Hanging a canvas painting is easy with a few simple tools! Whether you want to hang a large statement piece in an entranceway or a small, child's painting in a family room, the process is still straightforward and simple. First, calculate the correct height for the centre of your canvas to be from the ground. Then install either a wire hanging or a sawtooth hanger so that you can hang the canvas securely. If you want a quick, simple method, you can also just hang the canvas on a broad-headed nail.
