Hanging plates - 3 methods

Do you have a nice plate that you would like to hang on the wall? You do not need to damage the plate. Whereas in the past wall plates were either produced directly with a hole, or had a kind of nose in porcelain, today there are practical methods for hanging each plate afterwards. We show you three methods here.

Solution 1 - Buy wall plate holder

The simplest solution is a purchased wall plate holder. These practical small wire springs are available in most hardware stores and on the Internet in different sizes. You should therefore measure the plate beforehand to ensure that the plate holder will fit later.

  • 13 to 20 centimeters in diameter
  • 20 to 25 centimeters in diameter
  • 25 to 35 centimeters in diameter
  • 35 to 50 centimeters in diameter

Solution 2 - Turn plate holder

Due to the springs and the whole wire plant, the purchased wall plate holder is always a bit ahead. But it is also very fitting, then no springs are needed. You can use sturdy wire or sturdy string, which you can buy in a craft shop or at a hardware store, to make a precisely fitting plate holder. This is attached with a hot glue gun on the back of the plate and covered with tissue adhesive tape. For particularly heavy plates, this variant is not very suitable.

Solution 3 - Mirror and picture holder

Small adhesive pads with a triangular hanger are glued to the back of the plate in this variant. These adhesive pads are available especially for plates of different weights. Here it does not depend on the size of the plate, but only on the weight. Always take the next larger weight class for these adhesive pads.

First, the plate on the back but absolutely fat-free and clean. As a precaution, rub a little vinegar over the glued area of ​​the plate before gluing.

Tips & Tricks

With the plate holders for the larger plates, you should also take into account the weight of the plate. If this is too heavy, the springs that are in the purchased plate holder will ring slightly and the plate will eventually fall off. The other two variants are not safe enough to hold a precious heavy plate. For these cases, you should rather use a stand that you place in the showcase or on a dresser.
