#NUO2013 Mirrored Ornaments

I can’t believe it’s the last day of the Series already! Here’s one more ornament to keep your tree from being ugly. Around Pinterest I kelp seeing mirrored ball but I wanted to try something a little flatter. So I created these Mirrored Letter Ornaments. They’re super easy and cheap, plus they give you an excuse to demolish any old CDs sitting around!


  • old CDs
  • old scissors – I say old but what I mean is a pair you don’t mind destroying
  • glue ( I know I have glitter glue shown but I ended up using a white crafting glue)
  • black puffy paint
  • cardstock

I started off by printing some of our family initials onto cardstock in a big bubble letter font and cutting them out. Be sure to use a hole punch to make a hole to hang your ornament!

Next, I cut up a few CDs, this wasn’t easy and I had pieces flying everywhere! I might try cutting them with an X-acto knife next time. After I had a good handful of little mirrored pieces I started gluing them to the cardstock letters.

Finally I used the puffy paint to outline the pieces and give them more of a stained glass look. You can repeat the process on the back or just paint it black. String them up and you’re ready to go!

Be sure to check back tonight for the last wrap-up of the week AND next week look for the ultimate Christmas ornament round-up!


  1. This is a GREAT idea! I have a TON of old, used CD's that I don't use and the hoarder in me just can't bring myself to throw them away! LOL! Now I know something useful I can do with them. Thank-you Erin for the inspiration!
