Make Use of Nails or Pushpins:
Nails or pushpins are the simplest way to hang a tapestry. If you need to place a small or light piece, nails and push pins are a great option! (No ugly thumbtacks please!) Place the pins on both corners of one side and one in the middle of the piece for smaller pieces. When hanging a large tapestry, hang one every 10 inches away! The weight will be evenly distributed and the tapestry will remain straight. A larger weave works well with this technique; otherwise, the part might end up with holes. If you prefer a more direct look, stitch up the corners for a free-and-easy drape, or spread nails across the big top for a direct look.
Use a Baseboard:
A baseboard will assist in securing heavy materials and tapestries to the wall if they need a large amount of support. Pick out a board that will be set into the rod pouch at the back of the tapestry. You can hand-sew a pouch for your tapestry if it does not already come with one. Reduce the board’s size to match the tapestry’s size. Pin each screw location and drill holes. Into the pouch slide the board. The inclines of the tapestry should be bent back, and the card should be sunk into the wall.
Stretch Across A Frame:
The tapestry can also be stretched to a stiffer background. Stretching cloth across a wooden frame or plywood/card can transform it into a work of art. The tapestry should be stretched out and folded all over the frame, then stapled together. Mount the tapestry on the wall with sawtooth image hangers. The canvas might need to be stretched out and stapled to the border first to prevent the wood from seeing through the material. This method is particularly useful for heavier tapestries. For a tapestry, the frame material should be heavier than the tapestry itself! It’s easy to assemble the frame using screws or glue. At all ends, the frame should at least be an inch wider than the tapestry. However, you can alter it according to your preferences. The objective is to make the process of folding and stapling the bordered fabric easy.
