Do you have an old LP/record, but no player? Make this unique and stunning cuff bracelet for next to nothing!

Approximate Time: 30 minutes




  1. Heat oven to 200 degrees F.

  2. Place LP/record on baking sheet.

  3. Heat in oven for 8 minutes.

  4. Wearing oven mitts, take out the record and cut a portion into a rectangle about 6 inches long x 3 inches wide. (you have about one minute to cut until record needs to be reheated.)

  5. If needed, reheat for four minutes each time and cut rectangle into a shape that is widest in the middle, and tapers to blunt ends.

  6. Once shape has been reached, reheat for another four minutes and take out.

  7. While it is cooling for the one minute, bend the shape into a cuff shape around your wrist (it will be hot, but not painful).

  8. Hold into desired shape until completely cooled.

  9. Turn off oven.

  10. Get string, hemp, or cord, and wrap over and over around the middle of the cuff; knot and leaving small tails hanging.

  11. Take old pendants/beads/drops, and attach their jumprings onto various places of the string, creating a beautiful and unique bracelet for next to nothing!

  12. Wear out on the town, give to a dear friend, or sell for about $80!

These are beautiful! Can you tell me what you use to cut them...saw/knife? Is is soft enough to prevent shattering, or is that still a risk in the cutting phase?

Thanks for posting!

Way better than a popcorn bowl! Makes me wish I had kept all those colored 45's!

Great and unique idea but my concern is the toxic side of things when the vinyl plastic is heated. I don't think I would want to cook in the oven after using it for this project, might be an idea to check the safety of this further.
