How to Use a Fork to Hang a Picture

Here is a great tip for hanging pictures. If you have ever struggled, trying to get a picture hung on a nail, this will be very helpful. Sometimes on a picture, or any wall hanging for that matter, there is not enough room to get your hand behind to guide the string or wire onto the nail. you hang it, only to realize later when it crashes to the floor that it was not on the wire at all, but on the edge of the frame. Save yourself the frustration that a series of failed attempts can cause. Slip a regular kitchen fork over the nail on the wall. Hook the string or wire on the top of the fork and let it slide down. Pull the fork out and you are done.
