We recently came across these on Etsy. These bowls made from melted vinyl records were so pretty! The price tag, however, was not as pretty. Since we just happened to have an abundance of albums on hand (and no record player to play them on), we figured we try our hand at it! Although not as elaborate as the ones for sale, we are thrilled with the results.
What you need:
- a vinyl record (we chose one from a 5 album set of Hawaiian music from 1966...no idea why we even had that...)
- a 9" oven-safe bowl
- cookie sheet
- potholders (the bowl and record could get hot, although we found that ours were just fine)
- paint (optional)
