Drill the wall above the area you wish to protect and insert cup hooks to hang the fleece. Make sure to avoid any electrical wires and use extreme care when using ladders and power tools.

Staple over the top and bottom of the piece of fleece to create hems through which canes can be inserted.

Thread canes through through the fleece at the top and bottom. These will keep the fleece flat and help weigh it down.
