As a mom of two daughters, I can tell you that I’ve seen my share of posters over the years. Movie posters, music posters, horse posters, cat posters and Barbie posters. Each time a new poster emerged, I’d cringe, worrying about my walls while the kids worried about damaging their precious posters. So how do you hang posters (or anything light for that matter) without damaging your walls – or your posters?
Hanging light things shouldn’t be a problem, right? Well, if you’ve hung posters you know it’s a common problem. For instance, I just bought this pretty fruit trio to inject a bit of summer fun into my space. When it was time to hang it, I didn’t want to use thumb tacks because I would end up with holes in my posters and walls. Rolled up tape or sticky tack were also out of the question because of the nasty residue they leave behind.
It was important for me to keep my fruit art in pristine condition because I plan to frame and hang the three images when I find the right sized frames. With that said, I used magnets to hang my posters – DécoMagnets. They’re the little black top hats seen in this picture:
DécoMagnets come with a round silver disc and a magnet (available in black or white). Also included is a transparent pick used to perfectly remove the discs from the walls.
As you’ll see in this short video, it’s very easy to use DécoMagnets – and the best part is that they won’t damage walls or posters. Take a look:
I’m a bit of a perfectionist. Although they’re only posters, I still like to line them up evenly, just like I’m doing here:
And yes, I also change my mind often, so being able to switch up the order of the posters is a definite plus. Once my posters were lined up, all I did is remove the magnets to change up the fruits while the discs stayed in place. There was no reason to move any of the discs because they were already in the perfect spot.
The small round discs gently stick to the wall to hold things up. When you’re ready to remove them, use the clear pick to peel them off. Don’t worry – there won’t be any sticky residue left on your walls or posters, and it won’t remove the paint like other products do. That’s why I love these little magnets so much.
The DécoMagnets come in black or white. I tried both colors with my fruit art and both looked really good. They’re neutral in color, so they’ll look stylish with any décor and art. It’s just a matter of preference.
I bought this fun and playful art to add color to my space – and does it ever! They look even more vibrant on my walls than they did in the store. This is the type of whimsical art that would look great in a kitchen or dining room and they might even be a great incentive to eat more fruit. (By the way, the lemon is my favourite, I just love the bright yellow polka dot combo).
I tell you, I wish I would have had these fun magnets years ago to help my kids hang their Harry Potter, Keith Urban and Lord of the Rings posters. It certainly would have been gentler on my walls and kept my stress level down. Lol!
If you need these magnets in your life, you can buy them directly from our online store.
