Wall clock reusing a vinyl record

DO IT YOURSELF

If you still have vinyl records and you don't use them anymore for listening music don't throw them away. You can reuse them and make a dozen of functional or decorative projects. One of our favorite projects is the retro style wall clock. For this project we reused a Rolling Stones vinyl record.

Make a decorative bowl out of a vinyl record

DO IT YOURSELF

Make a decorative bowl or fruit bowl recycling old vinyl records. Vinyl is a plastic material that melts at high temperatures. So, if a vinyl record is placed in a hot oven or left under the sun, it will melt and become flexible. When it is still hot, you can shape the record with your hands. Please, keep in mind that the disk will be ruined and will become unplayable. Before, recycling the disc we suggest to check the internet, to make sure that the old disc is not collectible and thus valuable.

Wall full of memories

DO IT YOURSELF

Typically, the interior walls of a house are decorated with painting, landscape photography, embroidery etc. However, a very personal choice is the arrangement of family photos, either old or recent, around the walls of the house. First you need to collect the material, searching for old photos of you family. You might even discover rare photos depicting a historic event, old buildings, folk costumes and other interesting documents. Apart from searching your own archive a good idea is to ask your relatives to search their own.
