EASY step-by-steps TO HANGING A PICTURE
Paper templates will help you plan your gallery so you don’t pound a million holes in the wall.
Gather your supplies
• Roll of paper or newspaper sheets
• Ruler, pencil, scissors and painter’s tape
• Picture hanging nails, screws or fixings
• Hammer or screwdriver
STEP 1 Create paper templates by tracing the outline of each frame on paper. Cut out the templates.
STEP 2 Place each frame face down, stretch the hanging wire toward the centre top of the frame. Measure from the top edge down to the wire. Make a note of the measurement.
STEP 3 Mark each template’s centre at the depth of each hanger (as noted in Step 2).
STEP 4 Use painter’s tape to arrange templates on the wall to your liking. Drive a nail or screw into wall at each mark. Remove templates and hang your frames.
