Here are our expert tips for mending a hole in the wall. 

1. Materials required

To repair a hole in your drywall, the first step is assembling the right materials. Here's what you need:

  • Sandpaper
  • Stanley knife
  • Putty knife
  • Cloth
  • Mending agent like SafeMend™  
  • Wall hole patch

2.  Prepare the hole in the wall 

Start by removing any excess paint shavings and loose drywall that may be behind the hole or attached to the edges of the hole. Then sand the edge of the hole until the surface is completely smooth. This ensures that the surface is suitable for the wall hole patch and mending agent to be applied.   

3. Attach the wall hole patch 

Peel away the backing paper from the sticky side of the wall hole patch. Apply the sticky side of the wall hole patch around the edges of the hole. Allow at least half an inch around the outside of the hole and smooth the edges of the patch firmly around the hole.  

4.  Apply mending agent to the wall patch and wall

Using a putty knife, liberally apply a non-toxic and easy-to-use mending agent  around the edges of the wall patch. Starting at the edges, gradually work your way into the middle of the wall patch in multiple directions. Make sure that you adequately cover the edges of the wall patch with the mending agent. Once the hole is covered, use a single downward stroke to smooth the mending agent and remove excess product. Allow the mending agent to dry overnight. 

5.  Sand the mending agent 

Using fine sandpaper, sand the mending agent until smooth. Ensure that the edges are flush with the rest of the wall. Depending on the size of the hole or if the wall hole patch has been exposed when sanding, you may choose to repeat this process, after allowing a day for drying. Once dry, you're ready to paint!
