DIY - How to decorate your wall on a budget

Image
This is a super easy way to revamp your old wall decor or to bring life to the plain walls. It just took me 3 hours to do the full arrangement and the cost was 0$. No cost at all!!


STEP 1:
Yes, Just 2 items! and all you have to do is cut the glossy magazine in the hexagonal shape. I cut around 22 hexagons from several sheets of the glossy magazines that i had.



STEP 2:
I arranged the hexagons in a honeycomb shape. I just wanted to have the geometric pattern.


STEP 3:
Use a tape to stick the hexagons together and pin it to the wall .


I am pleased with the output of how it looks. What do you guys think?



Dollar store hacks 4 - Change a trash bin to a storage bin

Image
I have been doing a lot of dollar store DIYs lately,  you can find the first three hacks here, here and here. For the past 3 months i was busy with school , assignment and exams. Now that the term is over, i thought of getting back to doing some DIYs for the holiday seasons.


I was short of the nautical rope, hence had to use the burlap to get full coverage. In case you have a lit of nautical rope, u can cover the bin completely with that too.
Use the glue gun to stick the nautical rope and the burlap in place.
This is how my final product looks like and the total cost for making this was just 3$

Image
Although settings, costumes, and tropes remain consistent throughout the films of the Western genre, the values, lessons, and heroes of the genre are constantly changing. In many ways, Westerns serve as a perfect window into how America has viewed itself throughout the twentieth century. Through 8 films, we'll take a journey through these changes to understand how Westerns have evolved, and how this evolution has been shaped by history.

"Stagecoach" and The Traditional Western With arguably the genre's most quintessential director, John Ford, lead actor, John Wayne, and scenic location, Monument Valley, this black-and-white classic employs every trope of the genre in a tight 1 hour and 40 minute package. Storywise, it's the subplots and the humor that make this movie great. Many playful vignettes, featuring expert character actors of their day, paint life on the frontier as cheap, justice as obsolete, and morality as ambiguous. This lighthearted humor juxtaposed ag…

When used in painting it somehow makes even the simple sketch look unique. They are so versatile. I love the circles and the triangles. I try to use them in most of my doodles and also DIYs.

If you've ever considered, you may well have heard of the following seven myths. Here's why they aren't true, and how you can achieve your goals.
