    You could use wallpaper paste.

    You could use Liquid Starch.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_lY-BiWNUU

    They also staple on the fabric and then the other strip edges are wrapped and glued in place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTISZ3BnilU I prefer the liquid starch method.

    No wallpaper paste. Use liquid starch. Soak the fabric in the starch and wring out well. Apply the fabric like wallpaper. Easy to remove in the future. Will peel off without damage to the walls.

    Wonderful. I'll do it this way, cause I am concerned about preserving my walls.

    Thank you

    Hi Dkp: Instead of sticking it to the wall, how about just tacking it up? You can put a thin strip of narrow wood along the edges of the fabric and then tack that to the walls. You will have the look you want and can still use the fabric later on for something else if you want to. You can even use strips of decorative molding and paint it to match your fabric.
