I made this mosaic wall from many bags of glass gems used for floral arrangements from the Dollar Tree Store.  I colored the grout with acrylic paint and this is the result.  Click on one of the pictures to learn more about this project!

 you might be able to do a smaller scale one, like on a thin piece of wood and then attach it to the wall. When we live in base housing we had a purple sponge painted wall, housing didn't care as long as we painted it back before we moved out.  In your case, you would just need to fill in the holes and do a little touch up....
