Hanging Art Salon Style with Ken Wingard

  • Gather the items you plan to include in your arrangement.
  • Using a large sheet of kraft paper (or grocery bags), place each item on the paper, then trace around the items individually.
  • Remove the objects and cut out the tracings.
  • Mark where the hook on the frame is with a pencil on the kraft paper.
  • Tape the paper cutouts to the wall with painter's tape in an arrangement to your liking. Rearrange the shapes until a final layout is reached.
  • Hammer the nails into the marked paper, then remove the paper cutouts.
  • Hang the art or photos on the nails.
