Morning readers! Yesterday I showed you a fun little housewarming party activity we did here at Casa DA when we had some friends over this past fall. We had them decorate plates to hang in our house with their well wishes for our first place. Today I’m going to show you how to hang plates on the wall. It’s so easy and you can do it without seeing any of the hardware too.
This was such a fun project to create some sweet memories in our new place. First the secret is Dischangers. I first saw these on The Lettered Cottage way back and kept them in the back of my mind to use some day. I wanted them because you don’t see any hardware to hang items. Simple and clean-lined, that’s what I wanted. They are easy to order online and shipped super quick considering they came from England.
To use them, you moisten the disc and secure it to the back of your plate then let it dry overnight. Make sure you wait, even if you want them up right away. You don’t want any plates crashing to the ground cause the glue is wet!
To make my arrangement I used a technique I saw online where you make a grid of your art on a piece of paper and then hang it on the wall, then nail in the holes, hang up your art, pull the paper away and presto! Art on the wall. This actually can be done with different wall arrangements, plates, art or photos, etc.
To get started I pulled out a piece of packing paper that came in box from an item I ordered. I was that thick butcher paper. I laid it out on the counter space which was just about as big as my wall area.
Then I arranged the plates on the paper how I wanted them to look on the wall. This way I could move them around without having to hammer a new hole in the wall. This was only a visual.
Then I removed the paper from under the plates and hung it up on the wall with painter’s tape. Now you’ll see the placement of your art/plates.
Once you carefully remove the paper, you’ll have all your nails all ready to go.
Hoped you learned something today with our plate art! Let me know if you’ve tried any techniques to hang things up, I’d love to hear about them.
