Here is a way to recycle a vinyl record by melting and turning it into a holding display case for your iPad or tablet. You can also use it for magazines or mail.

Total Time: 15 min



  • vinyl record
  • cooking pan (preferably diameter of record)
  • cookie pan
  • tongs
  • kitchen towel


  1. Find a large vinyl record with little to no market value. Get a pan, preferably the diameter of the record. Tongs as well.
  2. Fill pan with water halfway. When working on stove, wear sturdy shoes in case water splashes. Begin to boil water.
  3. Place record in water slowly so as to not splash. Fold one side and pull out to dry a few seconds. Repeat other side. When molding base use a cookie pan or metal counter to flatten and make sturdy. Remember you can always make adjustments to customize.
    Once done make sure it is completely dry with a kitchen towel and place what you would like.
  4. Enjoy your recycling project. Give as a gift or keep ! :)
