How to a Mount a Trellis

    • 1). Cut PVC pipe with a hacksaw into four 1 1/8-inch sections.

    • 2). Locate the stud in the wall with a stud finder. Once you find the stud, take your trellis, hold it over the stud, and mark both the area on the wall and on the trellis with an 'X'. Mounting your trellis on a stud will further secure it.

    • 3). Take the trellis down from the wall and using your hand drill, pre-drill holes over all the places marked with an 'X'. Back out all the screws from the holes to complete the pre-drill process.

    • 4). Mount the PVC pipe. Hold the trellis in place and insert PVC piece between the pre-drilled hole and the wall. Drill the screw through both the trellis and PVC piece into the wall. Tighten the screw 3/4 of the way. Repeat this process for each pre-drilled hole. Once all the screws are in place, take a step back, look at the trellis, and tighten all the screws securely.
