10 Creative Ways to Recycle Newspaper

10 Ways to Recycle Newspaper with Crafts

So I just figured out you can go to a party with a recycled 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 origami and a newspaper Happy Birthday banner and you can sit (un)comfortably on your newspaper bench. Just kidding. But I HAVE seen all those photos around the web. Google them.

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! Again, I’ve see these around the web. I swear!
