Hanging several pictures in a straight line can seem a bit daunting, but keep reading and your photo hanging fears will flee! I’m going to teach you how to hang a photo collage using a simple method that will have you saying, “Why didn’t I think of that??” Ready for it????
I decided to take our family pictures from this year (from Jessica Downey Photo) and put them on canvas. The sizes I ordered were kind of random- I didn’t think I was going to use all of these together and I wasn’t sure what size I wanted the big picture to be, but when I got them all together, I actually really liked them grouped.
(The sizes are 4- 12×12’s, 1- 24×32 & 1- 20×30)
Here is where the magic happens- are you still with me???
Simply add a small dot of toothpaste to the back of your picture where the nail(s) will go.
(Crest did not pay me for the above picture, though they totally should because it is the only toothpaste I will ever use and I could be a great spokesperson for them!)
Then, press the picture to the wall where you want to hang it so that the toothpaste from the back of your frame sticks to the wall.
Next, put your nail where the toothpaste is…
How simple is that????
Go ahead, you can thank me for saving you time and a bazillion holes in your walls!
