Thrifty to Nifty: How To Make a Record Bowl

These record bowls are becoming more and more popular, so I decided I’d show you guys how to make a bunch of your own to use for, well, whatever you feel they can be used for. I’ll be selling most of mine for about three bucks and using the ones I don’t sell as displays for my goodies.


A record

An oven-safe bowl (glass or metal)

A baking sheet


Hit up the thrift store for some cheap records.

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees.

Take your oven-safe bowl and place it on your baking sheet. Place the record with the center on the back of the bowl.

Put into the oven for 4 minutes. Check to make sure the record has begun to warp. You can leave the record in for up to 8 minutes. Once your record has reached a desirable level of warp, remove it from the oven using oven mitts and mold to a desirable shape with the mitts still on.

Voila! You now have a record bowl! Allow it to cool for several minutes. Then give it a quick scrub with some damp paper towels and you’re ready to use it for storage and organization or for decoration.


  1. OK I LOVE THIS. I'm retarded and had never seen or heard of record bowls but I definitely want to try this now!
