Being a crafty person, I don’t believe in spending money for home decor items. I do lots and lots of experiments using scratch items to create wonderful and affordable craft items. This post is one of a kind and this home decor hanging art can be done using the newspaper. Can you believe it? Yes, take a close look at the images, it’s all newspaper. This simple wall hanging piece is going to decorate your home in a very creative way. Creating this wall decor doesn’t require much time except the time for paint to dry. And I am very excited to say this was my first craft item I tried in home decor category, so bear with the little flaws in the appearance and presenting the tutorial post. Let’s get started with materials required and method to do.

Materials Required:

Old Newspaper – a lot
Thin Stick – pencil length
Glue
Various colors of paints and brush (available online or in craft or stationery stores)
Beads
Thread and needle
String or coil

Method:
  • Using the stick, roll the newspapers as shown in the figure. Create lots and lots of the newspaper sticks then connect the ends using glue while flattening and rolling them forming a circular shape.
