    HI all,

    I am the wife of a contractor, and my hubby doesn't like me putting holes into walls to hang quilts & things. I recently finished hand quilting a small Dresden Plate, and I got the idea it would be cool to hang it diagionally in my sewing room on my closet door to add some color to the room. I knew I couldn't nail into the door, so I came up with an idea. I sewed a small plastic ring (I believe they're used for curtains, and I bought them at Walmart), and then used one of those removeable hooks. It really works great, and now I'm planning on making 4 different Dresdens for the 4 different seasons.

    Just figured I'd share my idea in case other hubbys out there are just like mine. :) Hope you are all having a great day.

    I love the removable hooks, a bit pricey but my hubby likes them also.

    Pop tops from cans work well for this too.

    I have an old house with plaster walls and these little hangers work great-can't put nails in plaster. Thanks for the idea to use them on doors.

    Gorgeous and such a great idea. My Husband doesn't care if I hang things, I do all the finish work patching and painting.
