draw an imaginary vertical line in the centerand mirror the arrangement on each side of the line. a salon style arrangement is anotherway to decorate your walls. start by positioning the most prominent piece at eye level in thecenter and work outward. a mix of dimensional pieces such as plates and frames in differentshapes and colors keep the arrangement lively and interesting. once you've planned yourarrangement, cut out shapes of craft paper equal to the size of the items you want tohang, then use painter's tape to hang each paper shape on the wall in the same arrangementyou created on the floor. the tape won't damage the wall and lets you double check your designbefore you put nails on the wall. mark each paper template at the place where your nailwill be needed to hang the corresponding item.
pound nails into the wall through the papertemplates at the marked spot, hang your artwork and enjoy.
