Those magic stick up thingies? I have been trying to hang my wall decorations for weeks now :( Drawing pins bend and Blue tack won't hold them.
I remember seeing an advert for these stick up strip type that can be removed easily after use.

If I was back in Wirral I would probably find them in TJ Hughes or similar type shop (Assuming I could remember the name lol )

Any ideas?

thread drift, now that some solutions have already been posted. . .

Are people here familiar with the story behind 3M's Scotch tape? (Why is it called Scotch tape?) I heard this when it came up on a quiz show.

I see no reason for a thread drift? The thread has been up a matter of hours, I have seen threads go on for days before being hijacked......................

I tried the double sided tape but the decs are pretty heavy so I used the padded double sided tape (like the ones used under a rug or similar). As I will be decorating after New Year it won't matter if it takes the paint etc off.

Put up picture rails, they are the best thing for holding all sorts of interesting hangy things.

The 3M product is quite good, have used these in rented places before we bought our own.
