Just wondering how hard stucco really is. Wonder if regular drill bit might work. Small bits not that expensive, might be worth a try and report results back to forum.

Oh, forgot about that. Go with the carbide tip then. If you can borrow drill that has hammer-action, that would go faster.

you might want to investigate epoxy or the 3m hooks that attach with an adhesive backing. Drilling a hole in stuco for light weight decorations seems overkill to me. Try Ace, Lowes or HD.
