Greet your guests the old-fashioned way!
I had a whole bunch of my great-grandmother's old 45s lying around, so I decided to make a few of these for myself and for my friends and family who can appreciate the beauty of a vinyl record.

  • Step 1

    Gather your 45s. I chose ones with colorful or unique labels.

  • Step 2

    Lay out your records in a circular (wreath-like) shape. Play around with the order of the records and the color pattern 'til you find one you like. Just make sure the whole thing ends up being wreath-shaped.

  • Step 3

    Leaving this loose design, begin hot-gluing the records together in the wreath shape. Be sure you have them where you want them while the glue is hot, because I found out the hard way that records do not un-stick cleanly.

  • Step 4

    Once you have glued your wreath together, allow the glue to set for a minute or two. While this happens, measure out your ribbon. How you do so will depend on how you want to fashion the ribbon to the wreath.

  • Step 5

    Weave, tie, or knot your ribbon onto your wreath. I wove the ribbon into the first wreath and fashioned a simple hanger for the second wreath. Be creative!

  • Step 6

    Way to go! You'll be the coolest cats on the block with this Rockin' Record Wreath gracing your front door!
