DIY CD Stones Placemat

Hello again,

Previously i made stones placemat using hot glue and i wasn’t that satisfied with it, so i thought to try it with crafts glue. Though i wasn’t sure if crafts glue will stick and hold the stones on the CD, but it did, and it worked better than the hot glue.

So i took a CD, chose the stones i wanted to stick to the CD, and started gluing them on the CD. I had to be very careful while gluing the stones because they would still move, but on the other hand it was good for me it made it easier for me to adjust them.

After gluin all the stones, i poured glue in the empty holes showing between the stones to fill them up and cover them. I let the stones try for 3 days just to make sure the glue has dried completely and you will know it when the CD is not soft and flexible anymore.

And finally it’s ready, i tested it by putting my glass tea pot on it, and the stones did not come out or moved from pots heat and it remained hard.

to give it a shiny look, you can apply a soft layer of craft glue on the stones or diluted with water.
