Quilted CD Ornaments



Here's another idea for using up old CDs! Make these quilted CD ornaments to hang on your tree with these Christmas craft patterns and no one will ever know you have CDs hanging from your branches.

Quilted CD Ornament


  • 4 different types of fabric: 8 2" squares of Xmas print/color (first row); 16 2" squares of different Xmas print/color (second row); 16 2" squares of another different Xmas print/color (third row); 16 2" squares of yet another different print/color (fourth row).
  • Old CD
  • Tacky Glue
  • Metallic Christmas trim
  • String
  • Pins


  1. Get one 2" square from the first row of print/color right side down, and fold in half, pressing with your finger nail, like this:
  2. Then in half again, like this:

  3. Open it up, and then fold one of the sides to the median crease, to create a triangle, like this:

  4. And then do the same for the other side, like this:

  5. You'll have one bigger triangle formed by two small triangles. Now it's time to apply some glue. Open up the folded triangle and apply a little bit of glue; like this:

  6. Fold it back and press with your fingers.

  7. You are now ready to start the quilting on your Cd. Turn the already glued triangle face down and apply a bit of glue on the back, like this:

  8. Glued it with the point facing the center of the Cd, like this:

  9. Repeat the procedure for the remaining 3 squares of the first print/color, like this:

  10. Now the first row is completed. You are now going to fold the eight 2" squares for the second row the exact same way, and repeat the same procedures, like this:

  11. Try to align the central fold of the triangles in every row.

  12. You can already see the first star showing. Repeat the same thing for the third

    and for the fourth rows.

    And now you see the four stars.
  13. You have one side of the Cd almost finished. Turn it around, and repeat everything the same way for the other side.

  14. Your quilted Cd Xmas ornament is almost done, but not completely. Now is time to hide the messy parts and make it look really pretty! Start by trimming any bit of fabric that might be hanging out the Cd borders. Then apply some glue all around the edge.

  15. Start by gluing the string and then the trim, covered by the trim, like this:

  16. Secure with pins till is totally dried and secure.

  17. Once it's dried, do the other side. Let it dry.

At last a fantastic idea for unwanted CDs. Thank you.

This one is really cute! I love it. I was thinking that a quilter can easily make other designs too. I'm not a quilter but I would like to try doing some in a "log cabin" design. Thanks for sharing this idea! :)

My daughter and I made these and they turned out beautifully! I was afraid they wouldn't look like the pictured ornaments, but the directions were excellent and they looked even better than I'd hoped!

I made these folded star crafts in the 80's. I put them in embroidery hoops and hung on wall as picture. It's a good way to use smaller pieces of fabric.

Hi dholemanres 7383844, It might be something with your printer settings. Make sure it's set to print all the pages. -Editors of FaveCrafts
