Use LARGE suction cups from Ace Hardware.

I have had much success with wreaths on my double-hung windows by using one finishing nail which is tapped into the center of the frame above the window and then tying a big loop of fishing line or even dental floss around the wreath and just hanging it from the nail. The nails stay in place from year to year and are not noticeable at all. Good luck!

Talk about a mold magnet when it rains. This looks like something you'd use for a parade of homes, a wkend or two, but not during the entire holiday season.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

If you haven’t decorated yet, don’t. Those bags and bags of gumdrops you bought to make miniature Christmas trees as a centerpiece? That mile of glittery ribbon just waiting to be wrapped around your banister and the rest of the house? What’s that? You forgot to buy the gumdrops and the ribbon? Rather than add them to the shopping list, just cross them off your to-do list. Let them go and any of the other things you wanted to do but, for whatever reason, didn’t. In our home we’re dealing with a few health issues, and this year the list of what I’m not doing for Christmas prep is longer than my to-do list. “Not this year” I keep telling myself, and no one in my family has missed the wreaths and candles in every window or anything else I’m skipping this season.
