I like this ornament idea because it could be made using news articles about a particular sports game. For instance a basketball article about a high school student. Be sure to include the date on the ornament. For the tutorial to make this ornament, go to The DesMoines Register .

2. 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 maya*made.

3. Flowers on a Branch

I think this flowered branch is an elegant and unique piece to add to the home décor. 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.

4. 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 !!!

5. Wall Art

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

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. Newspaper Art

What parent or grandparent wouldn't love to hang a picture like this on their wall? I think it would make a great Father's Day gift. Find out how this project was done by finding the instructions at MOM ON DEALZ.

9. 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 color, 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.

10. Earth Globes

Although this project can be a bit messy, the kids will have so much fun making these earth globes, that it'll all be worth it. I love how they finished by making the globes look starry. Find the tutorial for making the earth globes at Housing a Forest.

11. Silhouettes on Newsprint

Although this example is done in a Halloween theme, I think with different silhouettes, the art could be a year round piece. See how the project is put together at she wears flowers.

12. Gift Wrap and Bow

The newspaper wrap and bow make an attractive gift wrapping that anyone would be pleased to receive. Go to Craft Discoveries for the directions.

13. Cityscape ala Paul Bent

Make your own cityscape in the Paul Bent manner and then frame and hang it. This is a beautiful work of art. Go to the Kids & Glitter site for the directions for this art project.

14. Beads, Beads, Beads


Change the colors, change the shapes, make this project your own by doing it your way. Large beaded necklaces seem to be the fashion look today, and sometimes many strings of them worn together. Get the directions from A Storybook Life and then go for the gold.

Take your time and make a couple of these neat baskets. A great place to put your newspapers. For the directions, go to craftstylish.

Isn't this a beautiful frame? You'll find the directions on how to make this frame on michele made me.

17. Shimmer Tree

This tree with just the edges sprayed with glitter, will find a place on your mantle or as a decoration for a winter wedding. Find the directions at Bella Dia.

18. Coiled Paper Ornaments

Go to SAVED BY LOVE Creations to see how to make these beautiful coiled paper ornaments. The directions use magazine pages to make these ornaments, but I think they would look exceptional by using newspaper to make the coils and then spread on a thin coat of glue and sprinkle the ornaments with fine glitter.

19. Newspaper Birds

The kids love doing this art project using a tissue painted background behind the newspaper tissue painted birds. To find out how to make this project, go to Kids & Glitter.

20. Large Flowers

Simple and easy. A project that the kids will love to make. Go to thriftyfun for the directions.

21. Newspaper Matting

I really think this is a great idea....picture matting made from newpaper. And the picture with the print stamped on is outstanding. Go to a girl with a glue gun for the directions.

22. JOY Banner

When you need a banner for a special occasion, this is a great idea. At a baby shower, the letters could spell BABY and if you know the gender, maybe tint the banner in a color. This great idea and instructions can be found at April’s Homemaking.

23. Seedling Pots

I've made and used pots like these to start tomato and pepper seeds. Worked great too. For the directions, go to Little House in the Suburbs.

24. Pirate Swords

Let the kids play pirates with these swords made from newspapers. Much safer, and less hurtful, than the plastic swords that you can purchase. Follow the tutorial at Alpha Mom to make these pirate swords.

25. Tube Beads From a Newspaper

26. Decorator Container

Use vintage paper or burn the edges and crumple the paper before making this neat container. You can get the directions for making this project at Rustic Crafts.

Remember, if you want to spray paint your newspaper items, that you spray very lightly and let the paint dry between coats.

27. Newspaper Wigs

The ultimate wig. If you want a unique costume accessory, this is a great one. To find out how to make it, go to Martha Stewart

28. Newspaper Art

This work of newspaper art is an attractive additon to modern décor. To make art like this, check out the directions at crafted.

29. Flower Bouquet

I like the tinted flowers that let the newsprint show in these flowers. You'll find out how to make these flowers at the trendy treehouse.

30. Stitched Star Garland

This stitched star garland is a nice patriotic touch for any room of your home or for a themed party. Go to Factory Direct for the instructions.

31. Newspaper Carrot

I think this is a very unique project. A basket of these sitting on the counter in a wire basket would be very interesting looking. Go to 123Peppy for the directions.

32. Coiled Coasters

What a neat recycling project. Not only are the coaster useful, they are attractive. If you would like to make these cute coasters, go to Saved by Love Creations for the directions.

Spread newspaper between garden rows as a weed blocker.

33. Sunflower Sunshine

Just a bit of sunshine for your home when you display a vase of sunflowers. You will find the directions on how to make them at that artist woman.

34. Newspaper Pears

Use paper from a newspaper, a magazine or a book to make these very beautiful, modern pears. You will find the directions at ON THE V SIDE.

