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

Here’s how

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.
