i have a surprise for my sister as a piece of 1/4 inch plywood that is 5 ft x 10 inches. I have no idea now how to hang I on the wall. It isn’t completely flat anymore either. I assume with the paint and humidity lately it has started to bow a bit. Please help!!!

      Thank you for your help. Would the screws used for this not pop through the plywood? As the plywood is so thin I am worried about screws popping through it when adding screws to try to hang my project. Sort of an after thought when I chose to use the plywood for this project.

      Please advise.

    Have you considered making a supportive frame from stronger lumber and nail it to the back of your plywood, or even nailing strips of wood across the length since that is where it is bowing.
    Home Depot has 6' strips x 3.5"x 1/2", I bought 1 yesterday for $3.47, using it to replace a fence slat. They will gladly cut it down to the length you need. A couple of them should do the trick.
    Best to you and your sister

    sorry that it's not flat but might try a french cleat due to size and weight (google it)

    No the stews go into the wall n the plastic clip part holds the art.
