Step 1: Cutting Your Pieces

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

Continue overlapping pieces and doing this until you have covered the entire boarder of your frame.

Step 4: Bold Words

Next, take those bold, larger words you cut out and place them on the desired locations of your frame.  Stick them down with mod podge.

Step 5: Finished Product

Now all you have to do is let your frame dry, and you have completed a one-of-a-kind masterpiece!
