Hanging prints at home with Command™ Picture Hanging Strips

Brought to you by Command™ Picture Hanging Strips.

I move prints around in my home all the time. Of course, every time I do this I end up with holes on my walls (which annoys my husband to no end). I’ve been wanting to put these huge 60 x 90cm prints up for a while, but I haven’t been able to decide on where they would look best.

So instead of whacking a few more holes on the walls, I was glad when Command™ Picture Hanging Strips came to my rescue! I could put the prints up, take some photos and then decide on which spot works better. Actually, YOU can help me!

I bought the prints online (I wrote about them here), got them printed at Officeworks and I purchased the large frames for $15 from Kmart.

I haven’t used the Command™ Picture Hanging Strips before, but was eager to give them a go. They come in so many different sizes to suit your wall hanging. I made sure I picked the right strip for the size of the frame. There is a handy guide on the back. So for me, I need the strips to hold 7.2kg as the instructions say they will hold a 60 x 90cm frame.

I positioned the strips as per the instructions – 4 x sets of strips on each frame.

They were so easy to put on the wall. Remove the little plastic sticker back and then push the frame on… If they are a little crooked you can easily re-position. You can watch a good video here too.

All you have to do is gently pull the frame upwards from the bottom and you’ll hear a velcro sound.

  • You then need to press firmly for 30 seconds before removing – left behind will be 4 strips and the matching ones will be on the frame.
  • Ideally remove the picture for 1 hour before re-hanging for maximum strength.

The strips come in both black and white – I used the black ones here as they were easier for me to photograph.


I had a go at removing them altogether and it’s easier than ever. Just gently pull the flap directly down and it’ll be off in a matter of seconds.

But then I wasn’t sure if I really liked them in this spot, so I decided to add another set of strips and place the frame on an opposite wall to see what they would look like…

    Left looks all put together

    Left for me! I like how the print is slightly obscured by the light – adds an element of interest and makes it appear less ‘staged’.

    I’d say left, but that’s the beauty of 3m hooks, left for 6 months then right for the next 6!

    I prefer the right image – it is less busy and the prints draw your eye down to the wall to really take in the images, whereas I feel they get a little lost is the left image as there is so much more to take in with the lamp, the plants and the marquee ampersand.

  • Brooke

    I love them in the left position. Gorgeous prints!

  • Ashlea @ Glamour Coastal Living

    I like the left – suits the texture and greenery you have there. Your fiddle leaf id looking INCREDIBLE! It must be loving this weather. Hope you are feeling better xx

    I’d pick the left. One thing to remember is to make sure the command strips aren’t in a place that gets hot and cold all the time as this can make the print fall off the wall. I know this from experience when my gallery wall experienced a few problems.

  • Anne

    the left one – it looks fabulous!

  • Cindy

    While the left caught my eye initially, i think the prints are great and should be the main focus so let’s go with the right.

  • Andrei

    I love it on the right- I feel when you walk towards it, you’d be walking on a a beach towards the lighthouse!

  • Vish

    I love the one on left. The size fits the wall perfectly. The other one looks a bit small for the larger wall. Never used Command before, very keen to try this please 🙂
