1. Tear up some thinnish paper into pieces no bigger than 1-1/2 inches across. (The tighter the curve, the smaller the pieces you should use. If you're pasting paper onto something flat, you can use pieces as big as you want.)
2. Paint the back of the paper with Mod Podge (I used matte) and stick the paper onto your surface. Then paint more glue over the top of the paper and use your finger to smooth out the wrinkles. Cover the whole surface of your object, one piece of paper at a time. Let dry.
3. Paint on decorations with acrylic paint, or paste on some colorful paper shapes with more Mod Podge. I painted on this stripe at the top.
