My lanai area serves as our party dance floor and it always looks so plain. I dye the pool red and hang things from the pool screen but my walls always look so plain because I have yet to discover anything that sticks to stucco. I have tried to Gorialla Tape scene setters to the walls but they fall down. If anyone has any other ideas on how to spook up a lanai with stucco walls --- I would love to hear from you.

our house is stucco and all I find is spider webs that stick. You could find some tall broken branches, stick them in pots, and make them creepy with creepy cloth and lights.

we use these little tacky double stick squares that come in a roll. You can find them at Wal-Mart in the sewing section orat Michaels. They work great.

The are called "dashes" at least the ones I have purchased from save-on-crafts.com
But be warned - they are a tough to remove.
Matrixmom -- I use those for everything but never tried them outside. When you remove them did it take paint with it?

After reading the OP I immediately thought of spider webbing. If you have a somewhat rough stucco on your house the tips of it tend to act like natural velcro.

B Scary, do you have a wooden eave above the wall that is easily accessible with a short ladder? I'm thinking either attaching a few hooks into the wood that would allow you to more or less suspend a "clothesline" along the span and then attach "scenery drapery" to that line. My hubby doesn't want me drilling or nailing into our wood eaves so last year i picked up some large tension clamps from Harbor Freight that will firmly hold onto the wooden beams supporting our garage eaves and gutter. I figure I'll try doing a similar clothesline appraoch attached to the clamps and if I keep the scenery panel really light weight the hope is that it will suspend it with no problems. These clamps take quite a bit of hand pressure to open in order to slip onto the wood beam and the grip is really tight after you release it so I think it could work but haven't done a setup at the garage yet. If it does work it would avoid screwing or pounding in hardware to anchor the clothesline to.
