Craft ideas with newspaper

I never really make New Year’s resolutions, but I do have a conversation with myself at the beginning of each and every year.

And it is always around craft supplies. And how I need to reduce them.

So pretty much every year, the conversation is really centered around how I’m going to reach into my stash before I go buy supplies. And not only that, but how I’m going to re-organize my craft room and give things away that I haven’t used in a long time.

My stash has a lot of things I’ve purchased, but I also save stuff to make recycled crafts too. Supplies like magazines, wrapping paper, fabric scraps, bottles, toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, and more.

So then the goal becomes to use all those things up!

And the projects in this post? They are newspaper crafts! Yep . . . I save newspapers for a variety of craft ideas, and I’m excited to share some with you below. There are some projects done by yours truly as well as some of my blogger friends.

A lot of them include Mod Podge, because newspaper and decoupage medium go really well together. They just do!

So . . . check out this list of crafts with newspaper below and tell me what you think. These are really easy, and work well for both kids and adults! Beginning crafters will have success.

Maybe you’re trying to reduce your stash, or maybe you want to be kind to Mother Earth. Either way, give these projects a try.
