After discovering and purchasing art you love, the next step is finding a place (and a way) to hang it! And while most of us default to a frame, there are SO many more ways to hang your art on your walls. Read on for our five faves.
a regular frame
If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. We love framing our prints because, well, it works. It looks good and also protects your pricier (or sentimental!) works of art.
Clipping your artwork has become the new tape. It causes no damage to your prints (score!) and clips can be found at your local office supply or craft store—at very cheap prices. Simply nail, clip, hang, repeat. Choose to clip all four corners or just the top two, whichever you prefer stylistically.
Washi tape doesn’t damage prints, but it’s also not a recommended way to hang your investment pieces. Add some spice to your walls by taping up additional designs after securing your print to the wall. We love this super shiny tape we picked up at our local art supply store.
It’s no secret we’re a fan of the ledge gallery wall. Leaning—instead of hanging—means you can rearrange your art more frequently and with ease. Also, styling shelves with meaningful (and trendy) pieces is just plain fun.
Try a dowel in a bohemian-inspired space. The light wood texture gives off a natural, almost beachy vibe. And again, there will be no damage to your print, but there will also not be glass (or plastic) guarding it from harm.
