35 Newspaper Design Finds

From Recycled Tabloid Jewelry to Paper-Made Animal Sculptures

— January 18, 2015 — Art & Design
These newspaper design projects range from recycled tabloid necklaces to paper-made animal sculptures. Printed newspapers often become outdated just a day after being published and are the culprit of tremendous waste build-up.

Instead of wasting these newspapers, many designers are choosing the sustainable route and are re-purposing a material that would otherwise be thrown away. Standouts from this list of newspaper design ideas include paper mache stilettos that are accented with a layer of printed papyrus along with home decor projects that are made using upcycled newspaper fragments.

Whether used to create wall art, furniture or desirable fashion accessories, newspaper is becoming a more popular medium for artists and designers alike. These newspaper design examples are eco-friendly and turn trash into treasure.
