You've just spotted a lovely print and decide to buy it... suddenly the doubt starts creeping in as these thoughts start popping in your head: "It's probably going to be hard to find a frame for this print..." "Where would I even get a frame from?" "I won't ever have the time to buy a frame, so I'll just be wasting money buying the print..."
Let me ease your internal doubts and deliberations. There are ways you can hang that lovely piece of art up in your home WITHOUT having to wander down multiple shop aisles, only to realise they don't have the frame you want!
You can go full-framed, tape the four corners, or just the top – the possibilities are endless with washi tape! Best thing is, you can easily move and change things up because washi tape won't damage the paint on your walls.
Putting your prints in clipboards mean that you can change it up according to the seasons or your mood. All you need is to use a nail to hang the clipboard up where you want. Try putting a few in a row for some impact!
All of us have seen those lovely cork boards in workspaces on Pinterest that have amazing prints mixed, magazine cuttings and other bits and bobs pinned to them – it's a great idea, but what if you didn't want to poke holes in the pristine print you've just bought? Bulldog clips are the answer! Just put a bulldog clip the top of the print, then hang the clip off a pin in the cork board. No holes in your print, lovely display.
Pegs on twine
Similar to the bulldog clips, mini pegs are another option. This time, hang them along some twine or wire that spans across one wall. Either use tape or nails secure the ends. The hanging prints will create a lovely curved effect along the wall, which turns the whole piece into a work of art.
Buy it framed!
I know, I know, technically you're still shopping for a frame. But if the seller offers a framed option, I'd take it! (Side note: I offer a framed option for all my prints 😉) It takes the agonising and decision making out of the equation, and you'll receive your print that could be hung on the wall immediately – EASY!
Mixing and matching the different ways will help liven up your home and add more visual interest! Do you have any clever ways of hanging your art up? Leave a comment below, I'd love to hear the ideas that you guys have 😊
