thanks, Sbrinz. i was looking around brunaupark migros and found loads of different wires but they all seemed too thick. they were on rolls that you cut a section off. does picture hanging wire come in packs with the wall hooks and eyes? is it in special 'picture hanging wire' packaging? cheers

You may want to look at 3M command hanging strips. I used it to hang over a dozen frames, and they hold quite well. Bonus is that it leaves no nail marks, and can be ripped out without leaving any trace.

check out command.com

Landi, I think IKEA also sells small packages of hanging wire (that don't require a frame purchase). Have you checked the houseware section of Migros - where they have misc electrical stuff, gardening odds/ends etc?

There are several different wires for sale. Why not buy a small amount of green gardening steel wire and a packet of suitable screws?
