How to Hang Just About Anything
Hello and happy Friday! I'm looking forward to a couple low key days after a busy week!
I'm back with a post that I've been meaning to share with you all for a long time now -- I was reminded of it when I wrote about our pantry earlier this week:
First up -- when I have anything heavy to hang I always use an anchor. Usually with an anchor you have to find a drill bit that matches the size of your anchor, drill a hole in the wall, then insert the anchor and the screw. Too many steps, I got stuff to do.
Instead I use this self-drilling version:
For something that has two hooks on the back (I groan when I turn it over and find two!) I will cheat with some picture wire or string (if the item is lightweight):
Sometimes the hooks are two high on the back for this to work. And if you are hanging the item in a spot where it may get jostled or touched a lot this may be best -- you'll be adjusting it constantly. But for the most part it works awesome! I do it a lot. :)
This is my favorite trick for the above method or if you are hanging art that already has wire across the back:
You'll hang your art on the front of the screw, hold the art where you want it on the wall, then push when you're ready:
And finally, how I hung those utensils on the wall! Drum roll please...
You wet the back and they get sticky -- you'll stick them to your surface (works best with paper or ceramic) and then let them dry before hanging. Make sure you follow the directions or it may not stick well. The strength will also depend on the item.
They didn't stick well to my utensils so I hot glued them to make sure they would stay:
There you go! A few of my tricks for hanging stuff on the wall! All of them work great and I hope you find them useful for your house. :)
Have you tried any of these tricks in your home? Any you use I didn't mention?
P.S. These are my tips for filling the holes if you have to move your art. :)
