So, you have viewed the vast array of pictures and hand painted wall art and selected the perfect piece. Now you need to know how-to hang the picture or wall art on the wall.
Ever wonder how the pros seem to hang pictures or wall art the very first time and without making the wall look like swiss cheese? Well, worry know longer. This video will show you how-to pictures or wall art like a pro.
To get started, gather your supplies. For this project you will need:
Picture or Wall Art Craft Paper (I have even used left over holiday paper)Scissors Writing Instrustment (Pen, Pencil) Ruler or Tape MeasurePainters Tape Hammer Hanging Supplies (Picture Hook, Nail)
Follow these easy steps:
A great way to test the placement of the picture or wall art before putting hammer to nail is by laying everything out on a table or on the floor.
Trace around the picture or wall art and mark the hanging points.
Then, tape the paper to the wall and hammer in the nail.
Remove the paper, and voila! Now you know how-to hang your favoite picture or wall art like a pro.

Thanks for giving us information and teaching us how to hang pictures and wall art. Great blog !
Thanks - glad you found the tips useful!
I really love this idea. . . it will eliminate the inevitable "is it straight" argument every time. :D
Great idea. I'd have to still use a bubble level to tell me if my top line was straight, but this is a great way to position the wall art before you start hammering.
Suzan - using a level along with this technique is a great idea! (Especially if you're arranging a grouping of photos, like on a gallery-style wall.)
