Making your own paper can be done in many ways. One craft project that many people may be familiar with is using old newspapers to make recycled paper. However, this is not the only way. Another option is to make paper by using weeds or plants that have invaded your yard.

The key to make paper using old newspaper or invasive plants is pulp. You need to blend leaves that are dry and other elements of a plant with a liquid to make the pulp. A little water and an old blender is all you need to make the pulp mixture for your paper.

A piece of wire mesh is needed for making paper at home. The mesh is needed to separate the water from the dried organic paper that will dry to make a sheet of paper. If you are interested in how to make paper from invasive plants, then you need to look into the Invasive Paper Project.
