Do you have any suggestions for non-seasonal apartment door decor?

What can I add to my apartment door that is NOT distastefully preppy, hideous, ghetto fabulous, arrives with an invisible "steal me" voice, or requires a million screw holes? I never thought that I would struggle to come up with a decorating idea! But I am. I like colorful, but minimalist designs, but otherwise I am open-minded. Feel free to post links to galleries of door decor(not pinterest unless it's a specific diy), photos or make suggestions based on your own projects. Sometimes a touch of inspiration is all that's needed.

My landlord is "ok" with anything as long as it does not create a gigantic hole in the door.
I do not want someone to be able to steal it, whatever it is. No one stole my $20 dollar Christmas wreath, but then again it was made of bells. Someone would hear it being stolen. Perhaps I could incorporate bells into a non-seasonal design? It's not a high crime area, but there are passers through who stole a package from a porch recently.

I can be vaguely creative and am open to painting items. The walkway is bland, dingy and hideous--perhaps my door decor could brighten it up? My budget is <50 dollars. I am tired of the bland door, my apartment has a few Van Gogh prints, cartoon animal illustrations, rustic kitsch, floral photography throughout. Currently I have birds, fish and cats incorporated into my decorating scheme.
I could get a doormat, but I can't shell out even $10 for a rando to snatch it away. If there were a way to secure the doormat and not ruin the vinyl I would be open to getting a decent one.
So, suggestions? I decorate and craft when I'm stressed out.
