    We have a full glass in our front door so I seldom do anything for the door. Now with a 3yr old grandson I will put those clingy decorations on it. I have a pair of skates I hang from the light next to the door or on the deck support.

    I would love to hang wreaths on my doors, but I'm apprehensive due to any damage they may do (live in a rented house). Does anyone have suggestions on this area of decorating with minimal drilling/nails?

    I'll try and find some strong enough, the candy canes sound great

    They sell some heavy duty ones that will hold a wreath.

    Do you all have fresh wreaths? Or do you have artificial ones? Or both! I always aspire to have a beautifully decorated home for Christmas, but only end up with a couple of rooms done. I'm a novice in this.

    I have a giant deco mesh wreath I put on the storm door but I'm ready to find something different. The side door I hung a Mickey shaped wreath with lights. Not sure 8f I'll put it back or leave it hanging inside (where it is now lol)

    Upside down Command hooks on the back of the door. The wreath ribbon/string/cord will then go up and over the doorway and your wreath will hang from that. Another alternative is a wreath hanger - they make them pretty thin these days, plastic or metal.

    We do outside floods red and green on the house. I have an old sled with a wreath I made hanging on it that leans on the porch by the front door. Easy to set up, take down and store.

I also have a grapevine wreath with Christmas drcor and large twig angel I hang with command strips on each sIde of the picture window. I wish I had take a picture of it.

    I have use an artificial wreath with on the front door. I use a metal over the door wreath holder on our front door. It's great for rentals since it leaves no nail marks.
