Create a Level Line as a Guide

Find the place on your wall where you want the bottom of your letters to sit. Place your level against the wall at this spot and run your pencil along the top of the level to create a guide line.

If you’re hanging up several letters, grab a straight edge (like a yard stick) and place it on the guide line you just created. Use your pencil to extend your guide line.

Use your cloth to remove any dust from both the letters and the wall. 

Attach the Tape to the Back of the Letters

Cut out several appropriately sized pieces of tape and attach them to the backs of your letters. Remember, small letters will only need a few pieces while big letters will need several.

Don’t forget to attach pieces of tape to both the top and bottom of each letter to ensure a secure fit!


Mount the Letters on the Wall

Hold the bottom edge of each letter against the guide line to ensure that it’s level. Next, push the letter against the wall. Make sure to press firmly for a few seconds to ensure that the letter is secure.

All Done!

You did it! Now it’s time to step back and admire your new home decor.
