Hang Pictures Easily Using Toothpaste



Hanging pictures can be frustrating and time-consuming. How many times have you flipped a frame over and said, “Oh no, its one of those frames with the two hooks”.

If you have trouble hanging pictures straight then try using the toothpaste method from the industrial cottage weblog.

I guarantee it will make you a more efficient picture hanger 🙂

  1. Simply put a little dab of toothpaste right on the end of the hook.
  2. Take your picture and hold it up where you want it without touching the wall.  Once it is were you want it, gently tap the frame against the wall. You will leave a little toothpaste mark on the wall.
  3. Hammer your nail where the toothpaste mark is
  4. Wipe toothpaste of the wall

  • Hi, just wanted to mention, I loved this post. It was practical. Keep on posting!

  • Hi Joseph–loved this idea. One of those “why didn’t I think of this? moments. If it’s ok with you, I’m going to post it on my business facebook page next week and give you credit of course. Are you ok with that?
