Not a watermark, but you can use a picture as a background fill for a textbox.

Right-click the edge of the box and choose Format Textbox. Open the Fill Color
dropdown and choose Fill Effects (or in Word 2007 just click the Fill Effects
button). Click the Picture tab and browse/select the picture file.

This method doesn't give you a washout effect like a watermark; if you need
that, you'll have to do it in a separate graphics editor and save the file that
way before making it a background.
