Placemat Tapestry

This week, I’ll be crushing through a series of wall art ideas I’ve created, or have been inspired by other creators via Pinterest or YouTube. From sharing easy home decor posts focusing on filling up our walls with inexpensive, budget friendly decor! We all have been seeing this great wall tapestries on Pinterest, as well as in the department store from Target, World Market to UrbanOutfitters. These wall tapestries bring in the Bohemian vibe into any home.

Create a focal point above your bed with a hippie bedcover mandala/boho tapestry to a, relaxedwoven hanging piece that warms up a wall. I personally,ย love geometric designs with tassels, and tribal global prints. These neutral designs, and tribal chic trends add great accents to any hallway or living space.

In this post, I’ll create the EASIEST tribal tapestry that looks to chic, your friends will be asking where you purchased it from!!!!ย This “hand made wall art,” will be perfect looking on walls with your Interior. Easy to hang on walls too!!

What You’ll Need:

  • Decorative Placemat.
    (I purchased mine at Target) Many stores have fantastic prints you can use, especially for the summer. But overall, any seasonal printed fabric works for a project like this.
  • Twine/Or necklace chain
  • Hot Glue (Optional for those who aren’t into sewing).
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Wooden Rectangular Dowel
  • Hacksaw
  • Hammer/Nails
  • Sandpaper
  • Embroidery Floss

Directions:

This is so easy, I’m sure many of you will read over my instructions, by just looking at my photos. BUT, for those of you who are technical learners in reading things (like my husband), here it is:

  1. Position your placemat long-sided down. ย Place the wooden dowel rod above the top of the placemat, and measure the exact place where you’d like to cut.
  2. Using a hack saw, I purchased mine at WalMart for only $4, carefully saw your wooden dowel, and sand down the freshly cut edge.
  3. Using your hammer and a few nails, nail in your placement to the back of wooden dowel.
    If you don’t have a hammer and nail, you can easily just hot glue the placemat to your wooden dowel.
  4. Lastly, take your necklace chain, and nail it in, and the ends of the wooden dowel. I used slim nail, with a fairly larger head, in order to keep the chain in place.**Make sure there’s enough in length to support the tapestry to be hung on any wall.**

And viola!! Short, quick and painless DIY thats totally trendy and looks just like the ones from the Nate Berkins Collection at Target or straight from UrbanOutfitters!!!!!! Stay tuned for the embroidery floss tassel tutorial up next, to add more to this easy tapestry!!!!
