Let’s start by looking at the short answer before we delve a little deeper.
How do I hang a photo blanket? You can frame it, or add clips to it for hanging it easily. Other options include threading it on a curtain rod or using existing structures such as circuit breaker boxes to keep the photo blanket in place. You can also use nails or glue to secure the photo blanket in the place of your choosing.
Regardless of the method you choose, you can be sure that the photo blanket will add a personalized touch to your home's interior!
A photo blanket is a perfect gift to commemorate a special family occasion such as a wedding, anniversary, birthday, or even just to say you care!

We all know a photo blanket looks amazing on your bed, but let’s start by looking at some ways you can use a photo blanket for decor purposes such as framing, adding it to a headboard, or as a backdrop for other art.
You can replace the paintings or photo frames hanging on your walls with a specially knitted photo blanket.
This is not only a chic way to brighten up any room, but it can also help you put your unique mark on your home’s interiors.
Another great way to use a photo blanket is to use it as a headboard.
You can use any quilt or blanket for this purpose. All you need to do is use a drapery rod right next to your bed in the place where you want your headboard to be or by just directly drilling the quilt into the wall.
You can match the color of your headboard with your bed-sheet to give it a coordinated look.

If you don’t want to use your photo blanket as the main attraction, you can use it as a backdrop. It can be used as a background of many paintings to add texture and make your existing art really pop!
For this purpose, you can use simple plain colored fabric for artistic paintings and heavily decorated ones for the simple paintings.
There are a number of ways you can hang your photo blanket onto the walls.
There are clips available that will help you to hang your photo blanket successfully or you can even use some strong magnets if attaching hem to suitable metal anchor points.
Alternately, you can install a drapery rod and hang the fabric into it, to prevent it from falling off, just sew the ends together from the back.
Another method is to use the nail comforter clips to hang the fabric on the wall. For fabric that is lightweight, simply use nails to tack them in.
This method will help keep your favorite pieces of fabric safe and sound hanging neatly on your walls.

Another wonderful way of styling your wall with a photo blanket is by framing it up. For this, you can use a large frame of your choice and stretch the blanket into it.
When you are satisfied with the arrangement, use double-sided tape or stapler pins to secure it in place.
To really add an artistic touch, you could perhaps use wooden frames and stick seashells around it or maybe to highlight your work of art and give a soft glow, you can also hang fairy-lights around this frame giving it a bespoke and unique look.
You can make a creative hanging for your piece of textile using a drapery rod with round rings on it, and then filling all the rings with strong material threads.
Make sure that the threads are not so weak that they break easily or are unable to bear the weight of the photo blanket.
This can prove to be a relatively easy way of creating a wall hanging using textile pieces.
Make sure to safely secure the drapery rod into the wall as well so that it never falls and hurts someone’s head. You can perhaps also add some small bows and flowers and use them to hide the nails if the blanket is hung directly into the walls.

A simple way of using those blankets for decoration purposes is to hang them over your circuit breaker box or to hide small plugs or switches away.
This can be easily achieved by simply hanging the small pieces of fabric over the desired switch and glue the top of the fabric to the wall. This will help in getting rid of all those pesky plugs which ruin your interior designs!
The overall design of your unique piece of wall art can be made even more attractive by adding a wealth of beautiful crafting accessories.
A really simple way to customize your photo blanket is by using ribbons to make roses and adding pretty bows and flowers that can be glued to your photo blankets with a simple glue gun.
You can also make your photo blanket look pretty by covering the draped box with ribbons or silky threads. Adding small details like this to your photo blanket can result in a totally unique and bespoke work of art!

You can also make some tap-tops similar to that as when you hang your curtain panels.
Arrange the photo blanket at the desired length, to find out how long or short you would like the finished drop to be.
Why not use your photo blanket in your study or snug to bring a sense of relaxation and also make you smile while working hard or simply chilling out.
You can use various techniques to hang your finished piece by either using a draping rod or hang it directly using nails, depending on how you prefer or what works best with your walls.
