By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Conventional picture hooks 50 lbs. 
Drill bit 1/64 inch
Finishing nails
Hangers kit
Level 2-foot  
Utility hook picture hangers  

Mrs H. called my repair service to remove and clean a decorative metal ornament in her kitchen.

This post shows three different decorative metal art and how each one was hung. 

Step 1: Fig.1 above shows 50 lbs. conventional picture hooks placed on the left side. Nothing fancy here the metal art is green and so is the hook.  Once up and hook just disappear. 
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the hook is now placed on the right side. None of these hooks are in any studs. The finishing nail is large enough and placed at an angle to give the support this piece of art needs against the wall.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the finished decorative art complete with candles.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows a utility hook picture hanger.

Step 5: Fig.5 shows chrome sawtooth hanger was placed on the back of this plastic flower wall pot. Pre-drilled the holes with a 1/64 inch drill bit and then push the nail into the hanger and tap with a hammer the rest of the way. Tap do not hit hard or the pot will be damaged.

Step 6: Fig.6 shows the finished Decorative plastic art.

Step 7: Fig.7 and fig.8 shows utility hook picture hanger hung with the help of a 2-foot level. Two hangers were placed on the wall so that two hooks could hang and hold a decorative beveled mirror. Fig.9 shows the finished product. The mirror is hung and another decorative artwork is placed on the wall.
