How To....Make A Vintage Vinyl Record Bowls

This is something fun you can do when on a budget. If you don't already have records at home you can go to a thrift shop and get them for about a dollar or so.

How To Make A... Vinyl Record Bowl

oven gloves

1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.
2. Place the record on top of a large bowl turned upside down and carefully place in the oven.
3. Heat for about five minutes, or until record begins to soften and melt.
4. Wearing oven gloves, quickly remove from the oven. Flip the bowl the right way up and press the record into it so that it takes on the bowl shape. You'll find that the sides will curl in a fluted design.
5. While the record is hot and pliable, you can adjust the shape to your liking. If necessary, reheat for a short time to make adjustments
