Start by placing a ruler flat against the wall and drawing a line using the pencil.  My heights vary for each design around my room so it doesn't look monotonous. This one I made a little over a foot.

(Sorry for the blur!) To make the diamond shape, I went slightly off the side of the line to make a triangle shape. Repeat with the top, making sure they connect.

I'm not an artist or great at geometrical shapes without using a ruler, but I managed to make decent diamonds, even if the angle isn't perfect. It looks good to me!

This is probably near impossible to see, but I don't want to put marker on the wall, so... You should repeat the previous steps until you hit the ceiling.  You now have an outline!

This is a crappy piece of tape, but just follow the lines when placing the duct tape.  You may or may not need to cut some edges so the design doesn't look weird.
