How To Upcycle A Record Into A Wrist Cuff


Kim Munro, from The Twisted Crafts, shows us how to upcycle a record into a wrist cuff.  She has has a couple of bonus items in her step by step video tutorial.  The materials and equipment that you need for this tutorial are listed below.

You can visit The Twisted Crafts at EtsyFacebook and the Blog.

Materials
  • A LP record – Kim recommends a record from the 1970’s onwards as older records are thicker and tend to be more difficult to cut and manipulate
  • Some felt – not for the wrist cuff, for another item…
Equipment
  • Heat resistant gloves
  • A glass jar – the circumference of the jar should be slightly bigger than your wrist
  • An old oven tray – we recommend that you use / have a tray dedicated purely for crafting purposes not one that you use for cooking food
  • A large pair of sharp scissors
  • A ring gauge or something that this the same size as your finger – again this is not for the wrist cuff, it’s for another item…
  • An oven pre-heated to 200º
