Oh noes!!!
I saw this idea on a cheap home deco show a few years ago. The episode covered the entire wall with a thin decorative fabric. Most likely cotton, similar to the fabric used for quilting.. I'm a little curious & may try a wall in the garage or something just for kicks... Anyways, here is a scaled down version of it.
This works great for those who live in apartments & are afraid to paint but still want some personality on their walls.

This was done in my daughter's room, who switches back & forth to fave colors like no body's business.

It's really easy & simple, and when you get tired of it just peel off the wall & wash down with a damn cloth.

Q:Where do you find liquid starch?
A:In the laundry isle, normally at the top shelf & in a Bright blue Bottle (most common brand in my area)similar to a bleach white bottle...

Q:which size starch do I buy?
A: Stick with the smaller if it's a small project. You are not going to need much.

  • Step 1

    Cut your fun pieces out of felt. Your choice of colors & shapes.
    You can even buy the pre-cut package ones at the art store to make it super easy on you.

    I think fun papers would work too as long as the color doesn't bleed & ruin your walls. I suggest you test it out in a less obvious spot before proceeding w/ a project.

    In our case we had different sizes of circles, in colors of greens and blues.

    Step 2

    Now take your pieces & soak them in the liquid starch.

    STOP!

    Don't do them all at once. Be patient! Do them one at a time!

    Don't over soak them or you'll have drip marks down your wall.

    Wring them out if needed & then place on wall.

I think it's awesome, and I like how you say to remove it "wash with a damn cloth" It makes you sound so edgy, though I'm pretty sure you just mean damp, it still made me giggle.

My daughter is finally settling on a Paint color so the circles may be coming off soon. Thanks for commenting. Would love to see some pics of your project, jinx.

Looks like fun, we own our own house an I was bored one day an took colored chalk an made circles around my ceiling with the colors of the rainbow. It came out pretty nice an you can use your fingers to smooth it out so it kinda looks painted on, but to remove it you'll have to paint over it.
