Step 1: Materials

You will need the following items:

  • any size picture frame
  • scissors or X-acto knife
  • old magazines
  • Mod Podge
  • sponge brush

Step 2: Prep Images

First, look through a pile of old magazines and cut out inspirational words and images to make your collage. Then, arrange those cut-outs and experiment with placement, until you came up with your final decision.

Step 3: Glue Down Images

Now, you can use Mod Podge to glue down the images on a white sheet of paper, adding another layer on top to seal. For the paper, you might want to first cut it to the same size as your picture frame. Or you can use the back of the paper that comes with the frame; just flip it over and glue down your collage!

Step 4: Frame It

Once you're done, just slide it right into your picture frame!

Step 5: Display!

Now it's ready to display in your room! This project is great to add some fun color and inspirational value to your space. Or use as a homemade gift for your best friend that needs a little bit of spirit to his / her room!

    Try using 3M Spray 77 to mount the pictures before you put the Modge Podge on. It should help the applied magazine paper remain flat, as long as you have a pretty stiff backing.
