How to Hang a Canvas Without Leaving a Mark




Introduction: How to Hang a Canvas Without Leaving a Mark

About: Computer Engineering Undergrad. My parents like to do diy so I know a little about A LOT. DFTBA.

As I'm heading to college soon I've been looking for a way to hang my diy canvas projects without leaving a nail hole in the wall or going out and buying command hooks. This is the best solution I've found so far and I had everything I needed so I wanted to share it with y'all! Let me know if you have any questions!

Step 1: What You'll Need

1. What you want to hang up
2. Painters tape
3. Hot glue gun

Step 2: Design Your Layout

I am hanging a map that I split between 6 8x10 canvases so I just had a 2x3 grid, but you can design it however you'd like ?

Step 3: Hang the Canvases

Put hot glue on the back of the canvas and then position it on the tape. If it isn't level (like the lower left one) or if it's not where you want it feel free to pull the tape off the wall and reposition it!

Step 4: Enjoy Your Work

Yay, you did it! Now when it's time to take it off or change up your look just pull it off the wall and it should come off easily and pain free.
