How to Hang a Small Wall Hanging

I had mentioned in a previous post that Melinda had shared with me an easy way to hang the small wall hanging she gifted me.

First you will need three small safety pins and three straight pins.

I attached the safety pins to the quilt at each top end as well as the middle.

I  then held the quilt up to the wall and placed pencil marks where the pins were located.

I stuck my straight pins into the wall at the tic lines. Then I looped the safety pins over the straight pins. It worked like a charm.

And it looks so pretty hanging on the wall in my bedroom at Grimmwood.  This might encourage me to make some of my finished cross stitch pieces into wall hangings.

That looks wonderful on the wall. I love quilted items, but as I have said before I don't have the patience for it.

Thank you for sharing that wall hanging tip, Arlene. And the one your friend gave you is absolutely beautiful! You did a great job with the hanging. And I recognize that Young Living diffuser. ;) It looks just like the one on my nightstand. :)

I hang things that way too! Fabric things. For just about everything else I use wire nails. Tiny ones. Louis Dean is always amazed how I can hang so much on such a tiny nail. But I have probably 1,000 things hung on the walls of my house!
Are you missing Grimmwood? I’m missing thevranch. I don’t get tired there like I do here at home.

Well, how easy was that?! This hint will come in handy at Christmas because I have several fabric pieces I like to hang on the wall. Thanks!!

What a helpful tip, Arlene. I have no quilts, but am thinking of dabbling in English paper piecing, so--who knows? Maybe some day!
