Hanging pictures without nails
Picture hanging systems are the easiest way to hang pictures without nails.
Why? You will never have to use a drill or other tools again once the system is in place. Simply add, adjust and rearrange pictures at will without any wall damage or effort. A flexible and secure solution.
In case you'd like to go the old fashioned way, here are some tips for hanging pictures without nails:
1. You can use sticky tape, masking tape is a good option. You can cut small portions and make small curved rolls from them. Stick those on every corner of your picture frame. The main disadvantage with this method, is that it’s likely to leave marks on your wall or wallpaper after removing your picture frame. Also, the weight of your wall decoration might cause it to fall down… so this is not the most tidy or secure option.
2. There are also special sticky hangers available. These work fine, but when you’d like to remove them, the paint and plasterwork might come off. These hangers can severely damage your wall and you’re likely to need to repair and repaint it!
3. There are flexible poster tacks you can use. These work like sticky tape, only they’re much less likely to cause damage to your wall. But they won’t hold up when you’re trying to hang picture frames that are somewhat heavy either!
4. Another way to hang pictures without nails is to use an existing hook and attach a cord to it. You can attach photos, pieces of paper or pictures without frames to it. This method won't do when you'd like to hang a rather heavy, framed picture.
Conclusion: hanging pictures without nails is done best with a picture hanging system!
