DIY Vinyl Record Bowls

Vinyl Record PlayerHere’s something I’ve been thinking about making for ages and since I am moving house once again I thought I would take advantage of having some space and freedom before being re-incarcerated into a house share again 🙁

So DIY Record Bowls made with old vinyl records and they are easy to make, all you need is some old vinyl records, an oven, and something ovenproof for the record to stand on. Vinyl Record Bowls

  1. Preheat your oven to about 150 C.
  2. Place an ovenproof bowl or mug on a baking tray and place the record on top. Remember that the label facing down when you put the record in the oven is the label you will see at the bottom of the bowl when it’s done.
  3. Leave it in the oven for a few minutes until the record has gone all floppy.  Remove from the oven (careful as the record will be quite warm) and quickly shape with fingers.  You only have a few seconds before it cools down too much, but you can always put it back in the oven again.  As well as shaping it with your fingers you can take the floppy record and squish it into a glass or ceramic bowl to shape it and then leave to cool.