35. Newspaper Eggs

Make your own decorative eggs and display them in a beautiful glass bowl. I think I'd be inclined to add iridescent glitter while the eggs were still wet. You'll find the instructions at CRAFT AND CREATIVITY.

36. Haunted House

The kids will have a great time making these houses and the houses would be a nice addition to your Halloween décor. Go to little lovely for the directions.

37. Snowman

A nice 'getting ready for Christmas' project. If you want to make a snowman, go to FAB MUMS for the directions.

38. Simple Flowers

Whether made from magazine pages or newsprint, these simple flowers would be acute addition to a gift or card. Go to Craft for the directions.

When packing delicate items, use shredded newspaper as a cushion.

39. Newspaper Imaged Vase

I realize this picture shows the vase made using music sheet paper, and it's beautiful. But, since this is an article about crafts using newspapers, just imagine the vase made with newspaper. I think it would be very attractive. Go to How About Orangeto see how to make a vase like this.

40. Shredded Newspaper Lantern

This project, with directions at REDUCE, REUSE, REDECORATE, uses a paper lantern and shredded newspaper to make a beautiful, unique lantern.

41. Button Centered Flowers

You'll find the tutorial for the beautiful newspaper flowers at Red Ted Art. A terrific idea to give to Mom on Mother's day or her birthday.

42. Newspaper Envelopes

I imagine if you affixed a white label to the envelope, the written address would be easy to see. For the tutorial to make envelopes using newspaper and brown paper bag, is found at KANELSTRAND .

43. Newspaper Kite

There's no need to buy a kite when you can easily make one using newpaper pages. Go to to learn how to make one.

44. Decoupaged Pumpkin

I love the looks of this Halloween pumpkin. It has an elegant look that will fit into even the fussiest décor. Go to make and takes to find the directions.

45. Paper Star

This is really an awesome project. You can learn how to make this newsprint star by finding the instructions at World of Scrap.

46. Newspaper Crown

Plan a medieval party and then make everyone, or have them make their own, crown using newspaper and imagination. Or, go to the site, Salsa PIE , and follow the instructions.

47. Huge Fall Leaves

I love the simplicity of this craft with directions at Life With Little Ones. Because I'd want to keep these leaves from year to year, I think I would glue a light wire along the outside edge of the leaves, or maybe just over the veins of the leaves. That would also make it possible to shape them a bit without taking the thin look of them away.

48. Pencil Holder

Make a useful pencil holder for your desk, while recycling. You can see how to make this pencil holder by going to World of Scrap.

49. Award Badge

When needing a bunch of badges to give as game awards, consider making these newspaper print ones. The tutorial for making inexpensive, but very attractive yo yo badges is found at Zakka Life.

50. Pumpkin Perfection

I love the look of this pumpkin. It is so simple, but this pumpkin will look great no matter what your decorating style is. Go to PLAID for the directions.

51. Christmas Ornaments

Although these Christmas ornaments look really difficult to make, the tutorial that you'll find at Homemaking with Monica prove that they are easier to make than they look. Really beautiful ornaments!

52. Poppies

You've probably already made the sunflowers, but now you can also make poppies by following the instructions at that artist woman. This is a nice classroom project that is very inexpensive and the lesson on recycling is important.

53. Rolled Paper Frame

I really like the idea of using rolled paper frames like these to frame artwork done by students. You'll find the instructions for doing this project at the lazy hobbyhopper.

54. Tic Tac Toe Game

Help the kids make their own tic tac toe game using newspaper for the game grid and the x's and o's. Find the tutorial for making this game at Reasons to be Cheerful…. This would be a great activity for scouts or birthday parties.

55. Newspaper Favors

Any time that you need to make a lot of favors for a party or occasion, the cost of supplies is a factor. It so happens that you can make those favors inexpensively with newspaper, and end up with an attractive little favor bag. Find the tutorial for making this project at favecrafts.

56. Newspaper Tray

Can you believe this is a covered styrofoam tray? The pictured one is done with a music sheet, but it would look great done in newspaper also. Talk about a nice recycling project, this is it. Go to Rook No. 17 for the directions.

57. Whimsical Snowmen

These paper mache snowmen will become treasured Christmas ornaments as the years go by. Find out how to make them by going to The Party Animal site.

58. Heart Garland

Imagine making a heart garland to decorate for Valentine's day, or just to use as decoration in a girl's bedroom. I love this heart garland, with directions on the THINK CRAFTS! site. Consider applying a thin line of glue to the edges of the hearts and sprinkle with red glitter.

59. Paper Mache Mushrooms

This is an Alice in Wonderland inspired project with a tutorial at Dizzily Dreaming. I can see adding small mushrooms made like this to a fairy garden also.
