How to Hang Tapestries In Different Ways?


If your tapestry hasn't been passed down for centuries, nail up the corners. Hammer one corner, then try and adjust the tapestry drape before nailing the other. Leave it hanging or nail it to the bottom.


Push pins are ideal for tapestry corners without nails sticking a half-inch off the wall. Push pins leave few drywall marks, which benefits renters. For small or lightweight tapestries, tack the top corners with two push pins.


Velcro is a simple method for hanging tapestries, particularly on harder walls like brick or cement. Velcro one side to the tapestry's back and the other to the surface.


Slide baseboard through the rod pocket on the back of a tapestry—you can sew/attach one—making sure it's slightly longer than the pocket.


A poster hanger works for slender tapestries. Place an end of the tapestry between the rails and center the hanger on a nail or other wall-friendly hook or anchor.

If your small tapestry is too fragile to hang, use a shadow box. Although this will reduce the tactile experience of hanging a tapestry, it will protect the fragile fabric.

Or, punch holes in the fabric corners or along one tapestry side and add grommets. Attach grommets to adhesive hooks or thread rope or curtain rods through them to hang.


To evenly distribute the tapestry's weight, hang the rope from two or more nails, depending on its size.

Slim Rope On Hooks

Depending on its size, you can drape it over all four posts or just the foot or side rail. Use clamps or thin, coordinating fabric to secure.

With a tapestry over a freestanding room divider, an open floor plan can have a unique "wall" for privacy. It's a great way to spice up a video call for home workers.

Attach two ends of a clothesline with rope to a wall in your home, then attach the tapestry either by draping it over or securing it with clothespins.
