Creatively designed record album covers can be hung in a variety of ways to decorate a wall. Covers can be arranged thematically by type of music, by band name, in artistic arrangements of similarly designed or coloured covers, in the order you bought the records, or in any pattern or design that fits the room. You can find record albums at garage and yard sales, sales held by public libraries and radio stations, and online through various sites catering to record collectors.

  1. 1

    Insert the album covers you want to display into the record album frames. Be careful not to bend the album cover as you slide it into the frame.

  2. 2

    Decide where you want to hang the record albums. If you are creating a pattern or mosaic, measure the total space you want to fill and then divide it by the size of the album frames to know how many frames you can hang in the space. Mark the centre of each frame on the wall with a pencil; this is where you will put the nails for hanging the frames.

  3. 3

    Hammer in one nail for each frame you will hang on the spots marked in the previous step. Hang the frames on the nails and place the spirit level across the tops of the frames to make sure they are level. When the little bubble in the level is in the centre of its tube, you know the frames are level and square.
