After I made an aerator for my Sea Monkeys, I had trouble hanging my digital photo frame on the wall when the nail kept slipping flush with the wall.
The digital photo frame also serves as a memory card reader when I need to get pictures off the camera at work, but I have to take the frame off the wall to put in the card and the USB cable and I always had a hard time re-hanging the frame so I wanted some way to keep the nail from slipping.
Since I already had the straws out, I decided to try something and this instructable was born.
Step 1: Tools and Supplies
You could use a ruler too but the measurements aren't that precise so that's optional.
I'm doing this at work so I only used items readily available to me (I found a stash of bendy straws in the kitchen)
