This little picture frame hanging tip is going to be a lifesaver for you!
Hang a picture in the right place the FIRST time!
It also makes DIY gallery walls a breeze to create.
Okay, maybe I’m being a little over dramatic. Maybe…
But you WILL love this picture frame hanging tip for creating easy gallery walls!
Where I learned this tip:
While on maternity leave, I had HGTV on in the background nearly every day.
On one of those days I happened to look up when Get It Sold with Sabrina Soto (sadly no longer airing) where Sabrina stages homes for hopes of a quicker sale.
Well, she was preparing to hang picture frames on the wall when she whipped out this homemade tool to mark the perfect placement of the frame on the wall!
So I decided to make my own version of this handy tool, and it is truly the best way to hang a picture frame for accuracy!
I decided to make a scaled down version with a nail and a clothespin since most of the photos I hang aren’t any larger than an 8×10.
I simply hammered a nail into a clothespin.
And if you’re curious as to why I used a clothespin its because
1) I have a ton of them and
2) Because the one end can double as an extra thick piece of wood so my nail will stay nice and straight when I use it.
It will catch over the head of the nail so be sure you’re using one with a large head.
(i.e. NOT a finishing nail.)
When I knew where I wanted the frame to go I simply gave the top of the frame a light tap…
You don’t need to hit it hard.
The nail is sharp and will make a mark on your wall with just a small amount of pressure
Did you just have a “why didn’t I think of that moment?”
I only ask because I SO did when I saw this on television!
This little picture frame hanging tip worked like a charm on my son’s new photo collage!
Each and every photo evenly spaced and hung right on the first try!
Creating a gallery wall from scratch is a piece of cake now!
Seriously, this is the EASIEST way to hang a picture frame accurately the FIRST time.
