Hanging prints at home with Command™ Picture Hanging Strips

Brought to you by Command™ Picture Hanging Strips.

I move prints around in my home all the time. Of course, every time I do this I end up with holes on my walls (which annoys my husband to no end). I’ve been wanting to put these huge 60 x 90cm prints up for a while, but I haven’t been able to decide on where they would look best.

So instead of whacking a few more holes on the walls, I was glad when Command™ Picture Hanging Strips came to my rescue! I could put the prints up, take some photos and then decide on which spot works better. Actually, YOU can help me!

I bought the prints online (I wrote about them here), got them printed at Officeworks and I purchased the large frames for $15 from Kmart.

I haven’t used the Command™ Picture Hanging Strips before, but was eager to give them a go. They come in so many different sizes to suit your wall hanging. I made sure I picked the right strip for the size of the frame. There is a handy guide on the back. So for me, I need the strips to hold 7.2kg as the instructions say they will hold a 60 x 90cm frame.

I positioned the strips as per the instructions – 4 x sets of strips on each frame.

They were so easy to put on the wall. Remove the little plastic sticker back and then push the frame on… If they are a little crooked you can easily re-position. You can watch a good video here too.

All you have to do is gently pull the frame upwards from the bottom and you’ll hear a velcro sound.

  • You then need to press firmly for 30 seconds before removing – left behind will be 4 strips and the matching ones will be on the frame.
  • Ideally remove the picture for 1 hour before re-hanging for maximum strength.

The strips come in both black and white – I used the black ones here as they were easier for me to photograph.


I had a go at removing them altogether and it’s easier than ever. Just gently pull the flap directly down and it’ll be off in a matter of seconds.

But then I wasn’t sure if I really liked them in this spot, so I decided to add another set of strips and place the frame on an opposite wall to see what they would look like…

    I like the pic on the left. I feel they give your green vignette some depth. In the hallway they’re nice but it looks a bit gallery-ish…

    Well you’ve inspired me! I’ve been in my new home for over 4 months and I’m too scared to hang anything. These look perfect! Oh and I like the right 🙂

    Left for me. Just love the light and the lighthouse pic together and the greenery adds depth. It all works wonderfully. The aged care place where my mum lives use these in the residents rooms. They work really well and allow them to have some of their photos etc from home on their walls without any damage.

    The left defiantly.. It looks more complete. All the elements work together to make a whole, but at the same time each of them have a starring role in the scene – if that makes sense! Hahaha

    I love the one on the left. I think they fit nicely in this area…..Maybe one bigger print or a print in landscape instead of portrait on the right?

    Left! I love how they fit perfectly on this wall and go with your gorgeous floor display. I’ve been wondering about these command strips. We moved back into our renovated house 6 months ago and I am definitely ready and eager to do my photo wall. Just the idea of putting all those holes and picture hooks in was putting me off!

    The left is my favourite. Lovely prints. I use the Command strips all the time as my 15 year old daughter loves to paint on canvases. She has such an array of her artwork on her bedroom walls and she can change things around easily with no marks left on walls.
    She asked me once if I minded her putting her art up everywhere and I replied with ” least you don’t have Bon Jovi, Wham and INXS pictures like I did”!

    Definitely the one of the left! The corner as a whole look complete and the pictures make it perfect. I don’t like the one on the right as I think there’s too much negative space and, to my eye, it looks ‘off’.
