Create a Template for Hanging
Use tape measure to determine height and width of wall area where map will hang. Jot dimensions down on notepad using pencil. Roll out contractor paper on a long, flat surface. Referring to notepad, mark wall dimensions on contractor paper with marker and level. Arrange frames on contractor paper leaving the same amount of distance between each. Trace frame outlines onto paper with marker, number each frame with a piece of painter's tape and note corresponding numbers on the template.
Use Template to Mark Wall
Place template on wall, temporarily securing it with painter's tape. Use tape measure to determine exact placement of each frame's hanger. Once determined, mark with pencil, then create hole by tapping a nail lightly through paper with hammer.
Once all picture hanger holes have been created, remove template. Fully hammer nails into the wall; hang frames in order to create a complete map. Finally, remove painter's tape numbers from frames.
