1.  Clean and dry a can and collect some newspapers. I like the keep some on hand. You never know when you’ll get the inspiration to make a newspaper craft! I’ve made a few!

2.  Take the newspaper and cut it in half.

3.  Starting at a corner, take your pencil and roll it in the newspaper. Use your glue stick to glue it along the way. Shake out the pencil and set it aside. Repeat and make as many as you need to cover the can.

4.  Using hot glue, put a line of glue on the can and stick the first newspaper roll to the can. Repeat with other rolls until the can is about half covered. At that time, it is good to cut off the extra newspaper length on each side of the can.

It’s a newspaper craft and an aluminum can craft! Two recycling crafts in one!

6.  Take some rope and hot glue it around the top and the bottom for a little finishing trim. If you don’t have rope use ribbon or twine.

  1. The shaze newspaper holders are uniquely crafted with resin and electroformed silver on the top. Not only utility, but the majestic and royal look of the product make this indispensable as a thoughtful gift. The shaze silver-plated Murina Newspaper Holder is one-of-its-kind for a gift.
