Wordy Lampshade

Wordy Lampshade DIYs with newspaper also allow you to make some awesome “inspired by” pieces that you can use to spruce up a room in your house or give as a gift.

Newspaper Nails

Newspaper Nails This was my very first newspaper DIY and it’s deceptively easy! If you’re looking for something new and chic to do to your nails but aren’t that hot at doing nail art, this is a great alternative. You only need a few items such as a base and top coat, nail polish color of your choice, although it’s easier to see on lighter colors and it gives it a more newspaper-y feel, newspaper and rubbing alcohol.

Newspaper Trivet

Newspaper Trivet Another clever craft project that uses old newspaper is a newspaper trivet. This is one of those DIYs that will come in super handy because no one really thinks about potholders but just about everyone uses them. Depending on the size you decide to make your trivet, it can also be used as a coaster and if you’re feeling really ambitious, you could even create placemats using the same instructions.

Newspaper Shoes If you’ve got a pair of old shoes that are really comfortable but have seen better days, make them over with some newspaper!
