How to Hang a Wall Clock without Nails
When we tell you to get creative, we definitely don’t mean getting creative with your paintbrushes or letting it loose with sonnets and verses. We mean getting creative with usable tools that can function as a substitute for nails.

Let this set about.
Use Adhesive Strips
You can find them in many hardware and craft stores. These strips are mainly made for hanging pictures on the wall. But this would just work fine with your wall clock too.
Clean the back part where you’re willing to stick the strips. We recommend you to use more strips if your clock in on the heavier side.
Placing (NOT Hanging) on a Shelf
A shelf is an ideal place to place your clock where everyone will see it. Just because it’s named as wall clock, doesn’t necessarily mean it has to hang on a wall.
There are these wall clocks that even have a base to be placed on a flat surface. Modern as well as antique styles, you’ll find them in both designs.
Hang It from the Ceiling
There are special ceiling-mounted clocks these days. Even if your one doesn’t belong to that category, you can use the support beam of the ceiling to hang it from.
Usually, you’ll have to install extending pole(s) to function this.
Old Enough for Crown Mouldings?
Now, don’t get disappointed with the old house if you’re familiar with this. It’s a really cool option I’m telling you.
Mark off the place where you want the clock to hang. Then move on to mark the molding in the center above the clock. Place a hook in the marked spot, attach a cord to the back of the clock, align properly and finally hang the cord from the hook. Complicated but classic.

Super hooks are some nifty hardware accessories. You’ll find them in online stores. If you’re lucky enough, you might find them in your nearby hardware shops as well.
Get them and soon you’ll know how to use those to hang a clock.
