I want to put a mirror on the back of my bedroom door but the door is hollow wood. Are there any alternatives to nails and screws?

get an over the top of the door wreath hanger and hang it from that with strong ribbon or wire

oth, if the mirror is too heavy it may make such a light door have problems shutting...

If it's a mirror made specifically to be hung, then it is pretty light-weight, right? At Walmart in the aisle where they sell these types of mirrors, they sell a really strong double-sided tape foam cuts. They work very well, although I'm not sure about any marks they may leave if you decide to remove the mirror.

I have a long leightweight mirror that I was able to nail to our hollow core bathroom door with some small picture-hanging nails. It works great and has been up for 5 years with no problems.

I would either do the over the door haner or Liquid Nails. Liquid Nails will hold up anything anywhere.

Double sided sticky velcro works great too.
