Overall, this is a creative way to make earrings and repurpose items that could be useless in the house. I love crafts where you can upcycle them into greater things. It’s such a unique way to make a personalized gift that is meaningful. I love gifts that are handmade instead of something expensive and flashy. The time and effort with a handmade gift mean so much more, and I don’t think many people would know these earrings were made from CDs either.
