spend the 7 bucks or whatever it is and get a hole cutter. you can select what size whole you want and it cuts clean in a perfect circle. although you really might wanna look into getting some kind of "bass drum holz" or "port holes" just to protect the head otherwise it probably wont be long before it rips.

I always use the support ring. Simply attach it to the head and then cut around the inner edge with a stanley knife.

Easy as pie.

I'm pretty low on budget so I don't want to spend any money on it

A support ring is necessary. They are very cheap and will protect the head from tearing after it's cut. They should sell them at your drum shop.
