Recycling ideas – Newspaper

October 20, 2008

I scoured the web to find ideas on what to do with my growing mound of newspaper – besides the obvious recycling.   Here are a few ideas, some useful, some fun. 

Fireplace logs – winter is coming and instead of buying pre-made fireplace logs, make your own from discarded newspaper (or I suppose any paper you have around the house – could be a good option for junk mail!).

Made beads for necklaces, bracelets, earrings or just for fun –  These beads have a very earthy quality. It looks like a great project for those long winter days with tween girls at home.

Newspaper structures – I just stumbled on this fun project, create structures out of newspapers.   I am going to enlist my husband, the structural engineer, and our son for a day of structure building!
