    Default Hanging a picture on exterior brick wall

    I have a wall plaque i'd like to hang on my exterior brick wall. I've read conflicting info on whether to drill into the brick or mortar. Any thoughts?

    Brick is not as strong as cement block or mortar, so if the item has any amount of weight to it, hang it in the mortar.

    Using a masonry bit and drill, drill a hole, insert a wall anchor and hang your item.
