How do you hang an unframed canvas painting?
Canvases can be secured on the wall without a frame, too, but only if they’re not too large or unweildy—and they’ll look better if the sides of the canvas are painted rather than blank; simply prop the open section inside the wood frame onto two sizeable nails (which will keep the piece more level than using one).
Is it weird to hang your own art?
It really isn’t. Artists generally pursue the forms of art that appeals to them, so it would stand to reason that they would like having their own work hanging on the walls.
Is it cheaper to make your own picture frames?

Wider and more elaborate frames will cost more. Polystyrene frames (imitation wood frames made of plastic) will cost less.
