How do you hang a fringed rug on the wall?
Place the fringes on one end of the rug between two slender pieces of wood (e.g., 1in x 1 in) that have been cut a few inches wider than the rug. Knot a (decorative) cord tightly around both pieces of wood on both sides of rug with a desired amount of length between the knots to allow the rug to be hung by the cord.
How do you hang a silk rug on the wall?
- Hand sew Velcro on the top back of the silk rug. Sew the soft, fuzzy part of the Velcro onto the silk rug.
- Staple or glue the stiff Velcro strip to a wooden board, cut slightly shorter than the silk rug.
- Nail the wood onto the wall, then smooth the Velcro-backed silk rug to it.
To hang your Navajo rug, use a 2” wide Velcro (just need the one-sided ‘grabby’ side) and a strip of thin wood/molding, to adhere the Velcro to. Measure length of the rug you are hanging and go slightly shorter (by about 1/8th inch) for the length of the wood.
How do you hang a heavy tapestry on the wall?
