I decided I wanted to use some of our vacation photos on the walls in our bedroom (a practice my husband says makes us look like “old folks” but photocrafting won out.) A favorite part of any trip for us is getting to see the sun set over a body of water so that was an obvious choice. Wanting something larger than a canvas (and yes, we have those too), I found Custom Wall Tapestries. It’s definitely a delight for photocrafters. I could not have been happier; the result was marvelous. I love seeing it every day!
It’s an easy process.
1). Take a picture you want to put into a hanging. Note that you will want to be sure the image has some good contrast. Varying shades of the same color will not show up well.
2). Pick the size tapestry you want and add it to your car.
3). Check out. You can pay with a credit card or PayPal.
4). Then email the image, being sure to identify the image attachment so they know which order it accompanies.
The small and large hangings are on sale right now:
|Small||34″ w x 26″ h (or 26w x 34h)||Total $119.95|
|Large||53″ w x 40″ h (or 40w x 53h)||Total $219.95|
|Grande||70″ w x 53″ h (or 53w x 70h)||Total $394.95|
I started with an image I liked looking out over the Pacific Ocean near Tillamook Head. I thought the couple on the beach added interest to the view (though I was a little apprehensive about whether or not they would show up on the tapestry.) I cropped the picture to eliminate some of the extra grass before the sand (and increase the size of the couple) and then lightened up the image.
I chose the 34″ wide x 26″ high size, filled out the order form, and emailed the photo. I was very pleased with the final result. You can see the detail in the weaving in the close-up photo of the couple on the sand.
The photo tapestry wall hanging I ordered is Jacquard loom woven with 100% cotton threads and yarn. It comes fully lined with a sewn sleeve in the top to slide your rod through for easy hanging. You have to buy the rod separately. Note that there is an option for a wool and cotton blend that is higher in price.
July is a good time to start thinking about holiday gifts. You have to order by December 1 to be sure to receive the tapestry by Christmas. Better yet, do something for yourself. I’m glad I did!
