Lighted Christmas Tapestry Wall Hangings are a Thing of Real Beauty
Lighted Christmas tapestry wall hangings that have fiber optics incorporated into them can’t fail but to impress guests, brighten up the winter and usher into your home the joy and spirit of Christmas. The particular tapestries I’m covering in this review are based on the beautiful paintings of painter Thomas Kinkade.
These beautiful’ tapestries are all around 36 inches by 26 inches in size and have lots of fiber optic lights. Some of them like “Christmas Chapel” sold by ‘Blankets’ come with a wooden rod, hanging hardware and a remote control making it a lot more convenient to put it on the wall and turn it on and off. Be sure to make note what extra’s the seller is providing.
On the back of the tapestry is a box tucked into a velcro pocket that holds 3 AA batteries and has an off and on switch. It needs three AA batteries to power the lights. Make sure you have spare batteries because leaving it on all night or forgetting to turn it off over night may end up completely draining the batteries.
The Artist Thomas Kinkade
Thomas Kincade, the “Painter of Light” was an American painter of idyllic subjects. Tranquil scenes of cottages surrounded by beautiful gardens. Glorious landscapes with gold, purple and green trees and flowing streams. He even covered city scapes and managed to infuse into them the beautiful colors he was so obviously drawn to and illuminate them with light. His works were mass marketed as printed reproductions and other licensed products and it’s estimated that one in 20 homes in America have one. Even here in Taiwan I was easily able to purchase one which has been adorning my wall for almost a decade now.
