We want to hang the baby’s quilt/blanket on the wall behind the crib, but don’t want it to wreck the blanket. I keep thinking something like binder clips, that we can hammer 2-3 nails into the wall and then clip on the blanket.

I actually just did this, not with a baby blanket, but with a blanket I wanted to hang up without ruining.
I took an old t-shirt, cut short (2 inch?) strips of cloth, and folded them lengthwise so that they were all a uniform width. I then took each strip, folded it in half to create a loop, and sewed it by hand onto the top edge of the blanket. I did this with 3 strips, so that there was a row of loops sewn into the top of the blanket (mine was narrow–you may need more loops). I bought a dowel from the hardware store and ran it through the loops, tied a piece of twine to the dowel, and hung the twine on a nail. I tried to sew the loops on in such a way so as to not damage the blanket too much, and so that the stitches could be removed.

I would suggest using a curtain rod and curtain clips That way you don’t have to sew or puncture the blanket in any way, and it’s easy enough to take down when you want to.

If you use curtain clips remember to use a bit of thin foam between the blanket and the clip so the clips don’t leave permanent marks on the blanket.

I would second curtain clips. I would check out Young House Love because they use them a lot because it makes the curtains kid friendly. AKA if a kid pulls on the curtain or blanket, the fabric will just release from the clips rather than pulling the whole curtain rod from the wall.

We used a curtain rod and clothes pins, lol. Curtain clips sounds like a good idea, though.

I got some custom quilt clips from etsy, and they are super cute.
Mine aren’t shown here, but I got them to match my ocean themed bedding.

@kitzy: I did a search and found that, too, but I don’t really want to do any sewing 🙂
@kiddosc: Those are pretty clips! I’ll definitely look for something like that.
@cannotwait: Those are cute! I bet I could make something like this with clothespins though…hmmmmmmmmm…
