Handymen & Women-- I'm Stumped

    My dad is the handiest person I know, and even he cannot help me with this.

    How do I hang a 36" wreath on a vertical surface on the front of my house?

    The surface is wood, and I don't want to put a nail in it.

    PLEASE HELP, smart people!

    Don't they make metal hooks that fit over the top of the door? I'm sure I've seen them.

    Found this on Yahoo Answers: They sell hooked brackets that hang over the top of the door, but they can scratch / gouge the door if it's close-fitting to the frame. They also sell a set of two super-strong magnets, one of which has a hook for the wreath, but they only work thru single-thickness glass.
    At my last apartment, I tied two pieces of fishing line (about 2 inches apart) near the top of the wreath, ran them over the top of the door & down the inside of the door. I was able to hook them over the peephole.

    It's not for a door. It's for a surface on the side of my house. Think: Open spot on house that has no windows that would be PERFECT for a wreath! :)

    What about something like fishing line strung from the roof where you can pound a nail or two in and nobody will see it?

    Fishing line from the second floor?

    What is above the wreath?
  8. 3m makes these sticky hooks.
    We hang the kids backpacks and coats on them 10 pounds plus..

    There is also blue putty stuff that sticks to surfaces and adheres to things. Might be called blue stick.

    I'm not sure i trust a sticky hook because people walk under it. Fishing line attached to the roof somehow... that might work. Thanks folks.

    That would swing around pretty good in the wind, though, wouldn't it?

    Celebrate Festivus instead; no wreaths needed.
