How to Hang Your Canvas Art
Our canvas art is either printed or laminated
directly onto the canvas. Our experts carefully stretch the canvas around wooden canvas bars using either the museum or gallery wrap method.
Canvas artwork ordered from FramedArt.com does not come with the nails to hang the canvas, only the canvas is
included in the box. Click here to read more about our canvas art.
What You Will Need
1. wall space
2. canvas art
3. two nails
6. stud finder (optional)
Step One - Find a place to hang the canvas
The first step to getting your canvas on the
wall is simply finding a spot in the room to hang the canvas. If you have not bought your canvas yet, keep in mind the size of the
space you are trying to fill when shopping. You do not want a canvas that will be too big nor too small so the piece will be noticed without
overpowering the room.
One way to give more support for the canvas is
by using a stud finder. The stud finder will find a stud in the wall, which is the best place to put the nails. If you hammer the nails into a stud,
it will give more support for the hanging canvas.
Step Two - Make it even
Now that you have found the perfect spot for
your canvas piece, you want to make sure it is even. Hold the canvas art up flesh against the wall. For best results, make sure the level is
sitting directly on top of the canvas and is flesh against the wall. Make necessary adjustments to the canvas until the level shows that it
Step Three- Make a mark
Keep the canvas in place and remove the level
from on top of the canvas. Using a writing utensil, mark on top of the canvas with either two dots (where the nails will go) or a straight line.
These marks will be covered by the canvas once it is hung.
Step Four - Hammer the first nail into the wall
Line up the first nail with your mark on the wall. Using the
hammer, insert the nail into the wall (not all the way in so the backing of the canvas can hook on and hang from the nail).
Step Five - Hammer the second nail into the wall
Secure the second nail into the wall using the mark on the wall from step three.
Like the first nail, make sure the second nail is not hammered all the way into the wall.
Step Six - Hang the canvas
Once the nails are hammered in place in the wall, take the
frame and place the top bar on the back of the frame on top of the nails. If your canvas is slightly askew, you may need to slightly bend the nails up or down.
Step Seven - Show it off
Now your canvas artwork is completely hung and ready to show off!
