Martha Stewart Living, December 2010

Sometimes it's what you don't see that really counts. Suspend your holiday wreath from the top of the door frame and avoid making unsightly holes. Cut a 3-inch-wide satin or grosgrain ribbon long enough, when doubled, to hang wreath at the desired height. Loop ribbon around back of wreath form. Join ends, and fold them over 1/2 inch. Secure to top of door with thumbtacks. 


This technique is great for mirrors, too: Hang a wreath in front of the glass, and tack the hanger behind the frame.
