How to Make a Vinyl Record Magazine Holder


Vinyl records may not be considered the most efficient or highest quality way to listen to your favorite music these days, but that does not mean that they don’t still have their place. Since they have such a distinctive look and feel, they are great to put to use in many ways around the home. Vinyl records are a symbol that music lovers everywhere can identify with, even if they do not or have never owned a record player. Try converting your old stack of LPs into a magazine holder—especially perfect for your music magazine collection.

Things You'll Need

  • Vinyl record
  • Narrow cardboard box
  • Heavy pan or bowl
  • Baking sheet
  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

  • Cover a narrow cardboard box completely with aluminum foil. The box should be approximately 3 ½” wide by 10” long.

  • Place your foiled box in your preheated oven. Set your vinyl record centered over the box.

  • Cook for eight to 10 minutes.

  • Carefully remove your box and record and place on a cooking sheet. The record should have melted around your box, but it might look a little wavy. It will need to be reheated so that the sides lay flat.

  • Turn your box on its side with the record still wrapped around it. Weigh down one side of the record with a heavy bowl or pan so that it will melt as flat as possible against the side of the box.

  • Put back into the oven and heat for another eight to 10 minutes.

  • Remove the record from the oven with potholders and let harden into shape before removing the box.

  • Once cooled, slide your magazines into the center of your holder.
