CD Spinners

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

These patriotic tops spin so well, you'll think they've declared independence from the laws of physics. They make festive Fourth of July party favors.


  • Old CD
  • Large shooter marble
  • Glue, glue stick, or hot glue
  • Design templates
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Plastic bottle cap


CD Spinners - Step 1

1. For each top, set a large shooter marble into the hole of an old CD, securing it with a generous amount of glue. We used Crafter's Pick The Ultimate, which works well for joining nonporous materials, but you can use hot glue for quicker results.

2. To re-create our top designs, print out the templates, color them in with markers, and cut them out (cut out the center holes too). Flip over the CD and adhere the template to it with glue or a glue stick.

3. For the handle, attach a plastic bottle cap to the center of the CD with Ultimate glue or hot glue. If you use Ultimate glue, let it dry overnight before taking your top for a spin.
