This Old House: Nail-Free Decorating Tools

Holiday decorating can be invasive — rearranging furniture to make room for a tree, gifts, candles and the like — but there's no reason to put new holes in your walls. Especially for renters, the fewer nail holes in the walls the better. The new issue of This Old House has a great shopping guide to nail-free holiday decorating and we're sharing a few of our favorite no-nail solutions after the jump...

This was our favorite nail-free solution in the bunch. Its called the Brick Clip and it comes in 3 sizes for different brick types, each holding up to 25 lbs. Just make sure your grout is set back a minimum of 1/8" from the brick face. These would also come in handy for those with exposed brick walls to hang art, year round. $12 for 6

For hanging garland on a banister, mantle or outside on a porch, the Garland Grabber comes in various sizes at $9 for 10.

Command Decorating Clips are the perfect remedy for stringing up lights without damaging your walls. They only come in white so they would look best hidden along white trim or on a light colored wall. $5 for 20

Command Classic Metal Hooks are great for hanging holiday pieces that will leave the hook visable. $11 each
