    You can get a two by four and varnish it and hang it on the wall and string photo hanging wire on it for the ribbons. I usually hung mine on looped cord hanging from the ends of my wall shelves. A thing flat piece of cardboard works okay too, but it gets raged over time.

    chicken wire works great if you dont mind the look of it until you get it all covered up

    get a roll of picture hanger wire and some hooks. picture hanger wire comes in larger rolls, strong doesn't need to be huge, eye screw in one corner go to wherever you want on the other wall, stretch wire and hang ribbons by the hooks on back of ribbons, my room was covered wall to wall and across the ceiling. no failure problem even with tons of chanmpion large ribbons on them. easy and cheap

    Another idea - Pins, like stick pins... they leave little to no damage to wall AND easy to hang up anywhere!

    As Tacky as it sounds my sister hung hers with Twine, It looked really good in a countryish themed room.
