Hanging a Wall Tapestry
Depending on your own preferences and circumstances, how you hang your wall tapestry can be just as telling about your personality as the wall tapestry itself. There are three basic ways to hang a wall tapestry, but at the same time, there are no hard and fast rules. Be creative!
- · Tapestry Rods: Probably the most common way to hang a wall tapestry is to use a decorative rod. Often, sites throw in a free rod when the wall tapestry is purchased. Depending on the tapestry, it may have a “sleeve” sewn into it that the rod slips through. If your tapestry has this, it provides one more option for you, and it useful if you do not want the rod to show so much. Some tapestries come with tab tops sewn on them, and the rod can be slipped through these. Other people prefer to remove these “tabs” and use decorative clips to suspend the wall tapestry from the rod.
- · Cardboard or light wood frames: If you prefer, you can wrap a tapestry around a piece of sturdy cardboard or lightweight wood and use a strong adhesive to secure the ends to the back. The only drawback with this is that some of the tapestry is “lost” as it folds over the back. However, you need less wall space than with a rod.
- · Framing: If your tapestry is small, you have the option to frame it. You will not need a matte, and non-glare Plexiglas is a good option so the colors of the wall tapestry can be seen well at all times. The advantage to this is that the frame can be chosen in any style you like. You can use the frame to “blend” design features as the eye moves from one part of your décor to another.
