Guest Post – Hanging Multiple Frames by Whimsical Whimsies

Christy from Whimsical Whimsies is here today to show you are really easy way to hang multiple frames.  We have all had to do this at one point and it takes so much time to figure out how to place each frame so that they are perfectly placed.  This tutorial is going to save you A LOT of headache!

When designing our hallway makeover, I wanted to find an easy way to hang the pictures. I found a fabulous idea that I’m going to share with you.
What I used for this was:  
wax paper 
tape measure 
pencil 
tape 
nails
 framed pictures
I measured the walls where I planned to hang the pictures. Then I laid out my wax paper on the floor.

I placed the frames on the paper, just as I wanted them to appear on the wall. Then, I traced around each frame.

Next, I turned each frame over directly under it’s outline on the wax paper.

I marked the location of the frame’s hanger on the wax paper.

At this point, the layout of the pictures was precisely marked on the wax paper and it was time to get it taped to the wall.

After measuring, making sure it was level, and taping it to the wall it was time to put the nails in the wall. I was SO excited to get to this point! It felt like such a build up to the finale of picture hanging!  I know. I don’t have enough going on in my life. I get excited about the little things. :o)

After the nails were in place, I just removed the wax paper. So easy! No nailing and re-nailing….easy.

Isn’t it a fabulous idea?  I have been using regular paper to hang multiple frames.  You can check out my method here.  HOWEVER Christy’s method is A LOT better!  The use of wax paper is pure GENIUS!!
Thanks for sharing with us Christy!!
Have a GREAT day everyone!

  1. Wow! So simple but effective! Why the heck didn’t I think of doing this when I was decorating my house? I bet it would look a heck of a lot better with straight picture frames, bahahah! Thanks for sharing!
