Mirror mirror on the wall…or shirt! Try this unique do-it-yourself brooch, and make your garment shine with a bunch of them!

All you need is:

- 2 CD‘s.
- For each brooch (we used 25 brooches) one small safety pin or a small brooch pin.
- Hot glue gun.
- Clear nail polish.
- Safety glasses.

Step 1:

Put on safety glasses, and using your scissors cut the CD’s up into triangles and squares.

Step 2:

Paint the clear nail polish over all edges of the cut CD pieces.

Step 3:

Glue safety pins (or brooch pins) with your glue gun to the middle back of the pieces.

Arrange and pin on any garment for a reflective style. You could even fix these to a bag or hat!

Where would you put these brooches?

Happy DIYing!

    Where would I put these? Nowhere. They just look like cut up CDs, sorry guys, but this is super tacky and also they look really sharp!

    You can avoid the need for safety glasses by soaking the CDs in boiling water for a few minutes before handling them. They will be more flexible.
