I'm Lindsey Ralston and this is how to hang pictures without wire. Today, I'm going to show you how to take a picture frame that may or may not have some molding or a hook on the back and make it easy to hang on the wall. I'll be using my favorite picture hanging hooks as well as showing you how to add items on the back of your frame to make them hangable. Okay, to get the pictures hung on the wall without wire, what we are going to do is attach the brass finish picture hangers to the wall and you are going to place the hook on the wall, use your hammer and hammer in the nail to get the hook placed on the wall where you want it and then I'll show you two different picture frames that I'm looking at. One of the picture frames as you can see already has a nice wood frame to it with an indent. The second one I'll show you is a picture frame that actually doesn't have a natural place to hang on the back. To troubleshoot this, I've got a saw tooth picture hanger that I'm going to simply hammer on the back of this frame, kind of center it on the back part here, hammer that on and then once that's up, flip it over, hang it on your picture hook and those are two ways to hang without using wire.
