Ok, this isn't exactly a craft project but, it's a project so, here is my predicament.
Yesterday, i bought this great (and HUGE) vintage tablecloth from ragstock for only a couple dollars.  Well, I really want to put it up on my wall, it'd be soo cool.  Problem is, I don't know HOW.  Occureding to my dad, i have very hard walls and plus, he hates pocking holes in the wall.  I was thinking staple gun it but he said that wouldn't work.  So anyways, any ideas?

If the table cloth isn't too heavy, you could use the sticky-backed velcro to hang it! Stick it all the way around the cloth, the soft side (you may want to put a few stitches in it just in case). Then put the hard side of the velcro on the wall. You could even put a screw or 2 in the velcro on the wall to hold it on, but the sticky should work on it's own.

Hope that helped, a friend of mine in a Fibers class suggested it!

You could always try sewing some smallish jump rings (like for key chains) across the top and using those little cup screw thingies and hanging it from that.  I've used that sort of thing in the past and it works.  The little cup thingies screw right into the wall.

you can try starching the thing to the wall if it is relatively light.  I think I saw directions for that somewhere on this site but I'm not sure.  I'll look for the directions I have somewhere around here.

When you dim your light to let someone else shine...the whole world gets a little bit darker.
