Hang A Frame With A Soda Tab Instead Of A Hook For Easy Leveling (VIDEO)

Now that the holidays are here, we’re sure you’ll be putting out all those embarrassing family photos that you usually stash away, just to please your kin. Or maybe you’re just looking to show off the impressive painting you’ve been working on for months. Either way, you’re going to need a solid hook to make sure everything stays in place. If your frame doesn’t have a rivet, ARecyclingDIY put out an awesome video to show you how to hang a photo with a soda tab.

First, put a hole into the frame using a screw or another sharp object. Then, line up the tab's opening with the hole and hold it in place with a thumb tack or a small screw if it's a heavy frame. Finally, pick the best spot to hang your picture.

We like this idea because not only does it repurpose your old soda cans, but it also comes in handy if you’re without a hook. Plus, it’s super clever -- tell all your friends!
