Here I am going to share the idea of a beautiful newspaper showpiece – “How to make a waterfall with newspaper.” Before starting the tutorial, I am sharing a brief story behind Why I made this paper fountain craft.

My landlady has created a beautiful garden in a small area. All the things, such as grass, plants and flower pots, etc. in the garden were artificial, and they were giving a stunning look.

Still, she was missing something in the garden that could enhance the beauty of the garden. When she discussed the matter with me, I suggested that the water fountain would be perfect for giving a unique and splendid look to your garden.

She liked my idea but said that it would be costly if I buy it from the market. I don’t want to spend money on it, as I have already done a lot of shopping.

Then I decided that I will gift her DIY newspaper waterfall showpiece.

Step 3: Now we have to create three circles in a way, the second circle should be bigger than the first, and the third one should be bigger than the second.

For this, start quilling the flattened straws. Take the bottom of the flatten straw and stick another flatten straw at its end with glue.

Repeat this process until we get a circle of the desired size. Similarly, by following these steps, we will create two other circles.
