Create A Wall-Hanging – An Expression Of You

The Beauty of Wall-Hangings
There is an empty space on one of your walls that really needs your attention. But instead of hanging a picture of over sized flowers or a pastoral scene with cows walking aimlessly around a field, why not consider a wall-hanging? And no matter that you are not a Rembrandt or Picasso when it comes to artistic ability, why not make it yourself? There is no limit of styles, colours and materials available to you. To begin, you must decide what colours would accent the area and how short or long your hanging should be to best suit the space. The simplest wall-hanging can be as easy as attaching a beautiful scenic or geometric scarf draped over a wooden dowel with a hanging mechanism attached. Don’t be fooled. There are some very exquisite scarves and woven materials available from around the world and are available for your shopping enjoyment on the web. Of course, some wall-hangings are made with some very complicated designs and materials such as macramé, embroidery and metal die-cuts for example.
A visit to the many websites where you can pick up some ideas and instruction on creating wall hangings is highly recommended. A favorite wall hanging and fairly easy to create is the ring wall-hanging. There are a variety of designs available online that are fairly simple and inexpensive to create that will add interest to any space. You can be amazingly creative, limited only by your imagination. One particular website that provides excellent ideas and detailed instruction is WikiHow where you will find a wide range of designs for the beginner as well as the more accomplished. https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Wall-Hanging#Create-a-Yarn-Wall-Hanging_sub.
