Armed with just 3 things (technically), we (mainly I) created this beauty:

CD Art


It’s CD Art!  And it turned out to be one of the simplest art installations I’ve ever done.  Materials:

  1. Canvas (I used a large 4×4 canvas)
  2. CDs
  3. Trusty glue gun

The idea was conceived in my (constantly working) brain, my oldest arranged the CDs, I approved the “design” and got to work attaching the cases.  The best thing is I can still get to the actual CDs if ever I ever wanted to.  The “Next Best Thing” is that no 2 will ever be alike!

CD Art

This is the perfect art installation for game rooms, teen rooms, man caves and of course those who are lucky enough to have a music room!  it would even work in a family room if you love music.

I still have loads of CD left so you know what that means….

  1. Looks really cool! I’m confused, was that an old used canvas, with all the little colorful squares on it? I was just wondering why it wasn’t white? The photo makes it hard to tell what it is, but genius idea!

    1. Hi Elle! Yes it was a canvas that was already being used as art in the room. Rather than buy a new 1, I just reused it! And guess what… if I really want that print back, I could remove the cases (although it would be slow and tedious).
      I have lots of random canvases and hardboards because I can’t leave a good deal in ANY store so the 3 “orders” that people have requested of me will essentially cost $0 (not including the hundreds of dollars for my time!). 😉
