Let’s get a little crafty, shall we? With some guidance from
Goa – Villagio’s Holiday Activities team, you can make a beautiful table vase from nothing but leftover newspapers!
You will need:
Newspapers, PVA glue, Acrylic colours
To make your own table vase:
Divide a single sheet of newspaper into three horizontal sections and cut it out. Repeat with
several more sheets, until you have sufficient strips
Take a single cut sheet and start rolling from the corner tightly until you have a thin cigarette-like roll of paper. Apply some glue to secure the shape of the roll. Repeat with all the cut sheets of newspaper.
Cut a piece of newspaper into a square base. This base can be of any size but it needs to be a square. This will be the base for your vase. Start by gluing down the rolls of paper at an angle, to the four corners of the base.
Layer rolls of paper on the base from corner to corner, while simultaneously weaving in the rolls that have been glued in at an angle.
Repeat weaving and layering till a desired height is reached. The basic vase is now ready.
Paint the vase in the colours of your choice and leave it to dry overnight!
