Local crafter and deckhand Bree Dale used old newspapers to craft this model vessel.
Every April Earth Day rolls around and the world gets together to celebrate this beautiful planet by cleaning up, pitching in, and planting roots. We usually do our part in Southeast Alaska year-round, but in case you need a little extra help this April, I have come up with a few ways to do your part by recycling the news you read. That's right, a different crafty creation from newspaper for each day in April should get you on your way to celebrating Earth Day in style.
1. Newspaper maché: this classic craft never goes out of style.
2. Pattern paper: create your own clothes by copying patterns out with newsprint.
3. Drop cloth: avoid the drips.
4. Scale models: some crafters get really creative with glue and paper. Check out local crafter and deckhand Bree Dale's reuse of newspaper into a seaworthy sailing vessel.
