Hello friends! I need to fix this word “LOVE” along the wall. I do not know what kind of accessory I have to use the word. Someone give me some advice? I wanted to know your opinion!
Thank you and good Sunday!

Depeds on how heavy? Permanence? Simplist way… drill two holes in back of piece. If it’s going on dry wall and not a heavy piece ues a couple finishing nails. Easy repair when taking it down, most of the small pictures in my office are hung this way.

If into plaster you can use screw anchors.

I’ve had great luck on light pieces with the removable double sided tape. It’s often used for hanging coat hooks, etc and it holds great and then easily removed by pulling a little tab and stretching the adhesive.

3M Command Adhesive is what I use, it doesn’t pull off paint or finish.

My wife is a big fan of it. The hangers are great. Dry surfaces a must. She hung an outlet in our barthroom with it . Keeps falling off the tile. But it holds coats, and clothes well.

My pleasure. another thought isdrill fine holes into the lath and use small screws. If dry surface the 3m tape might be simplest?

I also liked a lot of the solution of 3M double sided adhesive tape!
Thanks Biff!
I’ll think of your two councils.
Thank you!

If you decide to use tape, use the double sided mounting tape. That’s also called “double-sided foam” tape. It’s used by photographers and artists when mounting their art pieces and they hold quite well. The regular or ordinary double-sided does not cling too well.

I really like the 3M adhesive tape EMVarona!!
Thanks for your comment my friend. Once I fixed 3M double sided adhesive tape in a frame on the wall in my mother’s house and the frame was there for four years, until she moved away from home and I had to pull the frame too hard! Thank 3M
Greetings my friend!

2 holes in the back of the word, and 2 nails on the wall.

I would rather put my confidence in gravity holding it (nails) over glue for long term (also less messy to remove/relocate).

I make small metal straps to screw to the backside of the word and hang this on a nail in the wall. I make the straps out of scrap metal…... like old band saw blades.

my router bit set came with a keyhole bit…you could try one of those with a screw in the wall. I’d think if you just drilled a regular hole and hung it on nails if someone bumped it it’d fall over
