How to Hang a Dowel Rod Tapestry

    Hanging with a Simple Wooden Dowel

    • 1). Measure the tapestry.

    • 2). Cut a thin, round wooden dowel slightly longer than the width of the tapestry.

    • 3). Slide the dowel inside the rod sleeve at the top of the tapestry.

    • 4). Screw one cup hook into each end and position with the openings facing downward.

    • 5). Hammer two picture frame nails just outside where the two top corners of the tapestry will hang, in line with the hooks.

    • 6). Hang the tapestry on the wall via the nails.

    Hanging with a Decorative Rod

    • 1). Purchase an expandable decorative rod or one with removable finials (decorative ends).

    • 2). Slide the rod inside of the sleeve and then attach the finials, making sure the finials are on tightly.

    • 3). Set two picture hanging brackets flush into the wall just outside where the two top corners of the tapestry will hang.

    • 4). Hang the tapestry on the brackets.
