A pal had a bunch of plant clippings she was wanting to get rid of at a yard sale. With not having any excess planters, she made her own planters with record albums she no longer wanted or needed. She melted the albums into shapes of planters, with the center hole being the bottom drain hole. Clever idea! One idea I'd never thought of before!

To turn records into planters, cover an oven safe bowl, or flowerpot with foil. Place it on a cookie sheet upside down with a record on top. Oven at 250 degrees, record will soften and drape down over the bowl. Keep an eye on it.

We just made bowls out of record this Christmas. We used a 200 degree oven and placed a pyrex bowl inverted on top of a cookie sheet. watch carefully and when the record begins to droop, work quickly to get it into the shape you want. If you don't like the shape, remelt it! There was no smoke although it did smell a little funky (we kept the windows open.)

Great idea but does it smell and smoke?

I read that you can melt them in the oven at 200 degrees if you place them on a bowl upside down. You probably would want to put a baking sheet under it that is lined with foil. Hope this helps.
