How To: Upcycled Vinyl Records Into Wall Art

My roommate, Crystal, had a blank wall in her room that desperately needed to be filled. She’s a musician, so naturally, we pulled out some records and upcycled them into really cool wall art!

What You Will Need:

1. Vinyl records. You can find records at garage sales or thrift stores, but you might even know someone that would give you a few from their collection!

2. Tacks

How to Do It:

1. Decide where you want your records and how you are going to arrange them. We did Crystal’s in a straight line to add some width to her room (it’s a very long and narrow room).

2. Put a tack in the middle of where you would like to place your record.

Pretty simple, right? Here are the before and after shots:
