Choose a Hanger
The first step to hang your metal art involves choosing a hanger. Make sure the hanger you choose is strong and can withstand the weight of your metal art. Sometimes, metal art comes with its own hangers, but most of the time, you have to purchase them. You can use a picture wire to hang your art easily. Before hanging your art, make sure to mount your piece on the wall. Since metal is heavy, hanging your art without a mounted stud might seriously damage your wall.
Mark Your Spot
When mounting a stud in the wall, make certain to know exactly where you’re hanging your art. Make pencil marks to remember where you wish to make the stud and where to place your metal art. Marking the spot with your pencil will prevent your wall from damage.
Secure the Hanger
By now, you should’ve marked your spot and mounted a stud. The next step is to use a screwdriver or a drill to screw the hanger on the stud. Be careful when using a drill – make sure to wear proper equipment to protect your hands and eyes. Try not to leave electrical equipment lying around when there are kids in the house.
Your screw should be long enough that the stud goes through the wall. A small part of the stud should be left out, so you can easily hang your metal art on it.
Hang Your Metal Art on the Hanger
The last step is to carefully hang your metal art on the hanger. Before hanging it, make sure the stud is strong enough to hold it; otherwise, it may damage your art and your wall. After hanging your metal art, always check if it is even from both sides. If it’s not straight, adjust your piece until it is in an even position.
