Fabric wall hangings can be made in many shapes and designs. The hangings can fill a large wall with colour and character and make a bold statement in any room, resulting in a beautiful and impressive decor. Customise your fabric wall hanging to your preferences and style and create an attractive interior design.

For the talented craft person, creating a handmade wall hanging out of fabric can result in a conversation piece. Try homemade fabrics such as quilts, fabric photo transfer collages or hand-sewn masterpieces. A personalised collage of signatures, special messages and memorable photos on a piece of decorative fabric make an impressive wedding, anniversary or retirement gift that can be hung on the wall to reminisce. Handmade baby quilts with the baby's name stitched into the fabric and hung on the wall will give a cosy touch to a baby's nursery.


An antique or modern cloth tapestry hung directly on the wall or in a customised frame makes an impressive wall hanging. Tapestries often have a story being told in their unique picture, especially antique ones. Many represent medieval days or lavish country sides and gardens

Inspirational Throws

A military blanket, patriotic throw or one with a nature scene and a Bible verse stitched on it or other encouraging wall hanging will give a room inspiration. Carry over the same topic into the rest of the room to tie in the decor.

Themed Material

A decorative Chinese bamboo mat attached to a strip of burlap or other material, or a favourite children's character or animal print strip of material hung on the wall, can coordinate the room's theme more extensively. Try the same idea in a southwest-themed room by hanging a striped Mexican blanket or a material that depicts the colours and theme.


Hang a large piece of felt material to a wall in a child's room that is decorated in their colours or favourite characters. Cut out felt people, animals, houses, trees or other fun characters to create a type of felt board like the ones used years ago in church Sunday school classes. Let your child have creative play time with the characters sticking easily to the felt. Use the same concept for a large cloth family calendar or chore chart with Velcro or felt stick on colour coordinated organizational dots. Have each family member represent a different colour dot and place their dot on the chart once their assigned chore is complete.
