Just because you’re a proud broke-ass, doesn’t mean you have to live like a dirtbag – it’s super easy to decorate using cheap, simple materials. Plus, it’s seriously time to get rid of those posters. You can do better. Point in case: pinhole artwork. Check it:
Lovely – and you can do it too. It costs next to nothing; you probably already have everything you need – save a picture frame. Street score a picture frame and do it for free. Or just spend $1.29 at Goodwill. (Goes without saying that you can and should stain, paint or alter the frame however you like.) Aside from the frame, all you need is: paper – preferably a fibrous type like cotton, an image/photo/vodka ad you’re diggin’, cardboard, tape, a thumb tack, a bead and a dot of glue (to glue the bead onto the tack, like so:

You can get elaborate with it – put some foil or colored tissue paper behind your pin hole paper, or put a candle behind it. Tre chic and way cheap.
