Default straightening out canvas frame

a couple of my paintings are on warped canvases. Anyone know how to rig them so they hang well on the wall? I don't have time to frame or restretch - just want them to be flat for upcoming show. Thanks!

Attach a piece of double sided tape at each corner and fix to wall.

I would suggest using double sided tape providing the wall has a firm surface such as gloss paint. The tape would not damage the back of the canvas on removal.
