a. Photo Gallery Wall Hanging Idea

One of the easiest wall hanging ideas is to create a self-styled photo gallery. Choose few frames of varying shapes and sizes and intersperse them with small wall decorations such as flowers and hearts. You do not need to attach the whole piece together. They can be hung separately, yet form a part of the same design. This looks especially great near the stairway.

b. Hang Rugs

Who said that rugs can only decorate floors? If you have an exquisite rug with a unique design, why not hang it up on your wall like a work of art for everyone to admire. It will truly look different from regular wall paintings hung up in most homes. A rug wall hanging will look especially great in the hall or in a passage of your home.

c. Use Recycled Materials

Yes, your old stuff can be recycled to add that wow factor to your walls. Tissue rolls can be cut into flowers, old sari cloth can be fashioned into wall hanging pouches or a collage, and leftover ice cream sticks can be painted and made into photo frames. The list can go on. If you have a bit more time, look into making wall hanging craft with paper from old magazines.

d. Knitted Wool Wall Hanging Idea

If you love knitting, then your woolly creations can be the perfect wall hanging design idea for you. Use a blank wall at home as your canvas to proudly display your knitting wonders. You can create a big woolly mat or go innovative and make smaller designs that can be hung together as one. As winter sets in, a woolly decoration on your wall will keep perfectly in tune with the Christmas spirit.

e. Wall Mirrors

One quintessential wall hanging idea found in almost every home- a mirror is the simplest way to spruce up a blank wall. Buy a mirror with a colorful frame or DIY and decorate it with beads, quilling or any funky design you fancy. A mirror brightens up the space, makes the room seem larger, and adds a touch of subtle elegance to the room.

f. Set up Shelves

One of the simplest wall hanging ideas is to create a unique shelf design. Opt for a single shelf piece or bring together several smaller ones to create a singular large design. Opting for asymmetrical patterns always looks especially appealing. A shelf wall hanging design is great for the usually blank wall behind the couch.
