Quick Tip #6 – Saw-tooth Hangers

It ‘s been a while since I’ve posted a quick tip, so here you go.

I always have the hardest time hammering the little nail through the saw-tooth hanger and into the frame. 
Sometimes I hit my thumb and want to say words my kids shouldn’t hear.
So I came up with the perfect idea. I hold the little nail with tweezers and hammer away.
It works perfectly, my thumb stays out of the way, and my kids are spared bad language. 

I’ll show you the rest of this project in a few days. I love it!

    I like to use my little needle nose pliers. The inside of the pliers are textured so the nail doesn’t slip. They work great!
