    Paste it on or use Mod Podge (You may want to use a lining paper on first.

    You can apply wallpaper paste. Here's an informative post from HGTV: https://www.hgtv.com/design/decorating/design-101/how-to-install-a-fabric-feature-wall

    You can mount it using liquid starch! Pretty easy too, and doesn’t smell bad.

    You could find a canvas frame and stretch a wonderful piece of fabric over it and place it on the wall for art. Any size or combination of sizes would work.

    The easiest way to do this is to use liquid fabric starch. You put your fabric into it just like you would with wallpaper paste. Allow it to drip a bit & apply to your wall using a wallpaper brush to smooth it out. That's it - let it dry. The starch will dry clear. To remove it simply wipe with a damp sponge. It should release from the wall without damage. You can even wash & reuse the fabric. I saw this on Hour Magazine in the early 80's. It was in a Hints from Heloise section. She came from a military family & this was how her mom decorated thru all their moves.

    Use liquid starch! Bonus, it’s removable later.
