How to Hang Canvas Prints
- Canvas Prints
- Tape Measure
Step 1: Measure your space.
For my project, I wanted to create a statement piece over our guest bedroom queen sized bed. We measured the width of the headboard and then the height we had available.
Step 2: Measure your canvas prints.
After we knew our available space, we measured each canvas individually. You’ll need to know both the overall size of the canvas as well as the measurement to inside the frame if hanging directly from the frame or to your hanging kit, depending on what you will be using to mount the pictures to the wall.
Step 3: Layout your canvas prints to create a layout you love.
You may have already configured your prints before you purchased them and have a plan in mind. If not, make sure you do this now! Lay them out together on the floor or on top of a bed or table to plan the arrangement.
I ordered prints that fit each other canvas’ measurements so they would fit just perfectly together. I started with a tall 24″x30″ statement picture. Since it was 24″ wide, I wanted my other pictures to also be 24″ wide to feel very cohesive.
I then ordered one landscape print that was 12″x24″. And sized my last two canvases to be 12″ wide to fit nicely over my landscape canvas and 16″ tall to fill the rest of the 30″ vertical space nicely.
Step 4: Measure twice, hang once.
When you have all of your measurements for your wall space, canvas size, and mounting spots, you can then start to measure and mark up your wall.
You’ll want to measure over and down and a t-square can be very helpful in doing both of those measurements in one step! Just line the t-square against the ceiling or your headboard or any other anchor point. You can then measure over the distance from the edge you need to go and down along the edge of the t-square to make your mark. Just use a pencil to mark your point.
You will also use your level during this step to double check your marks are level if making more than one hole to mount your Canvas prints.
It’s always best to double check your measurements. One way to do this is to hold up your canvas print to your mark and make sure it looks correct visually. This is a great way to double check spacing and make sure you’re not too high, low, or to close to already mounted canvas prints.
Step 5: Continue hanging your canvas prints.
If you are hanging more than one canvas prints in the same area, you’ll need to be careful with your measurements and calculations to have the prints spaced just right.
After you’ve made a simple pencil mark, holding up the canvas to double check can be extra helpful to make sure you are not overlapping or too close to your other canvas prints.
When you’re finished, just step back and admire your work!
