Default How Do You Attach Things To A Stucco Wall Without Using Nails

I have some beautiful Mexican pottery I want to hang on my patio walls, but the apartment complex doesn't allow us to drill nails in the walls. I can't figure how to hang them. I need some advice.

Found this info:

2)
Attaching items to stucco walls. The stucco on your home has been installed to stop water from penetrating into the wall. If incidental water does enter through the stucco, there is a weather resistant membrane (black paper) that has been installed behind the stucco. It is essential not to penetrate the stucco wall or the weather resistant membrane with nails, screws, staples or any other fastener. If it becomes necessary to mount something to the stucco walls, a professional craftsman should be hired in order to ensure that the proper fasteners are used.


Can you ask the apt management how to hand items on the wall?

What about the Command Strips from 3M? They do release without any damage.

Although, your pottery may be too heavy...

I was thinking Molly Screws since they are for weight bearing items and if you can't mount directly into a wall stud

Molly screw is a plastic thick screw sleeve thing that you put the metal screw into that distributes the load more outward so you have heavy load not on a wall stud. Also so you don't pull out a huge hole in the wall if it pulls out.

Do some searches on how to patch stucco and see if it is something you can do yourself and if the color you have can be matched. If you can on both of those questions hang the stuff and patch it when you leave.

It's an outside stucco wall? I think you're out of luck...there's no way to hang stuff on a wall without damaging the wall in some way. Have any of your neighbors hung stuff on the wall? Maybe check ou how they did it.

The only way I can think of is if it's a walled patio area, you could possible use those over-the-top door hangers and modify it somehow to the width of the wall:




There are free-standing hangers also:
