Picture walls make a great design feature, but putting lots of holes in your wall makes it difficult if you want to move them or put them in a different location.
With Command™ Picture Hanging Strips and hooks, you can hang pictures wherever you want without leaving any residue or damage behind.
Follow our step-by step guide to bring your own picture wall ideas to life without causing any damage.
Lay out all of your frames on the floor and have a play around with the positioning before you hang. You don’t have to just use photos for your gallery; cuttings, postcards, or artwork work just as well.
Once you’re happy with your floor layout, measure the width and height of your gallery and then mask out the area to size on your wall space using masking tape.
Apply Command™ Picture Hanging Strips to the back of the frames. Make sure that you use the right size strip for the weight of the frame, for example 4 pairs of Large Picture Hanging Strips hold up to 7.2kg!
Starting from the bottom corner, remove the liners from the back of the Command™ Strips and position your first frame onto the wall. Apply firm pressure to the frame with the palms of your hands, making sure the strips are stuck firmly in place.
Work your way up from the bottom, adding more frames. If you need to reposition, gently pull the frame away from the wall so that the strips are separated and click back into place.
Now the strips are all in place, remove the frames from the wall and leave for an hour to allow the strips time to bond fully to the wall. Click back into place and voila you have the perfect wall gallery without a nail in sight!
No drills or tools required! Command™ Strips can be used on a variety of smooth surfaces including painted walls, tile, glass and wood. Our water resistant and outdoor strips can be used in all weathers and conditions.
Command™ Strips use a clever adhesive that holds strongly for as long as you need, then removes cleanly. Remember to wait one hour for the adhesive to bond and check the hooks weight limit on the pack!
Easy to remove - damage free! Simply stretch off to remove cleanly with no holes, marks or mess. Remember to pull the tab straight down slowly for damage free removal.
Command™ Strips combine a number of trusted 3M technologies, to give you high performance products for all your organising and decorating needs.
