Newspaper Planter



Don't toss that Sunday paper!  Gather up yesterdays news and create this stylish Newspaper Planter.  Not only do recycled newspaper projects help the environment, they're fun and easy to make, give, or keep for yourself!

Newspaper Planter


  • Hot glue gun
  • Clear acrylic sealer
  • A container (I used one that was for breadcrumbs)
  • 1 spool of Newspaper yarn



  1. Take the container and turn it upside down and glue the newspaper around and around until you reach the top lip of container.
  2. Work in small section so the glue doesn’t dry too quickly on you. Try to glue each wrap as close as you can to the row before as to not leave gaps. Feel free to embellish as well with beads and tassels and funky odds and ends!

There are comments that there are no instructions for making the newspaper yarn. I suppose they bought it, but my suggestion is to lay your newspaper flat (and include the Sunday comics in color) and start at one corner and roll it diagonally to the opposite corner....perhaps using a pencil or a straw as a guide (removing it quickly so that when the roll is complete it can be bent around a container. I hope this helps.
