The photo rope - the decorative magnetic photo line
You can use a magnetic photo rope to hang up your favourite photos, postcards, birth announcements, etc. All our photo ropes (except for FL-09) come with strong neodymium magnets, some even with fridge magnets in animal or heart motifs. If this is not fancy enough for you: Most of our colourful fridge magnets can be used on photo ropes.
Most photo ropes include a steel weight and are hung up vertically. Articles FL-04, FL-05 and FL-06, however, have loops and are usually hung up horizontally between two nails. But you can come up with other ways to hang them up, e.g. in a Z shape.
The magnetic photo ropes are attached to the wall using nails and the loops at the ends. Mount the photo ropes on curtain rods or empty walls and ceilings in your hallway, sitting room or bedroom. To hang the photo rope without drilling any holes, metal surfaces such as door frames, bannisters, columns or other ferromagnetic surfaces offer an optimal adhesion surface for magnetic hooks made of neodymium.
Design ideas with photo ropes
A photo rope that hangs by itself on the wall can look a little lost. The following design ideas will help you showcase your magnetic photo rope to perfection:
Hang three to four magnetic ropes for photos next to each other. This distributes the pictures better. The magnetic ropes can be mounted vertically or horizontally.
Hide the nails under cut out wooden discs to make it look as if the magnetic rope is wedged between the wall and the wood.
Find and hang the magnetic photo on a piece of driftwood. To keep the magnetic ropes from moving, attach a second piece of driftwood at the bottom of the photo rope to act as additional weight.
Wrap a thin clothes hanger in yarn or embellish it with rhinestones, for example. Then attach your magnetic ropes for photos to the hanger. A true eye-catcher!
Photo ropes as gift ideas
Photos remind us of garden parties, travels, encounters, or simply wonderful days gone by. Printed or as Polaroid pictures, they are also great as home décor. That makes photo ropes the perfect small gift for a birthday party, Secret Santa, Easter, Christmas or simply as a little something to give to someone. The Photo rope 'Sweetheart' with eight heart-shaped magnets is ideal for Valentine’s Day. The number of mementoes that can be attached to these magnetic photo ropes depends on the length of the steel rope.
