Materials Needed

  • Handwoven item(s) – woven wall hanging, basket etc.
  • Adhesive hooks or adhesive picture hanging strips
  • Wall anchors and nails or picture hanging hooks
  • Double-sided tape
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Pencil or chalk

  • Level (optional)

Step-by-Step Guide

  • Choose the Perfect Location

Begin by selecting the ideal spot on your wall for showcasing your handwoven item. Consider factors such as room layout, natural lighting, existing décor, and eye-level visibility.

  • Measure and Mark

Using a measuring tape or ruler, determine the height and width of your handwoven item. Locate the center point on the back of the item and mark it with a pencil or chalk.

  • Determine Hanging Method

Consider the weight and size of your handwoven piece to decide the appropriate hanging method. Here are three common options:

  1. Double-sided Tape: For lightweight items like Tonga baskets, winnowing trays (uteos), small macramé decorations or lightweight wall hangings, double-sided tape is a convenient choice. Look for high-quality adhesive tape designed specifically for hanging items on walls. Cut the tape to match the width of your handwoven item and apply it to the back, aligning with the marked center point.
  2.  Adhesive Hooks or Picture Hanging Strips: Adhesive hooks or adhesive picture hanging strips are suitable for medium-weight items. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to attach the hooks or strips to the wall, aligning them with the marked center point. These options are easy to install and remove, leaving no damage to the walls.
  3. Wall Anchors and Hooks: For heavier handwoven items, wall anchors and nails or picture hanging hooks provide stability and support. Install wall anchors according to the manufacturer’s instructions, position the hooks on the wall, aligning with the marked center point, and secure them with a hammer.
  • Prepare the Wall

Clean the area of the wall where you plan to hang your handwoven item, ensuring it is free from dust or debris that might compromise adhesion or affect the hanging process.

  • Hang the Handwoven Item

Lift your handwoven item, aligning the marked center point with the chosen hanging method. Press the item firmly against the wall or attach it to the hooks, ensuring it hangs straight. Use a level if desired to check for perfect alignment.

  • Check for Stability

Once your handwoven item is hung, gently give it a light tug to ensure it is securely attached to the wall. Make any necessary adjustments to ensure stability.


By following this comprehensive DIY guide, you can confidently hang your handwoven baskets on your walls, transforming your living space into a cozy and visually captivating environment. Choose the hanging method that best suits your handwoven item’s weight and size, utilizing materials readily available from local stores or even at home. Whether you opt for double-sided tape, adhesive hooks, or wall anchors and hooks, the process is straightforward and adjustable. 

Disclaimer: Always follow manufacturer instructions, exercise caution when handling tools, and consider wall type and weight limitations when selecting the appropriate hanging method. Test the adhesive strength on a small, inconspicuous area of the wall before applying it to your handwoven item.
