Amborela Wall Art Hanging Hardware

When your Amborela artwork arrives, it will come with an installed sawtooth hanger, paper dustcover, and bumpers on each bottom corner.

You will need nails, hammer, and level. You may want additional tools shown below to make hanging your artwork easier or more secure.

How to Hang your Amborela Wall Art Securely

Step 1: Install the nail at a 45 degree angle into the wall where you have marked. You can use a small picture hanger to help guide the nail at the proper angle.

Step 2: Hang the canvas and set a level on top edge to straighten.

Step 3: Gently press bottom corners to help bumpers keep canvas straight.

Pro tip:  In high traffic areas you may find yourself repeatedly straightening your artwork, even with bumpers. Replace bumpers with 3M picture hanging strips and your artwork will stay straight.

Safety Reminders

These precautions apply to Amborela art because it is lightweight (approximately 1-3 lbs/canvas). Additional and different safety precautions apply to art purchased elsewhere that might be heavier, use different hanging hardware, or contain glass.

  • Don’t hang artwork within reach of a child
  • If you hang artwork above a bed, crib, changing table, or sofa, it is essential to use your good judgement on safety. A wallpaper focal wall may be a better alternative in your situation.
  • Always install your nail at a 45 degree angled when installing in drywall. You can replace bumpers with 3M picture hanging strips as an added precaution.
  • Do not tamper with the sawtooth hanger. Prying it outwards to make hooking it onto the nail easier will make it less secure on the wall.
  • Do not replace the sawtooth hanger on Amborela art with a 3M picture hanging strip. The hangers are strong, but the paper dustcover will pull away from the back of the canvas causing the artwork to fall.

The “Hang & Level” tool simplifies the placement of artwork. If you don’t have the patience for measuring, you will love this tool. This stress-free way of hanging artwork is so simple, you will use this tool for all your wall art, not just your 3 piece wall art and gallery wall arrangements.

Start by hanging the central piece to your triptych or gallery wall and move on to the outer pieces.

I am the artist creating the nature inspired paintings and surface patterns at Amborela. When I'm not in my studio, I am working in my garden with the flowers that inspire my artwork. I ooh and aah at beautiful colors and interesting textures.
