Creating a Pattern on the Wall Without Using Wallpaper

For the last few weeks I have been helping a friend design her space on a tight budget. Staying on budget, I first found a few different options for fabric under $30/yard to make curtains. Now the next challenge is to create a pattern on the wall without using wallpaper or stencils.

A few of my ideas included decals and plastic 3-dimensional wall decor. We are going to buy a few sets of the falling leaves from Urban Outfitters and create our own pattern. By creating our own pattern with the leaves, she will have a unique wall design. I can't wait until the leaves come in the mail and then we can start our Saturday project of pinning the leaves to the wall. Wish us luck!
