yes i would hang it on a wall....even if you have to fold the bottom up

If it totally doesnt fit your style of decor, or its way too big to hang on your wall...I wouldnt be afraid to cut it. I think it would make an awesome skirt or dress if its something you'd want to wear, but if you still want to use it as a piece of decor, you could cut it into sections and stretch it across empty canvas frames, and even light it from behind (different coloured lights and/or lights you could change with the seasons would be awesome). Or it would make an awesome coffee table or light table cover.

but failing all of that, yeah, it would still be an awesome wall hanging

I would add complimenting fabric on either side and make a bedspread. I have a king sized bed though, wo it would fit fairly well once it was all done.


Guess who's back?

Sell it to me so I can hang it in my bedroom. It's gorgeous.

Shoot me cause I'm gonna say cut it up.  Cut squares/rectangles in sizes to fit in black picture frames.  Then you could make it like one of those windowpane/rasterbated type images. 

edit*  I just thought if you did this, you could also put the tree top frames on the ceiling so that it tiles down from the ceiling down to the floor.

omg ... my jelaous face -->  Shocked

you could sell it to me, name your price lol...that would work for sure... ummmm you could hang it somehow on a wall shorter than 9' by hanging it from the ceiling and somehow tacking it to the corner so you can enjoy it all the time but dont have to cut it.  it's so awesome, what a great find!

OMG - I saw that exact same art piece in the local op-shop in town, but they wanted $20 for it so I passed it by - just checked your profile to see if you where a neighbour - but you definatly ain't from Australia   Grin Grin Grin

I was going to suggest the same thing. This is what I would do. Smiley

don't have to cut it up even if your wall isn't tall enough. just flip it on to its side and let let the ends end up in different rooms!
