Need Help hanging gog picture frame..

culateru2March 29, 2011

I am making a gog mosaic from a glass picture frame. I am gluing/silicone the glass to the frame and than mosaicing. But I don't know the best way to add a chain or hanging some other way. The frame is wood but it is not the thick. Does anyone have any suggestions?

What size frame are we taliking about, a picture hanging set of hangers(kinda a triangle) comes with small screws?
Will this be inside or outside?

It is around 16 x 20 inches, hanging inside. It is just the gog (I removed the backing). The frame is kinda narrow so I wasnt sure if the picture hanger things will work, although it isn't that heavy. Also is there any other ideas if I want to hang with chains?
Thanks again for any help

Go to an auto glass or any kind of place that sells mirrors. They have heavy-duty hangers. That's where I buy all my hangers. The long strap kind has two and sometimes three holes for screws. They also have smaller half-circle hangers w/two screw holes. Sometimes I find those at Walmart. You can use an "S" hook w/which to attach your chains. I like things hung w/chains too.

Do you have any recommendations for a chain store/web site? I will take a look at a mirror store too..

Check Lowes or your local hardware store or Google for websites selling decorative chains.
