Whether you choose to try creating your own or shop from the huge range available online (especially from Etsy); the wall hanging trend is huge. 

When colours and styles can be chosen to suit your interior, a wall hanging can add texture and a craft feel to a home. 

The workmanship and skill level can be so high in some of these fine works of craft but even the simple woven designs that novices can create can be beautiful and a great addition to a room styling.
