Is it ‘old school’ now days to burn my own CD’s from my music collection? You see, whilst I do buy all my tracks from Google Music I still like to download it and burn it to a CD so I can play it in the car. I don’t have a posh car so all it has is a CD player in it. But now I seems to be getting quite a collection of empty plastic CD/DVD Spindles, so what I need is some ideas about what I can do with them, so I thought I would find out what I think is…

Empty Disk Spindles Turned into Cable Organizer

10 – Become Wireless!

Why not use the disk spindles natural shape and use them to store old wires from various PC’s and and other electrical items. Not a bad thing at all because placing wire curled up in the lid of a spindle with keep it tangle free and then locking the bottom bit will it hold it there for when you need them! This is a recycling master class.

Empty Disk Spindles Turned into Hamster Wheel

9 – Race Time!

Why not put a few holes in the top of it and turn it into a Hamster run wheel!? This is the work of pure genius and I think the hamster would find it fun as long as it was able to run perfectly forward and it was dust free. Just a shame I don’t have a hamster.

8 – The Spindle Green House

This is a strange one for you, apparently by turning a old CD spindle case into a mini propagator you can grow some succulents in just a few days! Keeping the lid on (with a few air holes) and only taking it off to water them now and again make for the perfect little desk green house! Recycling and DIY office garden, not a bad idea at all.

While I don’t wear earnings myself I thought I would include this idea because it makes great use of the original shape of the spindle and by placing the lid back on to it would become a portable jewellery box as well! Great recycling and a fantastic idea.

6 – Wet Wet Wet

Singing your CD’s in the shower is a right of passage! So why not use the spindle to make a DIY shower head. If your own shower end it broken this just might be a great idea, but as there is no guide on how to do it, I suspect it is not as easy as it looks.

While I do consider myself a nerd I am not clever enough to really understand what a  Raspberry PI is, but this idea of using an old CD case to house it is a great idea nonetheless, even if I don’t understand it.

If you like to have a cheeky biscuit or cookie with your high tea then why not turn those CD spindles into a decorative container that has the handy feature of locking when you don’t need to present the them! This is a real showcase on how creative people can be.

  1. I think the one I thought best is the Hamster wheel. How cool. What made me visit was Nadine’s mention of you and that candle light conversion. I’ve seen the bagel one before but as an artist I like the jewelry stand as it can be useful for presenting creations at a fair.
