To mount round and irregularly shaped objects, use silicon rubber sealant. This is the same sun and freeze proof sealant used to caulk around windows and doors. It dries rubbery, clear and flexible, peels away cleanly and won’t stain.
Squeeze a dab onto the back of the item and nestle it into a crater you’ve gouged in the foamboard for this purpose. Cut a slit in the fabric covering the foamboard to allow access to the crater. When you need to remove the item, the rubber sealant can be peeled off the item cleanly.
