I do like the way professional framers put the wire on the back. It makes it easier to hang and helps make it more even.
So whenever I have a frame that needs wire, this is what I do:
You'll need a staple gun, wire cutters, some type of sturdy wire (I use floral wire which does the trick), and rubber pads (optional - but help to keep the frame "stuck" to the wall and prevents any scratching).
First, I take cut a piece of wire that is about two inches past the edge of the frame.
Then I use the staple gun to attach the wire to the frame and twist the remaining wire.
Then I staple a part of the twisted wire just to make it a bit more secure. The last thing I want is my picture falling off the wall !
Then I put the rubber sticker on the back corner. Typically, I would put one on each bottom corner, but because I didn't want take off the thing that stands up the frame, I only put it on the bottom right corner. That way it's even on the wall.
And now it's ready to be hung !
The frame is one of the brown ones I love from Kohl's. I have tons of them. And the print is from an old magazine I found in my Grandma's house. Looks good in the bathroom!
How do you hang up your frames?
