      Easy way to hang a picture: Put toothpaste on the picture's hanger, eyeball where you want to hang it, press against the wall, then place the nail in the toothpaste spot on the wall. Wipe off toothpaste and hang picture!

      Use toothpaste on picture hooks. Toothpaste marks the wall where you want it placed and allows you to easily nail and hang pictures. Brilliant! (My problem is always figuring out how low to hang the next picture, so I would also add some toothpaste to the bottom of the fram also.)

      Easily Hang Pictures -Put a little dab of toothpaste right on the end of picture hook. Take your picture and hold it up where you want it without touching the wall. Once it is were you want it, gently tap the frame against the wall. Hammer your nail right were your toothpaste mark is. Wipe the toothpaste off the wall. Wipe the toothpaste off the frame. Hang your picture! If you have multiple hooks on the back of the picture this works great. You can easily fit the nails perfectly in each hook.
