Add a Little Rock n' Roll to Your Decor!
I am an avid record collector. I LOVE vintage vinyl and I love to craft with vintage records that are either scratched or super cheesy. I snatched up a large lot of vintage 45′s at the flea market. The one’s I loved I have kept for my collection, and then decided to use a few from the craft pile to make these fun record medallions for my sister's graduation party. They are really simple to make, and really fun! You can make a few in just an hour.

  • How to decorate a vinyl record. Diy Upcycled Record Medallions - Step 1
    Step 1

    The first thing you want to do is measure and cut your paper. For the large size(Blue) I cut strips that were 6″ wide, for the medium size(red) I cut 5″ strips and for the small medallions(yellow) I cut strips that were 4.5″ wide.

    You Should now have long strips of paper. Like this red one.

  • Step 3

    Now you are ready to fold your paper. Take one end and fold it over a little. Crease it, flip the paper over and fold over the other way the same width. Repeat the folds back and forth until you get to the end. It should look like an accordion. Fold all of your paper strips in this way.

    Now take one strip and glue a second strip to the first making sure that the strips are glued together so the folds match and make one seamless strip.

  • Step 5

    Squeeze the bottom of the strips together and pull the top around to form a circle. You may need to cut your strip down to have a better tighter circle. For my blue medallion I believe I used one and three-quarter strips glued together. Now glue the ends of the strips together and you will have the round pleated part of your medallion.

    Punch a 2″ scallop from your scrapbook paper. Now, squeeze a bit of glue in the center of your medallion and glue down your punched circle.

    Next, glue down a milk cap in the center. If you would like to hang your medallion from a string, glue a long piece of twine at the center top of the medallion on the back.
