Create tabletop trees from newspaper and cardboard boxes. To make these, you’ll need discarded cardboard, a utility knife, scissors, hot glue sticks and glue gun. Cut the cardboard boxes down into flat sheets and then roll each sheet into a conical. Next, cut the uneven cardboard along the bottom of the conical and keep both ends of the cardboard fastened together with hot glue. Next, cut newspaper into 4-inch strips and then fray the newspaper with scissors. Wrap each conical with the layers of frayed newspaper and then secure them in place with hot glue.
You can't go wrong with the classics. Keep newspaper around during the holidays, then separate the black and white pages from those with color. Wrap the gift in black and white, then add a layer of color with ribbon.
Gallery walls are always an eye-catching design feature, but this one takes it a step further, adding a dash of history to its colorful display. Le Petit Journal was a Parisian daily newspaper published during the French occupation of Morocco. Each of the beautifully hand-drawn cover illustrations is a work of art in its own right. Taken together, they present not only a colorful wall feature, but a snapshot of the history that shaped Morocco.
Your bathroom should reflect you, the homeowner. In this quirky bathroom, a collage of newspapers and photographs papers the walls, layering personal memorabilia with crisp, white hand towels hung on a traditional brass bar. The homeowners used wallpaper paste and clippings that related to their work, lives and interests to create the attention-grabbing (and informative) effect.
