Have you holes all over
your wall from the effort of hits and trials on how to
hang pictures or wall decorations on the walls
correctly? Then, this article is for you. Many times
we use wrong hangers or make mistakes in hanging wall
decorations or pictures that lead to permanent scars
on the beloved walls of our dorm, apartment or home.
Here are a few suggestions to avoid this:
It is good to start by making a rough map of
the wall and positioning of pictures on the paper to decide
beforehand where to hang which picture.
Once decided, you can begin hanging your
pictures according to your drawing.
Use small sturdy nails and use studs for
placing nails on walls to avoid any damage to the wall,
especially when you are renting the apartment or living in a
dormitory, which may result in deductions from your deposit.
Studs and stud indicators can be found at
local hardware stores and help in centering pictures and
hanging them properly.
Ensure that the wire from which are going to
hang your picture or decoration on the wall is strong enough
to bear its weight and won't come loose while you are hanging
There are other ways to hang your pictures
than hammering nails into the walls. You can use removal
adhesive tape hangers instead or the 3M Hooks with command

and the picture, family photos towel hangers, valances or
other wall decorations can be easily centered and secured on

be placed on tables or dressers or collage type frames that
can fit several pictures and quite inexpensive to display your
photos or cut-outs of your favorite stars and actors.

decorate these frames to highlight your favorite photos.
