How do you hang a picture on glass?

Last Updated: 8th February, 2020

Drill through the glass on the mark using a glass drill bit. Use a drill set on the low setting to slowly carve out the glass until you hit the wall behind the glass. If your drill has only one setting, place the drill against the glass and use light pressure to carve away the glass until you reach the wall.

Drilling a hole in a pane of glass or a mirror is simple. The key is to use a carbide bit made especially for glass and tile (see photos).

Can you Mod Podge pictures to glass?

You can Mod Podge a photo directly to glass, but can you photo transfer to glass? The answer is no – not directly. You'll need to use the “decal method.” In the decal method, you're going to print out photos on printer paper (not photo paper) and then paint them with Mod Podge photo transfer medium.

Do Command Strips work on textured walls?

Command strips can only be applied to smooth surfaces. Avoid adhering them to brick walls, textured wallpaper, concrete or timber. Strips work best on clean, smooth surfaces, so wipe the wall with isopropyl rubbing alcohol (methylated spirits) first. This will ensure your strip bonds properly with the wall.

How heavy can you hang on drywall?

This can be 5 to 10 pounds, but keep in mind that the drywall is an extremely brittle material and, it is not strong enough to hold the weight for a longer period of time. If you don't have any anchors to use or other hardware to use, then you'll want to make sure you find a stud to drill your screws into.

Joice Franse


How much weight can a wall anchor hold?

Toggles, anchors or molly bolts are surprisingly strong. A 1/8 toggle can hold 30 pounds on 1/2-inch drywall and a 3/8-inch toggle can handle a hefty 50 pounds or more safely. When applying any kind of drywall anchor, you should understand how they work and which screw anchor may work best to put into a hollow wall.
