DIY Frame Hooks

 

Pictures of frames on the wall

I haven’t done any home projects in two months because I’ve been finishing writing my book! Friends, let me tell you, that took every ounce of my physical, mental, creative and emotional energy, so thank you for sticking with me through that whole process because it was a wild ride! And prepare for preorders in November!!!!

Recently, I was in the At Home store and I saw these cute frames but I loved them for the hooks on the back! I literally bought every single one that the local At Home store had.

When I bought these frames I thought the way they were displayed in the At Home store was the way that I could hang them on the wall. I loved the decorative hooks on the top of them that I thought looked like cute little bunny ears! lol

I came home and took the frame out of the packaging and to my surprise…. the hooks are NOT part of the frame! Turns out they are NOT decorative hooks. They were just on the frame to hang in the store. #facepalm #blondemoment

 

Hooks for Frames

So I was left with all these cute metal triangles and I really wanted them to hang the photos by, so here’s what I did.

I took the cardboard piece that’s supposed to go into the trash and cut out a few inches in the middle where the nail would originally go.

Then I hot glued the piece of cardboard to the back of the frame. Since the frames are lightweight, hot glue was enough to hold the frames.

It was as easy as that!
