It really is this EASY! No Wire? No Problem. Sometimes art and framed pictures come with two hooks and no wire to hang it from. This video shows a simple technique to hang a picture without a wire and get it perfect and level without a lot of math and measuring.

What you will do to hang the picture is transfer the location of the hooks or eyelets to a long level or other straight piece of materiel, even the top of the picture frame will work. Then you will transfer those marks to the wall and location where you want to hang the picture.


  • Level or straight edge with a small level
  • Masking Tape
  • Tape Measure
  • Pencil
  • Some type of picture hook, nail or screw to hang the picture.

If you have a lighter picture like the art in this video, then you can use a nail or screw, if you have a heavier picture, then you will need some sort of stronger picture hanging hook.
