10 Creative Ways to Recycle Newspaper

So I just figured out how you can go to a party with a newspaper basket present wrapped in newspaper, inside a newspaper gift bag wearing a newspaper dress, newspaper coat, and newspaper bracelet carrying your newspaper purse. Oh yeah, and the party is decorated with newspaper oragami and a newspaper Happy Birthday banner and you can sit (un)comfortably on your newspaper bench.

Don’t throw away that old newspaper! When it comes to creativity like this, recycling is a must! You can start simple by making a banner or wrapping a gift, but those who are more adventurous? I say, try the making the newspaper coat or newspaper bench!

Here are 10 creative crafts from recycled newspaper.

  1. The first one is the obvious one! Use it as gift wrap.
  2. Make a bracelet.
  3. Make a Happy Birthday banner.
  4. Make a gift bag.
  5. Build a bench.
  6. Make oragami!
  7. Make a basket.
  8. Make a dress.
  9. Need a coat to go over that dress?
  10. And of course you’ll need a purse to go with that outfit!
