I see above a link for a bowl. I made one! It's really cool with colored candies like those bright licorice ones w/the pink, blue & yellow with black in it or for nuts & stuff for a party. You could also follow that (bowl) for the heating instructions & fold almost in half to make a wall rack for mail or other paper things to get out of the way & organized. Just drill 2 holes through it at each side - inside on the top & screw it in the wall. Good luck. : D
My son-in-law makes really cool bowls with old LPs. He microwaves them for about 1 minute (until softened but not melted), then carefully drapes them over an upside-down glass bowl and shapes the edges into a wavy pattern. I have several, and they are very durable and a real conversation-starter!
I've bought clock kits and made working (battery operated) clocks with old vinyl records. True vinyl record collectors enjoyed them, but non enthusiasts looked at me rather oddly, with that awkward smile, saying . . . "Oh this is nice," as I realized they were unimpressed! Hope this idea might help you target the ones that will appreciate such an effort! Good Luck!
