Yeah, the keyhole idea looks like a winner. If you really want to go the extra mile, include a paper template for spacing the screws the correct distance apart. I’m assuming you’ll rout two slots, but I guess one could work as well.

For other projects that don’t require that much stability, like picture frames, I’ve had good luck using the standard toothed hangers. I just add squares of double-sided tape at the lower corners, and they stay put.

For large and heavy objects like mirror frames I screw them directly to the wall and cap the holes with decorative square plugs.

I think you’re on the right track with the keyhole slots for this project.
