About a year ago, I pulled together Louisa’s sweet room and one of my favorite projects in there is this hanging stenciled ‘tapestry’. I made it from my favorite Ikea throw rugs (used in our old house as a runner) and never really shared the full tutorial.
DIY Stenciled Wall Hanging
I am thrilled to share the full step-by-step tutorial HERE on eHow. Spoiler alert: it’s super quick. Super easy. And super cheap.
For both of these stenciled wall hangings, I started with a cotton throw rug… Homegoods often has a good stash, but so do places like World Market, Marshalls or Ikea! See source list at the end of this post (affiliate links).
To add a little flare… tassels. ALWAYS tassels. I DIY my own with scrap yarn, but they’re pretty easy to find these days online at places like etsy or Amazon.
The word is simply written in my handwriting and I love how it not only brings texture, but also COLOR into these fun spaces. A stencil tapestry like this can easily integrate into a child’s room like I’ve done, but… a neutral rug and a more graphic font could easily translate into a more formal or adult space. Again… for $15-$25… this DIY is a home run.
