Have you ever dropped your desire to get your artwork done on high-quality canvas like a professional artist? Don't let the premium price or limitations of your local store stop you from doing what you love. Given below are step-by-step instructions on how you can create your canvas paper at home, that too with zero expense. All you need to have is some used paper and water!

Let's get started  

Step 1:
Cut the paper into tiny bits either by using your hands or scissors. Add sufficient water to the paper bits and keep them aside for 2 minutes. Make sure the quantity of water is ample enough to immerse the paper bits completely.

Step 2:
Once the paper is thoroughly soaked, transfer it to a  mixer jar and grind it for at least 3 minutes until it forms a pulp.

Step 3:
Take a bowl and pour a  glass of water. Add 2 tablespoons of freshly prepared paper pulp and give it a good mix. Make sure the pulp is mixed evenly with water. Use a paper mold or a flat strainer to strain the paper from the bowl. Spread the pulp evenly on the surface of the strainer. Use a cotton fabric to absorb the excess water.

Step 4:
Flip the strainer and tap gently to get the most out of the paper.

 Step 5:
Let the paper dry completely at room temperature.

Tada! Your canvas paper is ready to go.
Let your creativity and artistic venture run freely on the richness of the premium canvas that you just made!

Handmade Planters

Who doesn't like to take a nice walk and feel the fresh air? Since it's impossible to be outdoors always, it's a fabulous idea to take a little bit of nature indoors! Indoor plants are a great way to savor the benefits of nature without stepping outside. Moreover, it can bring positivity and elegance to your room. Why spend money buying planters when you already have a lot of options available in your home? Given below are some of the ways to transform your household products into beautiful plant pots.

Bottles: Bottles are quick and easy to convert into pots. For plastic bottles, just cut their heads, preferably using a pre-heated knife. Decorate it as you like and plant your favorite indoor plants. Glass bottles are more suitable for aquatic plants. All you need to do is to pour water into a bottle and put a rooted plant in it. As easy as that!  Tube lights: You can use tube lights to support the creepers. Insert them vertically in between a rooted plant and wait for it to spread all over the tube. If you don't want its white colour to show off until the plant grows and covers it completely, you always have the option of painting or winding it with a thin rope before inserting it into the soil.

Artificial Pond

Take out that old piece of tarpaulin from your garage and convert it into a beautiful outdoor aquarium. It not only takes your garden to the next level but also gives your water pets more space to move around. If you are clueless about how to make it, follow the steps given below.

Step 1:
Find the perfect location for your outdoor pond. Remember that it is difficult to change the place once you build the foundation. Therefore, fix your spot wisely.

Step 2:
Start digging the pit from one end until you reach the destined size and shape of your pond. Make sure that the size of your pool is smaller than the size of your tarpaulin.

Step 3:
Spread the tarpaulin all over the pit. It should cover the surface of the cavity completely to prevent the water from sweeping back to the soil. Secure it with rocks on all sides.

Step 4:
Pour water into the pit until it reaches a level slightly below its brim.

Step 5:
Transfer your water pets into their new home. Make sure to refill the evaporated water once a week during summer.
