Yay, your artwork has arrived! You must be excited and keen to get it up on the wall. We know, we'd feel the same way! 

So, it's time to finally hang your new multi-panel canvas, and we've got this easy step-by-step guide to help you get the job expertly done!

As you probably noticed, our artwork is ready-to-hang and comes with a pre-installed sawtooth hanger. That's because we want to make sure that decorating your wall is super fast and easy!

So roll up your sleeves and let's get started!

What You'll Need

* Nails/screws (one for each panel)

* Pencil

* Hammer/drill

* Spirit level ruler

* Toothpaste

Toothpaste?! Yup, you read it right! You'll figure out why you need it soon enough!

Tools for hanging multi panel canvas wall art

Follow These Steps

Follow these simple steps carefully, and you'll have your beautiful artwork up on your wall in just a few minutes!

Step 1: Align

Always start with the middle panel (usually the largest one). Use it as a main focal point to align the other panels.

Step 2: Spread Toothpaste

Spread a small dot of toothpaste on the embossed circle of the sawtooth hanger.

Step 3: Mark the Wall

Press the frame to the wall, the toothpaste will then stick to the wall.

Step 4: Drive the Nail

Place the nail where the toothpaste is, and hit it into the wall using a hammer.

Step 5: Leave Enough Space Between the Panels

You're probably wondering how far apart you should hang the panels of your canvas!

* Width: for all layouts, we recommend leaving 1" space between each panel when hung, for the best airy but tied-together look! If the gap is too big or too small, you'd lose the effect of the split canvas. 

* Height: the height of the rest of the panels depends on the layout you selected. Some layouts are symmetrical, and some layouts resemble a wave and feature different heights. In general, be consistent! For example, if you hung the left panel 3" lower than the middle panel, be sure to hang the right panel in the same proportion. Use your ruler and pencil to measure the right height!

    Step 6: Repeat

    Repeat for the rest of the panels on alternate sequence (middle, left, right, left, right). Use your spirit level to ensure your panels are aligned. 

    Important tip:

    Keep the distance between all panels the same, to achieve a cohesive look.

    The End Result

    Multi-panel wall art creates a dramatic effect and adds character to your walls. You should notice the change the artwork does to your place right away!
    The end result should look cohesive, artistic and flowing. It is the best way to make the most of a blank wall!
