Record Fountain, Cake Plate and Bowl

Get Those Old Records Off the Shelf

You can make a ton of projects with old records!!! From fountains, to cupcake plates to room dividers!!! Here's the basics...

Record Bowl

What You Need
1 Record
Pie plate
Gloves, cotton
Liquid Fusion adhesive
Flat item about 2” in diameter (plastic, metal or glass – this is used to cover the hole in the record)
Hot pads

How to Make It
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
2. Turn pie plate upside down. Place record on top. Place in oven for 3-5 minutes. Ovens vary so keep an eye on it. Record is ready when pliable.
3. Wearing gloves and using hot pads, remove from oven and place record inside pie plate to form. Let set until hard. It won’t take very long.
4. Glue flat objects over hole in record. Let dry.
