How To Hang Pictures

I decided to take our family pictures from this year and put them on canvas. I ordered my canvases here from CanvasDiscount and I absolutely love them!  They look fantastic and they’re prices are some of the best I’ve seen. 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.  Then when I put them all together, I actually really liked how they 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.

Then, press the picture to the wall where you want to hang it.  The toothpaste from the back of your frame will then stick to the wall.
