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.
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.
Landee will show you how to cover a lampshade with newspaper and Mod Podge. It's very easy, and the perfect way to give an old shade a new lease on life. Check the Goodwill to see if you can find a cheap shade.
It's hard to tell how large this medallion is from the picture, but it's about 44" wide! This newspaper craft was designed to be a statement piece. You can make yours this large, or smaller . . . you can also put it on a canvas. How you customize this decor is up to you.
These paper flowers are super thrifty (they cost us practically nothing to make)! They look great on the front of cards, as part of quirky gift wrap, decorating a wall or canvas . . . so many possibilities. One simple craft with a lot of uses.
