The DIY bowl from a record is a definite oldie-but-goodie craft project. I made some for Erin’s 80’s Prom Night Birthday Party so I thought why not share the details in case you hadn’t heard. These make great inexpensive party decor, take like 4 minutes to make, and cost 10 cents each.

How to Make Record Bowls
1. Gather some records you never want to listen to again. Place one record on top of a ceramic (oven-safe) bowl. Put it in the oven at about 350 degrees.
Let it sit there for about five minutes. You’ll see it starting to wilt.
2. Take it out and push the record into the bowl then adjust it till you like the way it’s folding.
Oddly enough, the record won’t really be too hot, I was able to adjust my record folds with my bare hands (of course, i recommend being logical and wearing an oven mitt):
Let it cool. Take it out. Done.
Fill with treats!
bubblegum is especially cute!
