hanging a picture on a brick wall?

i tried to put a nail into my brick wall to hang up a picture, and it just bent the nail. is there any other way to hang up a pic? i don't want to have to get out the power drill and find a masonry drill bit and put in a cap thing and blah blah blah... is there a simple way to hang it up instead?

  • Use masonary nails and put it in the mortar not the brick

  • they have hangers that stick to the wall with a glue or tape thing and when you want to move it or have to take it down you pull a strip and it comes off

  • We have crown moulding; all of our pictures are hung from there on hooks with wire.
