1. Use a stud finder and find the support beams (studs) in the wall that you will be using as anchors. Mark the studs with black tape where you are going to place the support anchors.

2. Measure the distance between the hanging points on the artwork. Mark the studs on the wall the corresponding distance.

3. Drill starter holes into each of the studs. Make sure that the starter holes are smaller than the anchors that you will be using.

4. Place the support anchors that will be holding the artwork on the wall into the starter hole with a screw driver. The size, shape and weight of the artwork will determine how big your support anchors will need to be.

5. Place some of your body weight on the support anchors. Make sure that support anchors are properly secure to the wall before placing the artwork on the support anchors.

6. Place the artwork on the support anchors. Make sure that the artwork is level using the bubble level.
