Grab yesterday's newspaper and get cutting. These Giant Painted Newspaper Snowflakes are awesome recycled crafts for Christmas. In a short amount of time you can turn drab newspapers into sparkly and vibrant paper snowflakes. Because a standard newspaper is so big, making paper snowflakes of all sizes is easy to do. If you are looking for a fun Christmas craft for kids this year, these snowflakes are a perfect afternoon activity. Combine bright colors and metallic paint along with experimental cuts to get these cool snowflake decorations for your walls.

Great idea for old newspapers - and also for those paper supermarket and circular flyers we all get in the mail. You can decide how much the newsprint shows through by varying the amount of paint. I like to have some show through - gives it a shabby chic look.
