8 Crafts using Newspaper

One of the easiest craft supplies to be found is newspaper, and we all know that it’s good to recycle. I did a Google search and found some projects that I think you will enjoy. In this article I’m going to list the projects that I found, show a picture, and give you the name of the site and address where you’ll find the directions.

1. Hats for the Tea Party

This is exactly what I have been looking for. My little granddaughters want to have address up tea party and these hats will be perfect. The instructions for how to make them can be found at MayaMade.

2. Flowers on a Branch

I think this flowered branch is an elegant and unique piece to add to the home decor. You’ll find the tutorial for making this project at The Eco Chic blog. A couple of ideas that would change the looks somewhat would be to spray the flowers with glue and sprinkle on fine glitter, or spray paint the completed project with gold spray.

3. Ballard-Inspired Newsprint Dress

There’s no need to pay well over $200. to get have a newsprint dress picture. Crafty Butt has a terrific tutorial for making your own Ballard inspired newsprint dress picture. She also has a complementary picture with a purse, gloves and shoes. Fantastic project!

4. Wall Art

You’ll find a very thorough tutorial at DIY Enthusiasts for making this attractive wall art. Choose the colours that will enhance your decorating scheme.

5. Newspaper Gift Bow

I wouldn’t want to tear open this package. Of course this would be an elegant piece as decor. Imagine this on an end table or mantel. Might want to keep it out of reach of the little kiddos. Find the tutorial for making this project at Art Is Medicine.

6. Gift Bags

Now make all the gift bags you need. They’ll be unique and you’ll be saving money. The directions for these great gift bags can be found at How About Orange.

7. Newspaper Art

Although the directions for this art uses book pages, I think newspaper would work just as well. Find out how this project was done by finding the instructions at Visit StudioSeena’s Website.

8. Rolled Flowers Wreath

This wreath is way more beautiful than you would imagine, since it is made with newspaper. I think if you wanted to change the colour, you could just give it a few light coats of spray paint. Maybe even a spray of adhesive and then sprinkled with iridescent glitter would look elegant. For the directions, go to Under the Table and Dreaming.
