Have you ever heard of an idea where you instantly thought, why didn’t I think of this idea myself? There’s nothing worse than starting to redecorate your house and finding a million holes in the walls throughout your home. Your simple task of redecorating just turned into a full blown patch and paint job.
When I was young, I would use clear scotch tape to hang posters on my bedroom walls. I quickly learned that eventually the tape wouldn’t hold or that the tape would pull some of the paint from the wall. The tape method also only worked for lightweight items such as posters. Picture frames and other heavy items would require a screw or nail. However, my parents weren’t too keen on me using nails to hang my New Kids On The Block posters all over my bedroom! What was a girl to do? Well, today, teens, tweens and the rest of us can use some of the newly introduced hook and loop solutions to solve these problems.
VELCRO® Brand removable picture hangers
Within the VELCRO® Brand hook and loop fastener line is a new product called the VELCRO® Brand removable picture hanger. These fasteners can be used to hang your family photos (or framed, New Kids On The Block posters) without causing any damage to the walls of your home. These are extremely easy to use and can be removed and relocated throughout your home without leaving holes in the walls. For lightweight pictures and decorative items this is a great solution.
If you have a great deal of picture frames or you would like to incorporate this idea throughout your entire home you might want to stock up. In this case, a better solution might be to make your own hook and loop picture frame hangers. You can do this by simply buying rolls of adhesive-backed hook and loop material (often called “sticky back” hook and loop tape). Cut sections of hook and place them on the walls. Places matching size pieces of loop sections on your artwork and then mate the pieces together on your walls.
Granted, there are so many types of solutions for hanging artwork, from gum-like putty, to special nail sets, hooks and tapes. Just walk into your local Container Store and you will find an entire aisle dedicated to these solutions. But for my taste, ‘sticky back’ hook and loop tape or the newer, Velcro® brand Picture Hangers can’t be beat.
