      Great Picture Hanging Tip- put a nail through a piece of wood and hang picture on it. Hold in place over wall and when its in the right spot, push against wall leaving a mark for you to place the actual nail you will hang picture from. Link goes to tutorial.

      Easy peasy way to determine where to hang picture, mirror, etc., on wall. CAUTION: If you're using a picture hanger with a hook on it instead of just a nail, you will want to MAKE SURE the HOOK is where the nail mark is on the wall, not where you will put the nail. The nail will be a little higher than your mark. (where the 'hook' should be.) Get the idea?

      Hammer nail through a wooden ruler. Hang picture on that nail. Line it on the wall where you want it. Remove picture, push in nail to make an indent. Remove ruler, hammer another nail into the wall Hang your perfect picture up.

      picture hanging tip- put nail partially through a piece of wood. Hang picture on the nail and push into the wall where you want to hang. Now you have a mark where the nail goes.

      Picture Hanging Tip - hammer nail just barely through a piece of wood, hang picture from it, position on wall where you want it, when you get it right gently press to make a small mark on the wall where you should then hammer the picture hanging nail - LOVE it!

      Best ever picture hanging tip: 1) Put a nail into a piece of scrap wood, just poking out enough to secure the nail. 2) Hang picture on the other side of the nail (flat head end). 3) Position where you would like to hang. 4) Gently press nail into the wall, leaving a mark exactly where you want it!
