Chic Tricks For Hanging The Perfect Photo Frame
Anyone can hang a tilt-free photo frame with these easy
and inexpensive tips!
By Whitney Acke
Whether you’re hanging photos you’ve taken
and framed yourself or if you are hanging expensive art,
you want it to look good. Even if you have a great eye
for hanging, things can always go wrong.
Some women are bold and choose to hang their frames without
anything but a hammer and nails. Although this can work,
it is not the best way to attempt the task. You may just
end up with a million holes in your wall from hitting studs
or incorrect placement.
If you want to hang the perfect photo frame or piece or
art, try these chic tricks. There is nothing worse than
a nice piece of art tilting on the wall!
The first thing you need to do is find a tape measure or
level. If your level has a built-in stud finder, rejoice!
In addition, purchase a roll of self-stick Velcro from
your local craft store.
Think about where you want to place the frames. If you
have problems getting a mental picture of how the frames
will look, try this trick. Trace the size of the frame
onto paper. Cut out the shape and using tape, stick it
to the wall. It will give you a better idea of how the
placement will look in various places, without you putting
random holes in the walls to find out.
Using the tools collected in Step #1, draw out where you
need to place the nails (with a pencil). Be sure if you
are placing several frames next to each other that you
allow the same amount of space between them all (3 inches
is often appropriate).
When you are happy with the frame placement, remove the
frames from the wall once more. Cut a small square of
self-stick Velcro from the roll and attach one side to
the bottom center of the frame. Hang the frame back on
the wall and attach the other side of the Velcro directly
to the wall, so the two sides connect. The Velcro will
keep your frame from tilting!
