If you're stuck for ideas/money to fill a wall space, wall hangings are a great idea.
I made this one from scraps of fabric, bonded them to a cotton backing, hand embroidered where the pieces met, then trimmed to make a square. Each of these was bound, again by hand. Then I simply stuck them firmly to thick scrap cardboard.
They're joined together with beads. At the top, I added a curtain ring; at the bottom I attached larger beads and a tassel. Voila!
You could, of course, with imagination, customise and vary the shape/size etc. of yours, and embellish to taste. With wall hangings, there's so much scope and little demand on your bank account.
