How to hang a photo

5 STEPS

Tired of staring at the blank wall, spruce it up by hanging a picture or art piece.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Step

Locate wall centre

Locating the wall’s center is the first step. Measure the width, then determine the height you’d like the photo.

Step

Mark with pencil

Once you have the spot, you can mark the top of your frame near the center mark with a pencil. Then, mark the spot on the wall.

Step

Hammer nail on slight angle

Holding the nail on the spot, hammer in on a slight angle. Hang the frame on the nail.

Step

Hang photo, check level

Now that your photo is hung, use a level to ensure your photo is straight.

Step

Use a stud finder

Be sure to use a stud finder if you are hanging a heavier photo or mirror.
