Cool Ways to Hang Up Your Art

Holy Hannah, where do the days go? You’ve seen a little less of me, but I’m still here! It’s just that Mr. Sun came out, so I took the opportunity to get outside and pull the thick, lush weeds that never stop growing !

Anyway, today’s post is all about très cool ways to showcase your artwork. Do you remember the shopping bag art I wrote about here?

Let’s start off with clothes hangers. Not a new idea, but just way too much fun to leave out of the mix.

Like this vintage mult-skirt hanger.

Just think of the collection of things you can display!

Or a grouping of pant hangers like these from Ikea.

Adds interest to a gallery wall, don’t you think?

I love this throw-back to the past that borrows a little Mid-Century Modern flair.

And what could be more perfect than vintage pant hangers to feature each piece?

Vintage wooden skirt hangers would also work, too.

A little more whimsy and added cache for any space.

If hangers aren’t really your thing, you might like to try clipboards instead.

What a great way to add a little punch…

Clipboards are great, because they prop up well, and fit narrower ledges in a space.

And if you have a little Picaso or two…

Why not multi-purpose a curtain rod with ring clips to hang these very special masterpieces?

Or you might like Ikea’s Dignitet System that you see here instead.

What a great way to create an interchangeable feature wall as the new pieces flood in!

Got any old bike rims hanging around? 😉

A quick coat of paint, and you’ve repurposed it into an artistic piece, all stylish and new!

If you’d rather leave the tire intact, you might like this idea instead.

Clip your photos to the spokes with clothes pegs and you’re ready to roll!

If this look is for you…

Why not double the impact, by displaying two!

Do any of these ideas catch your eye? Which one would you like to try?

I’ve been wanting to create a gallery wall for a while now, but just wasn’t sure which way to go. And then I found a few vintage Baribocraft pant hangers along with some other ones, too. And I knew, this was what I wanted to do! Now it’s a matter of sorting out which pieces I want to feature…



It’s about coming home… and home is a special place that tells your story!

  1. I’ve always loved using clothes hangers to hang artwork!!! It makes sense doesn’t it? Funny, I feel like I’ve been out of the loop too, it’s amazing how busy those weeds can keep you!!!

  2. hahaha I am laughing out loud Sheila because I have a thing for clipboards and I loved they way you showed how to hang them and to put on shelf! I think I am going to try that shelf idea actually. Looks really cool. I really like the curtain rod and rings too. Easy and such a great idea!

    1. Hi Cheryl,
      I actually featured this idea, but it wasn’t my project so I don’t know how they hung the bike wheel. I know there are special hangers made for drywall and ceilings that butterfly at the back so the hanger doesn’t pull through once it’s mounted. That’s the type of mounting hook I use for my chandelier, but I have a pretty large clock that I’ve mounted using a drywall screw… I hope this is a somewhat helpful!
