How to use drywall anchors to hang garlands and other holiday decorations

My brother and his wife came up with this idea for hanging heavy garlands and other decorations in drywall.  I really like this idea because when you’re not using it to hang stuff you can just unscrew the hook and the anchor is almost invisible.

Step 1.

Purchase a pack of drywall anchors and hooks.

Step 2.

Make a hole in the wall using a punch or a drill.


Step 3.

Push anchor into hole and then use a screwdriver to screw it in flush to the wall as shown.


Step 4.

Paint the anchor to match your wall or ceiling. The hook will screw into the anchor as shown in the picture.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
