I've tried do a search & can't find what I'm looking for.

How do you hang your hoops on the wall?
We live in a rental & we aren't allowed to put hooks or nails in the wall. I really want to put my hoops up but have no idea on what to do

I think OGD posted in one of the hoopla swap discussions (or pre swap threads) that she was using those sticky hooks to hang hers. The kind made by 3m(?) and are removable and movable.

Wouldn't you be able to see those 3M hooks on the wall though?
I always thought that I would use velcro dots to hang them up.
The hoops are light weight, and I'm sure the dot that is applied
to the wall would come off easily with a straight razor/blade.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

That's what I was thinking. Those strips with hooks that come off. I've seen them advertised at Christmas for stockings.

I used the poster weight 3M stickers, no actual hooks needed for the hoops because they are too big. I cut them in half length ways and put one half on either side of the hoop. These worked fine.

Until I tried to take them down...they ripped the paint off of my walls.  Undecided

Now, this very well could be due the fact that my paint is oooold or the type of paint that was used, but I'd test a hoop before hanging an entire wall.

I have decided to rehang my wall using straight pins rather than nails. The holes would be so tiny that no one will notice them when I take it down. Smiley

Thanks for your replies everyone. I saw some 3m poster tape, it uses the same stickers but with a velcro type thing instead of a hook, so I might get some of those & some alcohol wipes to prep the wall

Generally try to stay away from anything that adheres to the wall.  They always strip the paint or, in some cases, the drywall.

Try poster putty.  Finish the back of your hoop with some fancy paper, then tack it on the wall with poster putty.  It won't strip anything and it holds pretty well.

I did like Trouble T and have used sewing pins to hang things up. You can't see the holes and they work surprisingly well.

Even though you are in a rental I can give you a great tip for using small little nails if your walls are white.
Using the skinny little nails you can buy pretty much anywhere you can of course just hang the hoop by the screwy part and you won't see it.
When it comes time to move carefully remove the nails and smear a tiny bit of white toothpaste in the hole. After it dries you will never see the hole.

Also works if you use a bar of soap and rub it against the wall where the hole is.
