Do you need something GREAT to hang on your wall? Some budge wall decor for a large wall. Or small, this would work in a small space too. I have a super idea for you and if you stick with me you’ll catch the best budget buster tip for this idea!
I had this rug (above) that I love the design of, but it was so thin and moved around on the floor, even with a rug pad under it. It just wasn’t functional as a rug. Queue the tears. Instead of donating it or selling it I decided to go vertical with it and use it as a gorgeous wall tapestry. I have two story ceilings in my living room, so this long rug runner did wonders for the large wall space on my stairs that sat empty and lonely. Side note – I was going to use it in my bathroom, but sometimes I have to marinate on ideas and change my mind!
To turn my rug into a wall hanging I folded the top edge back and sewed it together leaving enough room to slide a curtain rod in. If you didn’t want to sew you could use fabric glue, but allow it to dry overnight for complete adhesion.
I used a new (to me) curtain rod for this project and it was one of the easiest things I’ve ever used and I’ve hung A LOT of stuff in my days. I wish I would have known about these curtain rods years ago, maybe they weren’t around!? Who knows, but they are on my favorites list now! It literally hangs with two nails in each side.
You can copy this idea with a simple curtain rod and rug. Watch the video for my tip on where to find a SUPER affordable option for this idea or check out the source guide below!

If you end up using an inexpensive rug remember you can always add trim to the bottom for extra decor. Use store bought trim or make your own pom poms to secure for a fun finish.
