How to Hang Wall Art

To hang art on your walls, you need some way to fasten them to your porch. If you have wood siding, then it's pretty easy. But if you have brick or vinyl siding, it takes more care.

Wall Art Ideas - How to Make Freestanding Decorating Hangers (DIY)

We have another way to hang outdoor art work on your porch without making holes or drilling through brick or siding.

This simple and inexpensive solution works great almost anywhere - all you need is a floor and ceiling. We've used it indoors and out and it works like a charm.

Although it is not meant for heavy objects, it is perfect for hanging artwork, lights, holiday decorations, wreaths, holiday lights and a host of your favorite items. And it only takes a few minutes.

Here's how to create you own freestanding hanger:

  • Measure the distance from your ceiling to the floor and subtract 1 inch.
  • Purchase inexpensive 1x2 lumber (cut to length), 3/8 inch t-nuts, and 3/8 inch by 2 inch carriage bolts at your local home supply store.
  • Drill a 3/8 inch hole 2 1/4 inches deep in the bottom of the 1x2(s).
  • Tap the t-nut(s) into the holes.
  • Insert the bolts in the t-nuts leaving about 3/4 inch exposed.
  • Paint the 1x2s if so desired. Let dry.
  • Place felt on the top of the 1x2s to protect the ceiling.
  • Position the 1x2s flat against the wall. With the top of the 1x2 against the ceiling, unscrew the bolt at the bottom until the 1x2 is securely lodged between the ceiling and floor (place felt under bolt head to protect floor). Make snug; do not over tighten.
  • Attach your favorite artwork, wreath, pictures, lights, or holiday decorations to the 1x2s with small nails, screws, or hooks, etc.
  • Use as many 1x2s as you need. You can paint the 1x2 sides different colors for different holidays. Attach two or more and hang lattice over them. Now you have a perfect trellis for climbing plants or hang additional artwork or memorabilia.
They work really well in kids rooms for posters and other fun decorations - no more tape on your walls! You can even use them under cabinets or in closets to hang handy items.

This method is ideal for porches as you don't have to make holes in siding or drill into brick. They are easy to remove or to relocate to another area of your porch which makes them ideal for porch decorating.

Drilling Method

Although I recommend any of the above options over drilling into the side of your home, sometimes drilling is the best solution. For example, if you want to hang something that is heavy and needs to be secured, then drilling is probably the way to go.

Drilling in brick or concrete requires the use of a drill, concrete bit, and concrete screw. I really recommend using a hammer drill rather than an ordinary drill but it can be done with either.

I also recommend using Tapcon screws. You can find these at your local home building supply store.

If drilling into wood, a regular drill and drill bit will work fine.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have about hanging outdoor wall art on your porch; we are happy to offer suggestions.
