Create your own record bowl

Record Candy Bowls (Under $1 and less than 30 minutes)

Record bowls are great for Halloween candy but can be the perfect statement piece or gift item for the music lover.  This repurposed project only requires a baking sheet, bowl, oven and record. Goodwill has hundreds of records for about $1 a piece. I picked up five and created these great bowls in an afternoon.

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees. Once your temperature is set, place your bowl upside down with the record on top of the bowl. As the record melts it will curve into the bowl. Bake your record for 20-25 minutes. When the timer goes off you have about two seconds until it dries. Quickly take your melted record and place into a sizeable bowl to dry. If the record isn’t soft enough to conform to the bowl, just place back into the oven to soften. It’s just that easy!
