A flannel-backed vinyl tablecloth makes a perfect design wall. Reinforce several areas at the top of the tablecloth with duct tape (on the vinyl side), and then cut slits through them. Place adhesive-back hooks on a wall at the desired height and hang your tablecloth (flannel side facing out) on the hooks.
