Take your newspaper and cut or tear out small sections of small print words.  Also, look through the paper and cut out larger words you would like to stand out on your frame.

Step 2: Sticking the pieces

Once you have all of your clippings, use a foam or paint brush to apply mod podge directly to your frame's boarder.  Then lay a clipping down and mod podge over it.

Step 3: Overlap and Cover
