    Wall hangings can be a pain to hang but for a small light one that won't be laundered much ( like Christmas, Halloween, etc) try this. Some pizza boxes come with air vents in the side strips. Cut the strips off, glue them on the back of the hanging and use the air holes in the center to hang on the wall with (air holes down). I put the colored part of the cardboard facing out to prevent any ink runs....works great and keeps everything nice and flat.

    Great tip! If it's not to heavy straight pins should hold it well and not leave big holes.

    Our house has this huge wall as you go down the steps to the basement so hubby wanted his Ne t shirt quilt hung up there. My daughter was home so had the two of them hold the ladder and I hung the quilt with straight pins along the top and down the quilt at every intersection. You can not tell what is holding that quilt up there!

    Great tip. And, a good reason to order a pizza. Wait a minute, you mean a clean, unused box......

    I use straight pins to hang many things. No big holes in the wall.

    I should have said frozen pizza...they come sealed in plastic. I have some great heavy pins that also work but if they fall out and you step on it and it gets stuck between your toes...yikes! Don't use those anymore.
