Vinyl Record Bowl Instructions

This is an easy recycled craft that you can make in 20 minutes or less. It makes a hip container for that small potted plant that you are planning to give someone as a gift this Christmas.

Warning: Make sure you do this in a well ventilated area to avoid inhaling fumes. Open windows and make sure the fan is on in your kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • record that you no longer care about
  • oven safe bowl (approx. 9" across the top)
  • cookie sheet

Directions:

Preheat oven 200 degrees F. Place Bowl upside down on the cookie sheet place record on top of the bowl. Once oven is preheated place in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

Now the record should be soft enough to mold, and cool enough to touch but use pot holders at first, just to be safe. The bowl and cookie sheet will be much hotter than the vinyl. Turn the bowl right side up and place the record in side it, and mold until you got the shape you want. You only have about a minute to work with it, so work fast. If it is not just right put it back in the oven for a few more minutes and try again.

Once it has completely cooled it is ready to use. It took less than five minutes for mine to cook completely. What for you may ask?

  • fruit bowl

  • a place to put your keys
  • a decoration
  • a gift

* Notice to pet owners: hair sticks to this very easily. Simply just wipe it down with a wet cloth.

I have made these with 33 rpm and 45 rpm records; they make great bowls for chip and dip and other uses. I made ice cream sundae bouquets (with flowers) in plastic parfait glasses and set them on these record bowls; it was a cute addition to a birthday party; each child received an ice cream sundae bouquet.

You can also use the same method with scratched CD's or DVD's.
