How to Hang Frames on Walls Without Nails - Walmart.com - Walmart.com

Add a touch of charm to any room. Hang frames and create a gallery that wraps around the walls, all without any nails.

These instructions are for creating a gallery in a single horizontal line. But you can use the same technique to create a stacked gallery that wraps around a corner-just start by hanging the highest frames first and work your way down in rows.

Ideas for gallery images

You’re the curator of this gallery, and your options are limitless when it comes to what you feature. Here are some gallery ideas and themes to get you started:

Use the room’s decor as inspiration. Take cues from the colors, shapes, decor or theme of the room and mirror it with a variety of images. If the room has a relaxed beachy feel to it, choose images of shells. Or use a single color to unify a selection of different images. Scrapbook paper in a variety of colors and patterns and even images from old calendars look great framed.

Display your child’s artwork. This works especially well in your child’s room and gives his or her artwork a place of honor beyond the fridge.

Enjoy family photos. Set cherished family photos free from albums and hard drives. Experiment with printing photos in black and white or sepia to create different looks.

Get seasonal. Change out images based on the season or special holidays.

Before you start

Plan the layout. Make sure you have enough frames to go around the walls of a room or corner of a room. To figure out how many you’ll need and the spacing between each, measure the wall space you plan to use, and using the size of each frame, calculate the spacing between each. To roughly visualize your layout, line up the frames on the floor along the walls.

Prep surfaces. Use isopropyl rubbing alcohol to clean the backs of frames and wall areas where the frames will hang. Let the alcohol dry before proceeding.

Count out wall-mounting strips. You’ll also need two sets of wall-mounting strips per frame. To make a set, attach two strips to each other.

Prep your yardstick (or two). If you don’t have a laser level to help hang your frames at the same height and/or level on the wall, temporarily mounting a yardstick to the wall is a smart alternative. To prep your yardstick, attach one set of wall-mounting strips horizontally at each end. The pull tabs can face in or out; it doesn’t matter. Depending on your wall space, you may want to mount two yardsticks-or use a ruler instead. (You’ll attach the stick to the wall with the help of a level below.)

Step-by-step instructions: Framing an image

Remove matte from frame. Cut images so they’re a little larger than the matte opening. Using tape, attach images to the back of the mattes. Place matte back into frame.

Step-by-step instructions: Hanging the gallery

Attach two sets of wall-mounting strips to the back of each frame: one set on the left side and another set on the right side. Attach the yardstick (prepped with wall-mounting with strips) to the wall where you are creating your gallery. To do so in a straight line, use a bubble level as your hanging guide. Remove the backing from the strips, find a level line and press the yardstick into the wall. Repeat if you’re using more than one yardstick. (If you’re using a laser level, project a straight line on the wall.) When mounting the frames, start in the center of the wall and work out to each side. Remove the backing from the mounting strips, and place the bottom of the first frame against the yardstick. Then press it into place on the wall firmly for 30 seconds. Use the yardstick’s measurement markings to easily figure out the spacing between frames. You need to let the mounting strips set before they can hold the weight of the frame. Remove the frame from the wall by slowly pulling the frame’s bottom corners straight towards you. Wait one hour before re-mounting. When re-mounting, make sure to press the fasteners together until they click. Repeat with all of the frames. Carefully remove the yardstick by holding on the bottom and pulling up and away from the wall. When you’re ready to remove the strips, slowly pull on each tab, stretching it straight along the wall. Do not pull out towards you; pulling along the wall is important for a clean removal. Keep pulling at least 12 inches until the strip releases from the wall.

Follow package instructions for complete removal technique.
