Do you have old newspapers at home? Sometimes we don’t know what to do with them and sometimes we don’t notice them. Don’t throw them in the garbage.
With old newspapers you can make some of the most interesting and unique things. Look what this skilled and ingenious person made in the tutorial attached below.
You wouldn’t believe what people make out of newspapers! They make baskets, clocks, picture frames, napkin holders, lamps, placemats, and the list goes on and on.
What a fabulous way to recycle and create some unique conversation pieces for your home decor. These make great gifts for friends too!
I am amazed and in awe at some of the fabulously beautiful pieces I have seen made out of newspaper. If you want to see more, look on Pinterest. There are tons of amazing art pieces.
I actually saw a gorgeous vase on Etsy and it had been painted bright colors and was being sold for $75! This can definitely be an interesting a lucrative craft.
I made a recycled newspaper dish was such a hit, I thought I would take a crack at a similar project I spied at a local fair trade store. This time I used folded newspaper strips to make coils, and attached them with crochet thread. Again, a practically free, unique handmade gift idea. Just remember that these projects are time consuming, so if you want a stock pile by Christmas, get started yesterday.
