How to hang your canvas
Step 1: Mark the wall
In pencil, mark where you want to place your canvas on the wall. Remember that the top of your canvas will sit slightly above your pencil mark.
Step 2: Hammer the wall hook into the marked spot
Carefully nail the hook into where you’ve marked the wall with pencil. Hammering the nail at a slight angle will ensure the wall takes most of the weight.
Step 3: Attach your bracket to the back of the canvas
Place it on the back of your canvas. Either at the top or on the sides – that bit’s up to you. Using your screwdriver, screw the bracket into place.
Step 4: Hang your canvas
Step back. Is it straight? Make any adjustments. And check it with a spirit level if you’ve one to hand.
Some questions you’ve asked us…
Can you hang a canvas without a hanging kit?
Yes. You can hammer a nail straight into the wall and put your canvas up. Though, it’s much more secure and less likely to need regular repositioning with a hanging kit.
Can you hang a canvas in the bathroom?
It’s not a great idea to hang your canvas anywhere that’s humid (places like your bathrooms or the kitchen) or where it’ll get a lot of direct sunlight. Otherwise, they won’t last as well.
