DIY Record Soda Labels

Materials you’ll need to make the Record Soda Labels:

Round Labels — Mine are 3″. You can purchase these at a paper or office supply store.
Letter Stickers — These can also be purchased at an office supply store.
Markers — Black and your desired color for the center of the record, if you’re labels are white.
Old Fashioned Soda Bottles — Labels soaked and removed

Instructions

Start by coloring you label black, leaving a small circle in the center uncolored. My labels were already a color so I left the center as is. But if you are using white labels, use a second color to color in the the center of the record.

Use your letter stickers to spell out “Rad Dad” or another message on the record. I recommend starting with the middle letters and working your way out to make sure everything is even and centered!
