If you purchased a weaving hung from driftwood, or you're planning on creating a piece hung from driftwood, it can be difficult to hang it in a way that looks pleasing. Try angling the wood against the wall as flat as you can, twisting the stitches holding the weaving to the wood. If you're hanging from a string, play around with how the weaving falls. If you're balancing the wood on a few nails, try placing the nails under two crooks in the wood so that the weaving balances better.

2. Hang your weaving on a door.

Walls full? Want to add something to a plain door that's usually closed, such as a closet or pantry door? Hang a weaving on it! Tap a little nail into your door, or use a transparent thumbtack for minimal visual distractions.

3. Amp up your window interest.

Hang a weaving from your window - especially if it's big and light!

4. Framed and protected.

Intense about keeping your weavings safe? Display them in a shadow box or frame for a polished look that will keep your pieces from getting dusty or damaged.

5. Layer, layer, layer.

For extra texture, try hanging your weaving from a pallet or a separate backdrop, which then gets hung or leaned against the wall. For even more texture, layer a few different sizes of weavings together!
