Hanging Decorative Keys

About a month ago, I purchased these keys for $1 each at Michaels'.

At the time, I thought I would probably frame them & hang them on our new gallery wall, but when I got the layout the way I wanted, I decided not to use them in frames.

I knew I didn’t want to hang them with ribbon, & I didn’t want to have to put two nails in the wall to hold them up.  First I experimented with sticky tack, but they kept falling off the wall after a couple of hours.

Finally, I decided to hammer nails into the wall where I wanted them.  Then, I wiggled the nail out of the wall & glued the nail head to the back of the key, like so:

I kept some sticky tack on the keys & then carefully pushed the nail back into the hole.
So far, it has worked perfectly at holding up the key without the nail being visible!

Seems like the perfect solution to my problem!

  1. That was a great idea! Okay, so you probably don't care but I was trying to hang a mirror in my bathroom last night and my nails are pretty darn even but every time I hang the mirror it's mega crooked. Gr!
