As a creative and eco-friendly touch, decorate your home with old vinyl records and album covers. Dust off your records and put them to good use as wall hangings and other decor pieces. You can also use vintage records to enhance a music-themed birthday bash, anniversary soirée or wedding or bridal shower. Choose records featuring vibrantly hued labels with interesting design details. If you don't own any vintage records, scour flea markets and thrift shops to find as many as you need.
