This frame cost me 2 dollars! the rest i had around the house. All you need is a newspaper, watered down glue or modge podge, a paint brush for applying glue, a frame-old or new-i used an old one, a tea bag in about a table spoon of water to antique your frame and a candle to burn the edges. this was a time consuming but worth it project!

First you glue newspaper to to front of your frame, i used 5 sheets of newspaper cut to size.  Once the glue and paper are dry (your paper will tear if you do it wet!) cut the excess paper off i used my exact o knife to do this.  Then i burnt the edges with a candle, be careful and do this at an angle or you will get the soot from the flame on your project!  Lastly i used the teabag to age the paper…added a little yarn and yyyyyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy a great frame!
