Since my daughter was home for the fall, I moved my sewing space into our bedroom. That meant creating a new design wall. Rather than attaching it to the wall like I did in her room, I made a portable one.
With the previous one I used duct tape to attach the insulation boards together and created one large design wall. I also used duct tape to attach the flannel to the back of the insulation boards.
I skipped the tape and used silk pins for this one.
And, I made three separate design walls which I hung with pants hangers. You don’t have to use yellow flannel, but this is what I had in my stash.
- One (1) insulation board, 1/2 inch thick, 4 feet by 8 feet
- Three Flat Wood Pants Hanger
- Measure the insulation board into thirds. Mine was 96″ so 32″ each.
- Draw a line along each 32″ line.
- Score the insulation board with a knife:
- Cut with a knife or a old rotary cutter.
- Cut the flannel.
I cut mine about 2 1/4″ larger than the insulation.
52″ by 36.5″ (it doesn’t have be this exact size)
- Wrap the flannel around the insulation board:
- Use silk pins to hold in place. Here’s where you don’t have to use duct tape which I used in my large design wall.
- Miter all the corners and pin at an angle so that the pin doesn’t go through the front.
- Attach cup hooks to the hall.
I used chalk to mark the level line.
- Attach Pants Hanger to the insulation board and hang it:
I only hung two of the insulation boards and put the other one in the closet.
This was the perfect solution for me,

Thank you Wanda for sharing this. I often use a simple piece of batting and hang it with these wooden pants hangers directly on my wardrobe.
I like batting too, but it tends to collect strings and with the flannel the strings are easier to remove.

Great idea, as usual. Sandi
What a clever way to make a design wall Wanda! Thanks so much for sharing, after my move my design wall has gotten a bit wonky so it needs a little fix up!
Great. Happy hanging.
