HOW TO EASILY HANG A GALLERY OF DECORATIVE WALL BASKETS SO THAT THEY SIT FLUSH WITHOUT MAKING ANY HOLES IN THE WALL!
You guys, I finally made some serious progress on my daughter’s bedroom makeover. I still have a few small things to do, but I today I wanted to show you how I hung a gallery of wall baskets above the bed.
I’ve actually had these wall baskets since February but I couldn’t hang them until I bought a headboard. I finally got one and I was so excited to finally see these on the wall!
I found a really simple process that makes this so easy. You won’t even have to make a single nail hole in the wall with this method.
First, I traced each of the wall baskets out on paper to make a template. I used computer paper because it was all I had on hand. You could also use leftover wrapping paper, newspaper or anything else you have handy.
After I had each of them traced and cut, I started trying different arrangements on the wall. I find this is easier than hanging the wall baskets and repeatedly moving those.
When I found a layout I liked, I removed the templates one by one and replaced with the baskets. These baskets don’t have any hangers on the back, so to hang them on the wall I used Instant Tacky.
This is an adhesive, removable putty and may also be called Fun Tac. The Instant Tacky is the perfect solution for this for a few reasons. One, it works so that the baskets can all sit completely flush on the wall.
Two, it’s completely removable and repositionable without leaving any marks whatsoever. And, three, you can use it to layer the baskets on top of one another for a layered look.
Even after doing it this way, I did still make a few adjustments after they were hung.
I bought my baskets online from this site but I found the same ones for less here* after I bought mine. You could collect baskets on your own but I preferred buying a set to trying to piece it together myself. It has a more cohesive look to it.
Here are a few sets I found while browsing online:
