Hanging pictures on a stucco wall

I want to put some artwork up on the stucco walls on my porch without drilling holes. (it's a rental) I've tried heavy duty velcro, and several command products to no avail. We live in Florida and the humidity eventually makes them fall. Any other ideas?

    If the ceiling has a smooth texture, you might try hanging from there either with the command hooks or a cup hook. The cup hooks are small and don't leave large holes. The small holes are easily plugged after removal. Hang your artwork with ribbon for added color. :)

    You could try straight pins too if it is not too heavy. They do not leave a noticeable mark.

    Try command strips by 3M

    Command strip seem to only work on very smooth surfaces...and humidity makes it worse.

    I too was going to see if hanging from the ceiling was an option. Depending on the distance between the two adjacent walls, a tension rod?

    Hi. You might want to consider picture hanging hooks. They are called monkey hooks. You can get them at Lowes. They look like the lower case j. Have used several of them. They work great. Can hold up to 5 lbs.

    You made a hanging picture with two pieces of stained wood and stapled a blk and white photo. I cant find it and i would like to make one. Can you resend it to me.

    I would put the picture on a bookcase of a table, stucco walls are notorious for dropped items even with command hooks, just not enough to grab onto.
