I know there are tons of threads on records and record bowls, which is great! But I have fallen in love with the covers of some old records and I wanna put them on my wall.... but I dont know what to attatch them with? Something that won't ruin my walls... Sticky Tak doesn't work Sad I tried it. They fell off within an hour, much to my disappointment. I was thinking maybe velcro would be cool since I would be able to change around the order. But if you guys have tryed velcro on walls or have a much better idea please help me out!

I have records all over my walls! My room's a 1960-1970-ish theme, so I have records hung up EVERYWHERE! I use thumbtacks like these:

I slip one in the sleve (with the record already taken out) and put it in the far top corner. Then I put one in th top closer corner. They only make TINY holes, and they stick to regular walls. Oh, and using the same tacks through the hole in a record keeps them tacked up, too.

Using these tacks don't ruin the walls or the record cover if you know where you want to put it and don't scrape it against the wall. Check to see if the tacks will hole in your wall by going down on the ground and sticking the tack where the wall meets the carpet. Try a few places that are down low or out of plain sight, because they may stick easier in some places than others.

Hope I helped!

if you want to do this in a more classy way, you can get record sized frames. I know urbn.com has them, so do many other stores if you just google...I see them in record stores sometimes too.
