    Hello, Command strips make a broom and mop clip that should hold your branch nicely. Just put it on the wall side ways.

    I'm not a fan of command hooks. With that being said, I am a renter also. I have purchased painter's wall patch and have used it for thirty years. It comes in a small plastic container. Whenever you take a wall hanger off a wall, use your finger and fill the hole. Wait a half hour, lightly sand if needed (usually never needed) and using a tiny brush, touch up with the corresponding wall paint. Whenever I paint a wall, I keep a repurposed glass jar filled with each wall paint color so I can do wall repair simply if ever needed. To hang the branch inself, pre-drill a hole in the branch in two different places. If it's heavy, pre-drill holes and install wall anchors in the wall, and then use a wood screw long enough to go thru the branch and into the wall anchor. Then use the painter's patch to cover up the holes in the tree branch and paint it to match the branch. I'm including a photo of my branch I've had up for years. It's been dried forever so it's very light. I didn't need an anchor for this, believe it or not.
