    For a temporary installation that is removable: (1-3 hours of work, depending on size of room)Measure the room or space to determine how much coverage you needGo to a place like Lowe’s, Home Depot or some other store that sells paint and buy wallpaper in their clearance department (can cost under $15)Buy 3M Scotch replaceable (not permanent) mounting tape squares (sold at Broad St, Staples etc.) The store will recommend paste but this is Wesleyan you’re dealing with. ($1.99/pack, you will need several)Cut the paper to appropriate measurements, but leave 1-2 additional inches for creasesPlace at least two mounting squares on the upper ends of each slice of paper (if needed place two on the lower corners)Hang up the paper and smooth out any creasesIf some sections fall, you either need more tape or cut the slice into smaller pieces
