Hanging Frames Vertically on a Tall Skinny Wall

A tall, skinny wall is the ideal spot to display a group of smaller pieces like we did here. Tall, skinny walls are usually found in between windows, in entranceways like mine or on columns and are often left naked, but in this case, my entry way needed a little bit of decor to brighten it for that statement when family and friends visit. Plus, I wanted to add some positive words for my kids to see.

What you’ll need:
• Hang-O-Matic
• Hammer, drill or Monkey Hooks

First, plan out the order in which you want to display your frames. Having someone hold the pieces for you while you step back to assess the look helps. Also, taking a picture of each arrangement will help you make a decision. You can also display them on the floor side by side and rearrange per your liking.


First use the Hang-O-Matic to measure the height of the wall. Use the sliding marker to mark the center of the wall which will be your starting point.  Make sure to measure the width of the wall to find a center. Once you found the center, go ahead and put a screw or nail and hang your picture.

The middle picture will now guide you to hang the bottom and the top picture.  Use the Hang-O-Matic tape measure and measure out a few inches up and down to mark the next spot for the next two pictures.

Quick tip:  Hang art vertically to give the illusion of a higher ceiling.
