Take 1 and tuck it into the space between your neck and the tie. 4. Fold 2 at the widest portion, making sure to hold it sideways. 5. Drop 1 over the folded 2 and fold 1 up through it. 6.

Simply glue flat thumbtacks to small magnets. Push the thumbtacks into the wall where you want to hang the poster. Glue the same amount of magnets to the back of your poster and use the magnets’ attraction to the push pins as an alternate adhesive. If your walls can’t handle the microscopic holes that thumbtacks create then you can use a magnetic primer to coat the room.
