Record Bowls Two Ways

Easy project, only takes a few minutes. My friend Gina told me how to do this, she says the internet told her how. Well now I am telling you. I think this one is best done when the grabby toddlers are napping peacefully, just because there's heat involved and you have to move fast.

turning oven on

baking sheet lined with foil
oven safe bowl
Two bowls- one larger, one smaller
Oven mitts

Scratched up, thrift store records

Preheat your oven to 300. Line a baking sheet with foil. Once oven is hot enough pop a record in and let it bake for 3-5 minutes (most take 3)

When it's done baking, you can grab it with your fingers or with your mitts lay it over the larger bowl and push down with the smaller one.

You're done! Congratulations! If you hate the way it looks put it back in the oven and try again.

Okay the other way~You know all that vintage pyrex you've been collecting? Well dump that salad in a different bowl, wipe in down and pop it in the oven with a record centered on top. After 3-5 minutes it well look like the picture. Take the whole thing out of the oven, please use your mitts so you don't burn your cute little fingers! Once it's cooled (a minute or so) it's ready to be filled with candy or used as a junk catch all.

Someone told me they saw on a craft show where someone made a mail holder out of LP's. I love that idea!
