Putting up a ~4 x 7ft poster by myself, without ruining it or the wall

– Oh hackers of life! I have a 4’ x 7’ World Map poster I want to hang on my wall. The prob is that I do not have anyone local who can help me to put it up. And so I wanted to know if there’s a life hack for putting up **enormous** posters by yourself.

I *would guess* it’s a question of something like :

1. using a pencil, sketch a horizontal line on the wall where the top of the poster will go
2. place poster face down on floor
3. stick 6 (or whatever) adhesive pads (e.g. large command strips) along the poster’s top edge ***OR*** alternatively on the wall, just beneath the line in pencil
4. take a top corner of the poster and stick it to the wall
5. whilst still pressing/holding the top corner in place, put the next adhesive pad in place
6. repeat until all pads are stuck to the wall
7. the poster should be hanging now so just add 6 (or whatever) adhesive pads along the bottom of the poster and stick them to the wall
8. have a cup of tea and marvel at the World

The step that worries me the most, and which I see going horribly wrong, is step 5. I envisage that the millisecond I stop pressing the first pad against the wall (so that I can work on the second pad), it’ll all come tumbling down, literally resulting in the end of the World. Which would be bad.

See the pic for the wall and where I plan to put the poster for context (I’m not sure this is of use but you never know). The surface is painted plaster that’s in good shape.

Any tips & tricks and even… life hacks would be so welcome – I’ve had this poster rolled up for 3 years now!
