I have soft walls. Hate them. Where's a stud when you need it, you know what I mean? And I ain't talkin' men. ;)
I have had this hook I got at Cost Plus hanging in my half bath since we moved in, pretty much. Since I wanted to hang it in a spot that didn't have a stud we used anchors. But a couple weeks ago even the anchors weren't holding anymore, and my hook became homeless. So I have since been on a mission to find an alternative way to hang it, sans screws and more gaping holes in my wall (and hopefully hide the exisiting holes in my wall). An alternative, CREATIVE, fast fix way to hang it. Until I have time to properly patch and repaint, etc., etc.
Here is what I've finally come up with (after much trial and error). Sorry for the photo, there are no windows in this bathroom so I was stuck with the effects of automatic flash lighting.
Materials I used:
decorative wall hook
First I removed the glass from the frame. Then I mod podged scrap paper over the cardboard insert in the frame. Hung my frame on the wall using heavy nails. And I secured it to the wall with hot glue. (No throwing tomatoes!) Then I nailed the hook THROUGH the frame's cardboard backing into the wall with 2 more heavy nails.
I sure hope it holds up because it's freaking cute, isn't it?
