    Most difficult part will be aligning them I think. There are nine separate panels to go on three separate sections of the wall so unless they're straight it's going to stick out like the proverbial canines testicles.

    If you’ve got a fitter’s eye you’ll be the only person who notices a few mm out here and there.
    Otherwise it’s the 20-feet rule ie. if it looks okay from 20 feet away it’s okay.

    String and nails, measuring tape and spirit level, on the wall before they're put up, then slot them into place.

    No nails glue and a spirit level is all you need.

    I find a few beers before any diy project helps with creativity.

    Paint them all the colours of the rainbow will get you special brownie points in here.

    String lines solve many problems.
    Ping the string to temporarily mark the wall with chalk.

    I use a Laser level. Clean, easy and accurate.

    If you have Somchai come, he will use the long surgical tube with water in it.

    Nails screws? bollocks...........Mark round them cut the wall plaster away back to the cinder block then apply a thin coat of render.push the frame back till it displaces the render slightly.......render round the edges and when it dries run some silicon round the edge and they will be there till the cows come home.

    Actually avoid no more nails like your mother in laws boyfriend, as they say. The fuking stuff is a nightmare, if you ever want to take them down for whatever reason you'll take the facing off the brickwork - go with jappers suggestion.

    Ahh, just went with a single wall plug/anchor in the end. First one broke because I tried some liquid nails stuff to hold it at the bottom and put too much pressure on it.

    Was a bit of pissing around because none of the wire they'd set into the moulds was centered so I had to measure around it all to get them to hang straight. Worked for the most part.

    Place a screw in the wall sticking out 1/2 inch or as much as required
    hang ornament as indicated in picture by red dot.like a picture.
    Any Tips On Hanging These?-wall-deco-png
    before hanging put liquid nails ,or similar glue on the back of ornament
    The glue will secure them to the wall , the screw will prevent them from falling down.
    No need to drill ornament, screw dont need to be big, the force on it is a shear force.
