Colorful DIY Home-Spun Yarn from Recycled Newspapers


recycled-homespun-newspaper-yarn

Newsprint is too colorful a material not to at least try and reuse in creative ways. The catch, often, is that at a larger scale the print itself can be distracting when used in a design. Spinning such a material into yarn takes advantages of all of its best properties – its stability when tightly knit and the embedded colors in the print itself.

As these examples shown, this home-spun yarn material can then be used for all kinds of do-it-yourself art and design projects around the house, including flat mats or rugs, hanging and quilted curtains and coverings for all kinds of furniture cubes and other furniture objects.
