Handspun Recycled Newspaper Yarn

Use old newspapers to produce paper yarn!
Not so long ago we presented Hula Hoop T-shirt Rug which was one of those upcycling ideas we love. Now let’s have a look at some even more everyday material which can be upcycled.

If you don’t know what to do with old newspapers you should produce yarn! Handspun Recycled Newspaper Yarn is probably one of the easiest and the most practical upcycling idea I’ve ever seen. Frankierevolver from “Craftster” community website gives a neat tutorial on how to produce material for weaving baskets and bowls. I wonder if it’s possible to weave a paper carpet?
