Hang Pictures Easily Using Duct Tape So They're Perfectly Straight

It involves a very common household item.

This season isn't just about spring cleaning. It's also about redecorating and giving your home a fresh look. And if you're doing some rearranging, chances are you're putting up new art and decor on your walls. But if you're like us, you know trying to hang frames can be difficult -- especially if they have two or more hooks. Luckily, Aimee from It's Overflowing found a clever way to hang pictures easily using duct tape.

First, measure and mark the distance between the holes in the frame on a piece of the adhesive. Then, using a level so it's straight, place the tape onto the wall. Finally, drill into the correct spots, then remove the tape and viola!

Say goodbye to crooked decor. This trick is super helpful in making sure everything looks perfect in your home. And if you're looking to add a frame to your wall without leaving a mark, Apartment Therapy suggests using hanging strips.
