Link Love: Craft with Recycled Paper


Welcome to the final National Craft Month edition of Link Love! This week’s theme on the blog is home decor, so I decided to find some cool home decor crafts you can make using recycled paper. What do I mean by recycled paper? I’m talking coffee filters, paper bags, junk mail, newspapers, magazine, old sewing patterns, sheet music, the works! You can make so many things out of paper in addition to handmade cards and scrapbook layouts. Check out these thrifty things to make for your home, all from paper!

    I’ve made paper pots for planting seeds using newspaper. I visited my niece’s classroom and taught the students how to make them too. I’ve also made boxes, dice, paper chains, gift wrap and flowers from recycled paper.
