When you are creating a DVD, the Mac makes a temporary copy of EVERYTHING you put on it, and then does so AGAIN (and again temporarily) during the actual burning process.

Bottom line: don't burn DVDs unless you have LOTS and LOTS of free space.

Second bottom line: from your post you are CLEARLY too full overall on your hard drive. The proper solution to this problem is an external HD, not burning DVDs. Indeed, why aren't you using Time Machine in the first place?
