New Crafts

So I tried something that I've wanted to do for a while now. Making bowls from records. I know it's been done before...a lot...but it's still way fun! Especially since the Salvation Army down the street sells old crappy records for .25. So here's what it did!

I picked an awesome record. How amazingly retro is that label?! Plus My Fair Lady is a great movie. Rent it and educate yourself.


Record went on top of an oven safe pot/bowl and then on a cookie sheet. We turned the pan upside down because the bowl was short and we thought it might melt on the sheet.

Tada! After taking it out, I just put it in another bowl and smoothed it out as best I could. I think it looks pretty kickin for a first attempt. Here are the others:


Hooray!

Definitely fun times if you've got some crappy records and a few minutes to spare. We're getting a lot of ideas from this too, so hopefully I'll get back on the ball with writing often.

Great job, guys! If we ever find that box in the basement with all our records, I'll save some of 'em for you!

I think my fella would have a fit if he saw these! He's a big vinyl lover and collector. If they were scratched up beyond repair though, I think he'd forgive you!

I quite like the wavey sides, they're pretty. Did it make your kitchen smell?
