To celebrate my birthday, which was yesterday, my friends and I had planned a girl's night. However, we never quite got to the mani's and pedi's we had planned... We had been talking about my redecorating efforts, and my friend Ariel brought up the idea of record bowls. Of course, my room mate and I were all for it, and figured we had plenty of time to go get all of the necessary items to make them. After running into the thrift store at 8.30 pm, which was closing time, we grabbed our records for $.25 a piece and hurried back home. Following are the steps that we took to get our final product:
1: Preheat oven to 200-250 Degrees.
2: Place oven proof bowl (or jar or another object to achieve the shape you want) on a cookie sheet with the record placed on top. (Bowl can be right side up or upside down, depending on the shape that you would like to achieve.)
4. Take cookie sheet out of oven and mold record, if needed. Make sure to use a hot pad or oven mit, because the record will be hot!
5. Let the record harden around the object, which should only take a few minutes, and then remove it.
6. Voila! You have your very own Vinyl Record Bowl.
Here's what we came up with. This is a great, easy project that ANYONE can do!!
P.S. If you don't like the shape of your bowl, simply reheat it in the oven and mold it to the desired shape.
