Rather than recycling your newspaper every day, save up one or two for this DIY project! You can easily make an upcycled woven basket from rolled up pages. All you need is glue, cardboard, and whatever color of paint you choose. It's easy enough for kids, but still fun for grown-ups. If you want, you can also switch it by using magazines. In fact, you can pretty much turn any paper product into a piece of DIY art. Check out the video below and try it yourself.
