How Do You Hang A Door Decor Without Nails?

When hanging your decor without nails, it’s important to choose a method that is appropriate for the weight and size of your decor.

If you have a magnetic door, you can use magnetic hooks to hang your decor. These hooks come in different sizes and strengths, and they can easily attach to the metal surface of the door.

One option is to use adhesive hooks, which are designed to stick to walls without damaging the surface. These hooks come in a variety of sizes and strengths, so you can choose the one that is best for your decor’s weight and size.
