What can I use to hang a wreath on a stone fireplace?
I always prefer to drill into mortar over stone or tile as it is easier to patch up when you decide you don’t want a hole there anymore. Use a 1/4″ masonry bit in an electric drill and insert a small plastic “molly” into the hole. Use a screw in the molly to hold your wreath.
How do you screw into stone?
Insert the masonry screw into the pilot hole. Use a screwdriver to turn the masonry screw clockwise. Continue turning the screw until it is flush against the stone or the surface of whatever you’re attaching to the stone, such as a window shutter, lumber or ornamental fixture.
Is it better to drill into the brick or the mortar?
Brick is the best choice if it’s in good condition. Brick is a lot stronger than mortar and can hold heavy objects such as televisions. Mortar should only be drilled if the brick is too fragile and therefore susceptible to cracking. Unfortunately, mortar will only ever hold lightweight items securely.
Can I drill into stone wall?
Though stone is trickier to drill than wood, the process is very similar. Being certain to wear safety goggles, drill the hole in short bursts. If you hit a particularly hard section of stone, don’t try to power through it with the drill. Instead, insert the masonry nail and drive it through, using your hammer.
Is it safe to hang an oil painting over a fireplace?
Hanging Your Painting in Hot or Smoky Areas There is no worst place than hanging your painting above a mantel, near radiators and heaters, or in bathrooms and kitchens. Even specially made frames can’t guarantee that the heat from a fireplace, or other heat sources, won’t affect the painting.
What can I use to hang a wreath on brick?
If your wreath doesn’t come with a hook or any hardware, don’t sweat it. It’s an easy fix with a zip tie. We used a white zip tie and trimmed it to the right length to form a makeshift hook to hang the wreath. Choose a black zip tie if it blends in better with your wreath (we made do with white).
How do you stick Command hooks to Brick?
If you need to hang Command strips on brick for any reason, I’ve found that a dab of hot glue works wonders!:-) And finally, if you have freshly painted walls, you should wait at least 7 days before hanging Command strips.

Do Command strips take off paint?
I agree with Flipturn, the Command Strip has a stronger bond to the paint than the paint to the surface it is on. That being said, I lost a gorgeous plate because of this. I went to take off the second set of Command Strips with the next plate, and it pulled the paint off the wall too, only that plate was safe.
