How to Hang an Art Collection

Emily Henderson, winner of HGTV’s “Design Star” and host of “Secrets from a Stylist” posted this brilliant tip for hanging a collection of artwork over on her blog.

These step by step instructions not only are great for those of us who like to compose things visually, they also take the guesswork out of getting your vision onto the wall and fine-tuning it without (and this is key) putting any unnecessary holes in the wall.

The steps consist of laying out the pieces on the floor in a balanced composition, then creating a paper template to tape to the wall. Once the template is in place and you are satisfied with it, drive your nails through the paper, tear it off and hang the artwork in its place. Easy.
