Well Met all.
 Does this sound like a sound idea or should i rethink this and try to find another way?

Bright Blessings.

A few points that may help you out.  I have been looking all around for ideas as I shape and reshape my space.  And thinking of your problem I have thought of a couple applications.

First, if your walls are drywall, then all is good for hanging stuff.  (Plaster (old) chips, and hanging stuff is not really applicable.)

I'm thinking of a wall-mounted solution:
Walmart has some nice little wall mounted candle/misc holders for $5-10/pk of 2.  Takes 1 nail.  I got the wide based ones that will hold candles in glass, or vases of flowers.

Walmart also (I'm sure other stores have as well) an upright incense burner out of carved soapstone (around $8).

For the center of your wall altar (focal point) you might just pin up a picture, or framed art, or wreath.  Keep this light and only means 1 hole.  You might even find a wall mounted picture frame with a shelf attached to it already. 

Use the finish-nail metal hangers for the regular stuff( http://www.govart.com/hardware_hooks_A.html ), and use regular thin nails (1-1/2" long) with a larger flat head to mount the candle holders, place nail in the wall with point angled slightly down.  The landlord should have no problem with this, as it only takes a little tab of putty to patch the holes when you move out.

Other notes:  Tea lights work great, and if you need color you can find little glass colored holders.  I use them in my holders on the wall with small glass holders, as they flicker 'bird-wings' on my wall.

Other options: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5811441  I also have this fountain, the top of it is large enough to hold a candle, or statue.  Just be sure to use bottled water in any fountain.  The sound it makes is great for meditation.

Here are wall mount candle options: http://www.onlinediscountmart.com/wall-candle-holders.html  Walmart has a few of these, a little bit cheaper.  Target and others might have similar.

For altar tools, you might look around at places like Target, Walmart, K-mart for a slim, tall mini cabinet to go under your altar, or simple get a plastic bin to slip them under the bed when not in use (simply wrap the items in cloth).

Finally,
I would NOT use any sticky tape to mount hangers as it will rip the paint/wall when you try to remove it and end up with a repair bill.
Put away the candles when you are not going to be home, if the landlord sees them out he might freak!

I have installed and repaired drywall and have worked for apartment owners in repairs and make-readies.  A few simple pin-holes in the wall, that you can easily patch upon move-out will not cause any concern.

Good luck and hope it helpes!
