    No need to get fancy creating a design wall. Anything that fabric will stick to works.
    Mine is a solid-colour flannel sheet draped over the spare mattress which is leaned up against the wall.
    My friend draped an old flannel sheet over some closet doors when she was renting a place.
    You do want to be able to apply enough pressure to the wall in order to smooth out a larger piece of fabric that you are sticking to it.

    What is the best way to fasten the fleece or flannel or whatever to the insulation board? I bought lots of off white fleece for this purpose, but haven't bought the boards yet. Doesn't seem like duct tape would stick very well to the fleece.

    This is what I did before I was able to get it attached to the wall and it works fine--just don't let a gust of air grab it and over it goes. Happened a couple of times but I keep my doors open as much as possible, no problem now with it attached.

    I would duck tape both sides!!! my mom has done this for murals and she found that if she didn't they didn't hold up as well.
