How do you hang a balloon garland without damaging walls?
I can make a balloon wall and also a long balloon banner made of 28 sets of 4 balloon clusters. But I am not sure how to attach these to the wall. Can you help?
To attach single balloon clusters or flowers to the wall I normally recommend removable glue dots.
For a larger balloon garland as you have in mind, you need to use something stronger. You also have to consider how to hang the balloon garland without damaging walls.
If there are no pre-existing hooks or other fixtures in the wall or ceiling, use removable, non-damage hooks like these 3M Command Hooks.
Choose between clear (blend best with all types of wall colors) or white hooks.
There are also different sizes. To be on the safe side, I recommend you select hooks that hold up at least 3 pounds of weight (1200 g).
If you're decorating outdoors, use outdoor rated, water- and UV-resistant mounting hooks, like these Command Outdoor Light Clips.
They can be used on sealed, smooth outdoor surfaces including doors, flat vinyl siding, soffits, finished fences, tile, painted cinder block and windows.
They might work on bricks but only if the bricks are painted and smooth, as the adhesive doesn't bond with porous surfaces.
You typically need two to three hooks for attaching a garland to the wall, depending on the shape you want to create.
