How to hang anything on your walls… perfectly!

Until I discovered this little trick to hanging objects on a wall, I tried to avoid purchasing anything that had more than one screw mount…. seriously. But not anymore!!

This week I found these cute mirrored candle holders from the dollar store for only $3!!

So, I grabbed two for myself and then went back to get more for pretty much every woman in my family…. It was just too good of a deal to pass up.

Now for hanging them – The first step is to grab some painter’s tape and cover the screw mount holes on the back of the frame.

Then poke a hole where the screw will sit in the mount.

After that step, just remove the tape and place it on the wall where you’ll be hanging your frame.

It’s best to use a level at this point to make sure the tape isn’t crooked on the wall. Once the tape is level just put your screws in the holes.

  1. This is a great tip! I’m always struggling with hanging almost anything on the wall. Knowing me, I’d still get the tape uneven!

  2. What a great idea. I wish I had seen this 2 weeks ago before we hung all our pictures. You are such a genius Jolie :)
