attaching pennants to the wall

Posted by wearybuilder (My Page) on

We are in the process of redecorating our son's room, and he wants sports stuff everywhere. We finally agreed on how we would do "the change" but I'm stuck about how to affix mini-pennants to the wall. We've got about a zillion of them from the various types of sports, so they will be going all around the room. Any ideas? Seems like it should be do-able without making me crazy, but I'm all idea'd out! LOL

Just use 3M command strips. They are sold everywhere, office supply stores, hardware stores, target....

I would use very small nails.

I did my son's room with the pennants & used a tot stapler! it was easy & when you repaint it's simple, paint fills in the tiny holes!

We used colored thumb tacks for my sons pennants, flags and sails. They usually just blended in with the color of the flag.

My son has several autographed jerseys that he wanted hung...dh used the stapler! It was awesome...and when we repositioned one, the hole was almost invisible...I am sure paint alone would cover it.
