Wall tapestries are no doubt our most versatile product. They might be pros at turning a blank wall into a colorful canvas, but their innovative styling options are essentially endless.
So if you need a reason to buy one (or three!) or if you’re looking to refresh the use of your tried and true here to give us a few tips on the fresh ways she uses her wall tapestries. Have you put your own wall tapestry to creative use? Tell us about it in the comments below!
1. A Better Bedspread
Comforters are often an investment, so when you’re aching for a new bedroom feel, it can be hard to justify buying another expensive bedspread. Don’t be bummed—tapestries are an affordable way to give your bed some new vibes and using it as a mandala bedding. Just lay the tapestry over your existing duvet or comforter and hello change. As someone who loves to switch up my style (especially for the seasons), this has been an easy and effective way to keep things from ever feeling stale.
2. An Outdoor Oasis
We should all spend more time outdoors—never mind pleasant breezes or fragrant flowers, the Vitamin D alone is enough to brighten any mood! So, when that outdoor inspiration strikes, I recommend grabbing a wall tapestry to serve as a “picnic” blanket. As light as it is soft, it’ll fit into your tote with ease, leaving you plenty of room for your books, laptop, and La Croixs for all. Plus, if you get a little over-eager with your PB and J, just throw it in the wash and it’ll be clean in to time!
3. The Instant Centerpiece
I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for wallpaper, but the price, commitment level and effort are a bit daunting. Thankfully, if placed thoughtfully, a wall tapestry can obtain the same bold, focal-point effect! Measure the wall you want to spruce-up and make sure you order a tapestry with similar dimensions. Depending on the size, nailing it into the wall at the four corners (and maybe at a few other points) can create a flush look that’s comparable to any wallpaper that you know and love!
The Process Of Hanging Tapestries.
Please go through the following 3 methods:
#1. Rod in Casing
There are a lot of options for rods out there like you’ll find here and here. Casings make the things simpler for wall hanging tapestries and what you have to do is slip the rod in and hang it on nails. To be honest simply sew on heavy weight fabric across the back to fit the width of your rod in case you’d like to add a casing.
#2. Velcro attached to a strip of wood
For those wanting to avoid putting any holes in their tapestry then Velcro is the great method. This is basically pertaining to a heavier tapestry and for the same the hint is to make sure your velcro has staying power. Nail a strip of wood just slightly shorter than the tapestry into wall studs. Adhere the rougher velcro side to your strip of wood on the wall and the opposite velcro piece to the very top of the BACKSIDE of your tapestry, and then connect your velcro. This in turn will hung your tapestry without putting a single hole in your prized wall art.
#3. Mounting on Plywood Board
The step that works well for both thinner and heavier tapestries is mounting your tapestry onto a wood frame. If you have a heavy or thick tapestry, you can extend and take a piece of thin wire with two short right-angled end pieces and drive it by a stapler through sheets of paper. In this method the edges of your tapestry will be flipped to the back of the plywood board and stapled down.
This wood board would need to be wider and longer as it will serve as the “frame” for your tapestry wall art. you will need to sew your tapestry directly to the focal point of the fabric using a curved needle. The fabric showing along the perimeter will border your tapestry quite nicely once your heavy linen fabric is stapled onto the board. To avoid unattractive sagging later due to uneven weight support make sure to sew your tapestry around the perimeter, as well as at various points on the interior of the tapestry in order. Be sure to use thread colors that match your tapestry closely and no one will even notice.
