Light-Duty Screw Anchoring In Drywall

This method costs virtually nothing, and produces a sound screw anchor for light loads.

First, run in a short No. 6 drywall screw at the point(s) where you want your anchor(s).

Remove the drywall screw, blow away any dust and pump the hole full of wood glue from a squeeze applicator bottle.

Poke in a straight pin and wiggle it about to distribute the glue within the hole. Wipe away any excess glue with a moist paper towel. Leave the glue to cure overnight.

Install your item using a drywall screw, or any No. 6 screw. For a light, static load like a small notice board, the resulting screw anchor is quite adequate.
