How to Patch a Drywall Hole

Time to graduate from the fraternity house. Drywall holes are unsightly but the good news is, they are inexpensive and easy to fix. Michael Goldstein, our Mensch with the Wrench, has outlined an efficient way to make sure you’re walls are nice and even. It’s all smooth sailing from here.


  • Drywall patch kit
  • Utility knife
  • Putty knives


  1. Trim around hole
  2. Affix patch over hole
  3. Spackle over patch/hole
  4. Allow two hours to dry
  5. Sand spackle

Plan 1-2 hours for this easy project and only $5!
