Mandala Record Bowls





Hello the holidays are here! You know you need something to be a center piece or to hold decorations so why not try Mandala Record Bowls?! I know we have all seen the bowls made out of vinyl records before but these have some panache! They colors and designs are hand painted on there. Mandala offers a variety of colors and designs. I am in love with these record bowls. I am not going to lie they are a tad pricey but I completely think the record bowls are worth it for their design and craftsmanship! Click here to get your very own Mandala Record Bowl now!

About:Carnation Pink Mandala Record Bowls are created from recycled 12″ vinyl records. The “platters from the past” are upcycled with fresh acrylic paint and an original Eye Pop Art mandala design which is painted freehand with glossy highlights.

The record bowls are hand painted in original psychedelic patterns, heated, and lovingly sculpted into uniquely organic, flower-like forms. The spindle holes are filled so the bowls are water tight and functional. Semi-gloss polyurethane is used to finish to protect the paint and make the bowls food safe. The original record labels intact (and also sealed with polyurethane) on the bottom of each bowl – which record will YOU get?

Eye Pop Art bowls are fantastic for holding fruit, candy, candles, trinkets, or anything your heart desires. They are bright, colorful art objects to set on your coffee table. They are eco-friendly and make a great conversation piece! Surprise your guests when you tell them to flip the bowl over and see the very interesting recycled material that it was made from!

Most of us have fond memories of the days when all we listened to was records – let the music live forever with a Mandala Record Bowl.

Mandala Record Bowls by Christine Claringbold are hand painted with original designs using high quality acrylic paints, then heated and lovingly sculpted into unique organic, flower-like forms. The artist has sealed up the spindle hole to make the bowl water tight and functional. The entire bowl, as well as the original record label on the bottom of the bowl, has been sealed with a glossy finish.

Made from a recycled 12″ vinyl record, the finished size is about 10″ in diameter and 3″ deep (about 25.4 cm in diameter and 7.62 cm deep).

Product Notes:
– Hand wash gently with a damp cloth, air dry. Please do not put in the dishwasher, oven, or microwave!

Make Your Old Trays Look New

Collectors Serving Tray

Collectors Serving Tray



I love this idea! I happen to think that serving trays add a touch of class to any environment even if they are just purely decorative. I like even more that you won’t have to go out and buy one you can make your own out of an old serving tray you want to spruce up or if you find an unfinished one you can now make it your way.


Old Serving Tray (or new unfinished tray)
Collectible Cards, Magazine Cut outs or Playing Cards
Eco-Friendly Crafting Glue
Eco-Friendly Spray Adhesive
Clear Gloss EZ paint (an eco-friendly spray paint, if you have clear gloss spray paint at home any will do)
Crafty odds and ends you have been holding on to.


1. If you have an unfinished wood tray make sure it is sanded and smooth before starting to decorate.
2. Find your decorations. Whether you have playing cards, collectible cards (I would kind of like to see one done in Garbage Pail Kids cards lol). Try to plot out your decorating placement and strategy before gluing anything to the tray to make sure it looks right and fits together nicely.
3. Once you have decided on placement you can move on to gluing your items to the tray with the eco-friendly crafting glue (You can use hot glue or anykind of glue you have at home. The point is to use what you already have at home and not buy more.)
4. After everything is glued and has set for 10-15 minutes, spray the entire tray with spray adhesive just to make sure everything is secured to the tray. This also helps if you have glues gems or anything that isn’t completely flat onto the tray.
5. Once you have let the spray adhesive set for another 10 minutes or so you can begin to spray the tray with the clear gloss spray paint. I suggest multiple coats only because you plan on washing this item repeatedly after uses and you want to make sure you can keep the tray looking pretty and lasting as long as possible.
