Curtain Pull Backs From Old CD/DVDs


Curtain Pullbacks From Old DVDs or CDs

Want a super creative way to hold back your curtains? Well, here it is! It’s an upcycle project that uses an old CD and a chopstick (or a dowel.) Decorate them with some ribbon, artificial flowers and a glue gun and you can make them match any color scheme you like.

Note: These work best for thinner curtains or sheers. I found that the  CD’s will bow and possibly break if you try to jam too much material in them though some CD’s are stronger than others.

Visual Tutorial

Trace a circle in the center of the CD. The size does not have to be exact. I used a regular size vegetable can for tracing.

Using a sharp utility knife cut out the circle. This required going over and over the lines as the CD is fairly thick. It does NOT have to be a smooth even cut.

Pop out the center part that you cut with the knife.

Glue on flowers of choice. Use a chopstick to attach to curtain. A thin dowel painted would also work.
