Decorating Cinder Block Walls

I need ideas for hanging chiffon on my daughter's dormitory cinder block walls. I can not make any holes or permanent marks. I wanted to drape some chiffon on one wall to give the room some color and personality.

I would try 3M Command Adhesive Mounting Products as a way to secure the chiffon to the wall. They also have decorating clips which would allow you to string lights and poster strips for... well... posters! Their website suggests that they will work on Cinder Block without damaging the surface.

How about sticky backed velcro? Though, I too, have used the 3M products and think they are really great!

I agree with the suggestion for the "Command" adhesive products. My daugher has had great success with them--and each package will tell you how many pounds that particular hook (or clip, etc.) will hold. She swears by them!
