.
