you mean plaster ceiling medallions? those round flat decorate plates that chandeliers hang from the center of?

i thought they were adhered with Liquid Nails (construction adhesive) and a few finish nails to hold it up til the glue set.

did yours fall down right away or after a few minutes? is your ceiling nice & smooth? maybe it's got a greasy/dirt build up on it that's preventing the glue from adhering?? ( - just guessing offense! ) if so, try washing the area well with TSP or some sort of de-greaser first.
