Newspaper Shirts – An Easy, Fun and Silly Craft Project!

Newspaper Shirt Craft Project

Last week we were in need of a craft project.  I didn’t have anything in mind, so somehow came up with the idea of making newspaper clothing!  It turned out to be way more fun than I imagined and will definitely be back on the to-do list in the future!


2 large sheets of newspaper (preferably the comics or pages with color)
pen/crayon/or marker
clear tape

  • Have the “shirt-wearer” lie down with their torso fully on a sheet of newspaper. Trace around torso, arms and shoulders, leaving about 3″ extra space on all sides.
  • Stack one sheet on top of the other and cut through both on the marked outline.
  • Tape the two sheets together at the outer shoulder mark and slip sheets over your child’s head. Use tape to seal up the rest of the “seams”.

Note:  Don’t make the same mistake we did and try to tape it together before putting it on!
