The sis-in-law and I have been working on a bunch of stuff for the Etsy shop. Yesterday we made these:
Yep, that's a record. Or at least, was. You want one? Here's how. You'll need:
2 bowls, one needs to be oven-safe
Goodwill is an excellent place to look for records. Most of these were 76 cents a piece. And since they're at Goodwill, they're not in the best shape, so I don't feel bad melting them down.
Heat your oven to 400 degrees. Put your oven-safe bowl in, and lay the record on top.
Leave it in there for about 5 seconds, til it's pliable. It WILL be hot, so use your hot mitts when handling it.
While it's still hot and bendable, drape it over your bowl and shape it around. You could also use a large-brimmed glass.
Stick it in the fridge for a couple of minutes to cool it and set it.
And voila! You have a unique, one-of-a-kind decoration.
If you're the instant gratification type and don't feel like hunting for records, we've got some available for sale in our Etsy shop. Go check them out! There's even a red one.
