How do you hang a quilt on the wall without damaging it?
Use self-adhesive strips.
“Hold the strip parallel with the top edge of the back of the quilt, just inside the binding, and sew it down using a whip stitch around the edges. Repeat until you have a strip in each corner, and every 18 inches or so, and then hang it like you would a large picture.”
How do you hang a quilt on the wall with Command Strips?
Peel off the quilt, apply pressure for 30 seconds to each wall-strip, and then wait for an hour. Hang the quilt! Re-align the strips on the quilt to the strips on the wall, and press hard, locking the strips. Enjoy!
How do you hang a blanket on the wall without nails?
Although it may seem like an easy solution, using nails to hang your fabric can cause damage to both your fabric piece and your walls, so you may be looking for an alternative. Try using velcro strips for a quick fix, clothespins for a more decorative option, or a curtain rod and hooks for heavy-duty fabric pieces.
Do you have to use rubbing alcohol for Command strips?
Command strips can only be applied to smooth surfaces. Avoid adhering them to brick walls, textured wallpaper, concrete or timber. Strips work best on clean, smooth surfaces, so wipe the wall with isopropyl rubbing alcohol (methylated spirits) first.
Do Command hooks stick to fabric?
On the other side of the command strip apply a layer of powerful glue to ensure that the fabric sticks to the strips and can hold up. For the fabric blind to hold up you also need to add a sufficient number of command strips. If you use fewer strips than required your blind will fall off.
Can you hang tapestry with Command Strips?
For strict landlords: If your tapestry is thin fabric, you can use tack, velcro, pushpins, or Command Strips. For thicker woven materials, you might consider attaching your wall hanging to foam core first to distribute the weight a little better and then attach.

- Frame It. Fragile fabrics and smaller tapestries may be best behind glass.
