How to hang a Canvas Painting Like a Tapestry

Here is a unique and simple way to get the effect of a tapestry without the expense. I bought my canvas and metal curtain tiebacks at Garden Ridge. You can find the dowels and hardware at any local hardware or craft store. To top it off, I placed a wrought iron hanging above it. I love the effect of how the canvas hangs from the dowel, so unique.

Supplies:
light weight picture canvas (my canvas is 40 x 30 inches)
set of metal curtain tiebacks
dowel (as long as the canvas)
wooden or metal finials (I used wooden finials)
hook and eye
screws

drill a pilot hole in both the dowel and canvas to screw in the metal hooks and eyes, and the finials on each end of the dowel

place a decorative wrought iron hanging of your choice above it (optional)
