For such a seemingly simple task, hanging anything on your walls can be a frustrating and difficult experience-especially if you're alone. There are a number of steps you need to follow before you can be completely satisfied with the finished product. You need to hammer the nail in the perfect spot-but not too far into the wall!-and attempt to successfully hook your frame onto the nail. And then worry for way too long whether your new decor is lopsided. Which, it probably is.

Luckily, we've found a mind-blowing secret hack making its rounds on Twitter, changing the DIY game as we know it. And the only thing you'll need to hang your photos like a boss is something you already own: a fork.

Here's how to do it: First, you need to hammer the nail in to its desired spot on the wall. Then, you just need to slide your trusty fork upside down onto the nail. Make sure the prongs are hugging the nail closely, so it doesn't move. For the next step, just slide your photo onto the nail, guided by the fork-and voilà. A perfectly hung frame in a matter of seconds.
