Hanging art of the wall can leave a trail of "mistake holes" across your drywall. However there is a very easy hack you can employ next time you want to hang something from the wall and all you need is a tube of toothpaste.  Put a dab of toothpaste on the back of the frame where the nail is supposed to meet the hanging hardware. Then, using the toothpaste as a stamp, lightly place the frame on the spot where you want it to be. This should leave a little toothpaste mark on the wall. Hammer the nail into the middle of the toothpaste spot and wipe away the excess. Of course, you don’t have to use toothpaste—really any creamy product would work. Just make sure that it will come off your wall easily without leaving a stain (or bad smell) behind.
