It might seem like we’ve gone MIA with our wall hanging decor, but trust us, we haven’t. We’ve just been tied up in LARGE custom order pieces and today we wanted to bring you behind the scenes of this Scandi/mid-century style piece we’ve been working on. Our customer requested the size for this tapestry to be 18″ x 40″ because she needed it to cover an electrical box in her dining room.
Her dining room has a really beautiful rug with a diamond pattern so we wanted to bring that element into the wall hanging as well and make it more geometric. In our original sketch, we decided on blue tassels for the center to bring in some color, but ultimately, we switched them to be charcoal. We love super chunky and thick tassels at the bottom and we definitely had fun putting all the layers into this piece. These tassels had to be extra thick to make sure the electrical box didn’t peek through 🙂
For this custom tapestry, we used Peruvian wool, mix tape cotton, and Shiny Happy cotton from Wool & the Gang. You can shop all of these beautiful yarns below to create your own wall decor!
