How To Create A Mock Wall Art Gallery

First of all, why do you want to create a Mock Wall Art Gallery?

There’s one super good reason…

You can see how it’s all going to play out before you start hanging stuff on the wall.

And that’s important if your gonna hang your artwork/photos with nails and stuff like that.

Sometimes you have to do that.

A lotta times, Command strips will be your best friend!

I’ve used them with most of my wall art/hangings in my house.

Sure sometimes a simple nail is just right – or necessary.

But command strips allow you to change things up easily – without damaging walls.

As Long as, you remove them correctly!!

So let’s create that wall

You only need a few simple materials to create a mock wall art gallery.

  • Large Sheets of Paper or Paper Bags
  • *Newspaper might work too, I didn’t use it for fear that the newspaper ink might transfer to the wall. Not sure if that would have happened, but I’d rather be safe then sorry!

  • Painters Tape
  • Yardstick for measuring – it’s easier than a tape measure
  • Pencil

What You’ll Do

  • Cut/create paper to the size of your artwork/photo/decorative knick-knack
  • *I taped pieces of paper together when I needed to

  • Pick a starting point for your first piece.
  • using a tape measure or yardstick, measure from the ceiling to where the top of the artwork will be. Do this in a couple of spots so it’ll hang straight
  • .
    *of course, you could just eye it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hang your paper artwork with painters tape
  • Continue with the rest of your paper artwork – measuring from the ceiling and off of pieces already hung.
  • Now the fun part…

    After itโ€™s created. Live with it for a while.

If you decide you don’t like it. Easy enough to change it up. And those pencil marks?

So Far…but there will be a couple of changes

I did have some hesitations with my design…because it was even and balanced.

I mean where’s the drama in that?

but in the end, I decided to go with it, but as I’ve told you in earlier posts, it’s coming out a tad bit different from the original plan.

I’m fortunate that I could make it all work out. At one point I thought I’d have to rip it all down and start over!

Creating a Mock Wall Art Gallery takes time, but in the end, you’ll be glad you did! It could save you time and frustration down the road.
