Top 10 DIY Unique Vinyl Records Recycle

If you still own your vinyl records, don’t you even think about throwing them away!
In case you don’t listen to music from them anymore, and they are only collecting dust in the basement, we are giving you some inspirational ideas that will encourage you to find a way how to make good use of the once-popular vinyl records.

Nowadays it is rare for someone to be listening to records on record players, so instead of throwing the excess away (even though there are a lot of rare old vinyl records from the 50s , 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s), use them to make art, holders, bowls, clocks, something you can use in everyday life and give your home a unique look.
We give you 10 ideas, so we hope you like them and give them a try!
