For my wall

Jenna Venter of Mossel Bay writes: I’ve inherited a lovely but massive tablecloth and since I live in a ?at, I don’t have a table big enough to do it justice. I’d like to use it as a wall hanging; how do I go about it?

Nick Henshilwood of Hang it Now replies: Fabric can be hung from a rod inserted through a loop of fabric sewn into the tapestry and hung on two hooks. Otherwise, we use a thin strip of wood called a carpet gripper which is attached to the wall. It has tiny nails sticking out the front and the fabric grips onto these. It is an ‘invisible’ method and works very well.

Also consider this...
Attach the ‘loops’ side of a strip of Velcro to the fabric (it can be sewn on). Then, using a staplegun, attach the ‘hooks’ side of the Velcro to a piece of 22mm pine, the length of which should be the same as the width of the fabric. Affix the wooden strip to the wall using screws, then hang the fabric from it by pressing the two strips of Velcro together.
