One question I’m asked regularly is HOW DO YOU HANG THAT PLATE ON YOUR WALL. I DON’T SEE ANY PLATE HANGER WIRES. That’s because I don’t use plate hangers and haven’t for years! There is a much easier way to hang dishes, lids, or any other pottery-type-thing on walls that is safe and cannot be seen.
Look no wires!
I’m not using magic either! But I do have two little secrets…
EASY WAY TO HANG ALMOST ANYTHING WITHOUT WIRES
These little school bus yellow thingies are called Disc Adhesive Plate Hangers. And they can hang almost any dish, plate, lid, etc!
Follow the directions included with the Discs to hang plates (or whatever) Here’s how they work…and yes, it’s that easy!
Just make sure you follow the directions! There are plates hanging on my walls for years and years with Disc plate hangers.
You can see them HERE.
DIY PLATE HANGERS
This is a so easy, little DIY you can do yourself to make plate hangers!
You will need two things to hang plates on a wall without wires…
- CLEAN GRIP by Gorilla Glue
- pop-top of a can or other metal rings
Here are tips that will help you hang a plate small mirror or lids like I did…
- find the center of the item to hang on the wall
- place your pop-tab so it will not show over the edge of the plate
- follow the directions on the glue packaging
- hang when the glue is cured
Your beautiful home does not need wires showing on the things you hang on your walls!
Do you have another idea for hanging plates on the wall?
