Just like magazine tubes, newspaper tubes are an excellent craft that is versatile and an easy way to upcycle. The technique is pretty much the same, with one minor change to accommodate the newspaper’s length.



  • Newspaper
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Skewer or dowel
1. Cut the newspaper along the crease so you only have one page.


2. Place the skewer at one corner of the newspaper and begin to roll the paper around the skewer.


3. Continue to roll until the newspaper has almost covered the length of the skewer.


4. Now gently pull the skewer partway out and continue rolling. 


5. Repeat Step 4 until the entire sheet is wrapped around the skewer.


6. Glue the corner of the newspaper to secure the tube.


Now you are ready to get crafting with your newspaper tubes.
