Hanging hippie tapestries are just like hanging pictures or paintings in your home. You will find that there are literally hundreds of designs you can choose, including tie dye, rock bands, rock legends, or themes that fit your décor and style. You are sure to be able to find just the tapestry you need for your space.
However, it’s important to know a few things before you head out to buy your hippie tapestries. You will first want to spend some time measuring the wall to ensure you get one the right size for your area. It’s important to think of how much wall space you want around your tapestry once you’ve placed the center of the tapestry in the center of your wall. This will determine the size tapestry you need.
Depending on your needs and budget, you can consider buying trippy tapestries, Indian tapestries, or other hippie themes, or you could go for splashes of color, Celtic designs, tie dye and the like. You’ll find them in varying price ranges from inexpensive to quite expensive. So bear that in mind when you go shopping.
Additionally you could consider using your hippie tapestry as bedspreads, covers over doorways, windows, and the like. Such spreads on a bed can be quite effective in a room. Hippie stuff is very versatile and can be used in almost any way in your home.
It is important when looking for just the right bohemian tapestries for your special room to bring along swatch samples of your couch, curtain, or anything else in the room that you want to match so you have an idea of the design and color you will need to match.
In some cases you can check the material the tapestry as made of so it will match your furniture and the curtains.
If you find a great design, consider not purchasing it yet. Instead ask the sales person to hold on to it for you. Then check online to see if you can find a better price.
You will need to purchase a rod and brackets to display your tapestry on the wall. Make sure when you get them at the hardware store that you get one that can support the weight of the tapestry. You can also sew a sleeve for a rod on the back of your tapestry to hang it just like a curtain.
If you don’t want to hang it with a rod, you can buy brads and tacks instead. Make sure you have enough tacks to attach the tapestry to the wall without sagging. Or, use a strip of Velcro.
Hippie wall tapestries may drape behind some furniture, or be the focal point in a room’s design. Either way they are a great addition to your music theme, or other hippie themed room. Consider using a soul flower design as a conversation piece.
Tapestries have been used in many cultures all over the world for centuries. Rich people used them on their castle walls. Why can’t you?
Hippie tapestries aren’t nearly as expensive these days and are a great way to express your own sentiments in a luxurious and fun way.
