If you are wondering what to do with the tapestry, we have some ideas for you. A tapestry is a piece of fabric that is sometimes thick and hand-woven and sometimes thinner and screen-printed. So there are plenty of tapestry ideas that you can start making today.

1. Create a statement wall

You can hang a tapestry on the wall which can make a powerful statement. Statement walls are designed to draw attention while enlivening a room’s design. Use tapestries to break up white walls or make a statement, even in a rental.

2. Hang from the ceiling

3. Use as a picnic blanket

4. Cover the sofa

There are a lot of reasons to cover your sofa – you know, maybe a cat attacked it, the kids spilt food on it, or you’re just tired of looking at the same old print. You can find larger tapestries that cover the couch well. Tuck it in around the edges and you have a brand new sofa on your hands.

5. Use as curtains

If you’re tired of the same old curtain options, spice things up with beautiful tapestries. You can use just one or more tapestries, depending on the style you are looking for. You can even hang them on a curtain rod to make things look fancy.
