A spot of green moss on the wall

Materials: Hampen carpet

Description: First you have to drill thin boards of wood on your wall. Then you have to glue the carpet on the boards of wood. (I used 12 little carpets – 80 on 80 cm) Use a strong glue. (in combination with tape roll that sticks on the two sides).

Good luck!

    I screwed carpet to my walls. The screws were small enough that the shag hid them.
