    How to make a design wall fast, easy, and inexpensively

    I posted my new design walls last week and mentioned I was writing a tute for it. I try to write a quick tute for any new technique that I do because my memory is not what it used to be and I was tired of saying..."Now how did I do that???"

    You will need to have the free program 'Acrobat Reader' installed on you computer to open the attachment. It can be downloaded at this site http://get.adobe.com/reader/

    That is quite brilliant! I love that you put the ribbons on for the lines, but looks so decorative.

    If you don't have room for a permanent design wall, just use a flannel backed tablecloth (flannel side up) and staple it to your wall. The regular staples leave very small holes and it is not a problem to remove it if you are having visitors.

    Very good tutorial - thank you. I hadn't thought of angling the pins - my experience was pushing them straight in (or thumb tacks) but it leaves holes in the foam board and then nothing will stick in the holes any more. I'll try slanting. I did make a small one and used felt covering and the block stuck to the felt by itself, but it wasn't a very complicated or heavy block. Thank you again for your tutorial. :-)

    Believe it or not buy you can use a straight pin as a nail and it hardly leaves a mark when you take it down. All you need is 4-5 across the top.
