D.I.Y.

It can be difficult to hang items with pre-drilled holes like the cups below...I learned a neat little trick that you can use to hang pictures, shelves or almost anything perfectly the first time...

1. place a piece of tape across the back and mark the holes...

2. remove the tape and place it on the wall where you would like to hang your item...You can use a level across the top of the tape to insure it's straight...

3. Drill you screws into the maked holes in the tape...when done remove the tape from the wall...

4. Presto, the object should hang just perfectly form the mounted scews...
