Turn an ordinary record in to an earing holder.
I found this heart shaped record at a crazy late night record fair. The songs on it were pretty rubbish, so after seeing this so I decided to do something useful with it. I attached it to the wall by putting a circle of foam (the one you get in packets of blank cds) at the back and then putting a screw through the middle. The earing holes were made by drilling in to the record.

VERY cool!!! I especially like the use of that foam circle from the cd stacks. I always thought there would be something useful to do with those!

Just crappy love songs.. only cost 30p. I've not made any holes in the actual record so I could still play it. x
