How To Hang A Tapestry From The Ceiling


If you're looking for ways to hang a tapestry, but don't want it on the surface of your walls, you might wonder how to hang a tapestry from the ceiling.

Traditionally a wall décor selection, the tapestry doesn't have to be relegated to the role of a wall hanging.

If you are looking to be creative in your interior design, you can hang the wall tapestry from the ceiling as a sign of innovation.

Love the idea of a ceiling tapestry in your home or dorm room?

The only things left to do is decide how you want to display it, and which of the many ways you would like to try.

Also, you'll need a ladder, so if you don't have one in your location, you should find one.


THE EASIEST WAY

Use nails or push pins to secure the decor to the ceiling. If your wall tapestry fabric is light, this is all you need to do.

Step 1: Mark where you want to hang it.

Then put a fastener in the four corner points so that the middle of the tapestry sags down, giving a tent-like feel.

That's the only step.

You can also stretch each side taut and put fasteners on each side or portion of the tapestry so that the edge and back are flat against the ceiling.

It all depends on your preferred styles.

If you want to avoid putting holes in the ceiling, try a velcro strip. Make sure your product is rated for the weight you need to support.

The method is easy -- it just requires a light touch and not many steps. Read this post, follow the steps, and adhere to the velcro tape strips to the ceiling and the tapestry.

If the tapestry is a bit heavier, you can utilize double lines of hook and loop velcro tape on each side - be sure you're putting the lines of velcro loop strip on the ceiling and the line of hook strips on the tapestry.

There are lots of products available for fastener strips. Just read the instructions for the one you need. Voila, your piece is up, and there are no holes to look at with velcro hook and loop.

If you're handy, build a DIY frame to display your tapestry on the ceiling (utilize a glue gun) and mount it to the ceiling step by step with screws in the corners.

Frames add to the textiles' beauty. Glue your own to create a unique artwork picture of any tapestries' size.

HANG IT WITH MAGNETS

Another answer to the question of how to hang a tapestry from the ceiling is to use magnets. Follow these steps.

 

Step 1:

Mark their position with a pencil.

 


Step 2:

Mount the magnet pieces at each pencil mark.

 


Step 3:

Set the tapestry against the magnet, and put the opposing parts over them. The magnetic elements act like glue to hold tapestries up without damage.

You can easily switch out tapestries of similar size with this method.

HANG FABRICS FROM A CURTAIN ROD

A wood or metal rod can be placed on the wall.

But people who are looking for ways to display a ceiling tapestry collection can use the rod and brackets on the ceiling instead.

The tapestry can have a rod pocket at one end (like a window type curtain), or it can simply hang over the rod if it's long enough.

If you are in a small apartment and need ideas on how to divide inside space, one long length of material hung from the ceiling in the middle of a room, or behind a sofa, can create a feeling of multiple inside home spaces.

This is an excellent idea for a shared college room, allowing two private areas for mattresses.

With numerous colors of tapestries, the experience could be like images of a Victorian art gallery.

USE IT AS A HEADBOARD

Depending in part on the width of your tapestry and the ceiling area in your bedroom, you can hang a tapestry as a head board.

It will hang over your bed when you suspend it from the ceiling over the back of the mattress. You can create texture and patterns with artful folds of varying sizes.

Repeat for designs in the color and pattern of your choosing.

Try matching it to your bedding.

Study the information and tips from any of the hanging methods we already discussed to hang a ceiling tapestry in safety and comfort.

Find inspirations in pictures and news articles online and pay attention to the details when you find something you'd like to replicate in your house.

Tapestries are back!
