There are situations when you really need to hang a picture on the wall without nails and drilling: for example, the apartment is rented, you don’t want to spoil the wall with holes, disturb the neighbors, or just your husband is not at home. It was then that very simple and effective ways come to our aid that will help you hang a picture, panel, poster, or photo on the wall without using a drill. Whether you are posting an anime poster or any other picture on a wall, choose which one you like best!
1. Paperclip or Clothes Hook
If you have wallpaper on your wall, make a small horizontal cut in it, fill it with superglue and place a paperclip bent into the shape of a hook or a regular clothes hook, and then cover the cut with wallpaper. You can even find several videos on step-by-step instructions for “implanting” paper clips into wallpaper.
This method is similar to the previous one. Here, too, the base itself is “hidden under the wallpaper” and glued, and the protruding part acts as a carnation, on which you can hang a not very heavy picture. In the video below, you can see how to effectively hide the base of the button behind the wallpaper.
3. Spider hook
In the hardware store you can buy a special device called a “spider hook”: but it has four pointed ends that are well attached to the wall with a hammer and leave virtually no marks on it. Such a hook is securely held on any wall, you can hang a picture or a frame weighing up to 2 kg on it.
Another way to place light paintings is to stick a sewing needle into the wall. For example, you can gently drive a tailor’s pin with a head into the wallpaper at an angle. Another option: break off the eye of a sewing needle with pliers and simply drive it into the wall with a sharp end. Thus, the hole in the wall is small and inconspicuous, unlike nails or screws. At the same time, with an ama needle, steel and durable, securely holds the frame.
5. Double sided tape
This method is suitable for walls with thin paper wallpaper or drywall partitions. Just stick the usual double-sided tape on the edges of the frame and attach it to the wall. True, the disadvantage of this method is that the adhesive tape can leave marks on the wall; to prevent this from happening, it is recommended to keep the tape at a 90-degree angle with respect to the wall when removing the picture.
6. Liquid nails
Liquid nails are a special adhesive that securely connects surfaces. Just apply liquid nails to the back of the frame in small dots (if the picture is heavy, you can smear the entire frame). Then press the picture exactly against the wall surface and hold for a few seconds.
7. Polymer adhesive
Polymer glue is convenient in that it does not leave greasy marks behind. The principle is the same as with liquid nails: we glue a heavy picture around the entire perimeter, and a light picture only along the edges. For better adhesion to the surface, the frame must be firmly pressed and even left for a day, propped up with something
