Need to stick stuff to brick without drilling

User Rating: / 0
I have fake Christmas garland with lights, and I need to stick it to brick without drilling. The methods I've tried so far are failing me. After my a previous question, I have attempted to create a two-dimensional Christmas tree out of fake pre-lit garland that looks something like this. I have a brick wall where I have hung it, and I cannot drill into it (renter). Methods I have tried thus far:

1) Sticky velcro--worked for a little while but has since failed.

2) Various command hooks, but those are even worse.

3) Fluted masonry nails, which wouldn't go in at all and probably would have caused just as much damage as drilling.

4) Tacks. Just no. Epic fail.

The bricks are mostly flush with the mortar so I cannot use brick clips.

What the hell else can I do to keep this hung up without drilling?
