What do with small hole

I have a small hole patched with rubbery sealant right next to my door. The PO was going to put an emblem over it. It is about 3.5 inches long. I could patch it but it is right next to the door and noticeable. I could install a matching porch light (a foot light?) or an emblem plate. Thoughts?

while you're making up your mind, go to a sign shop and have them make a vinyl stick on sign for you. Examples:
  • don't tread on me
  • if the trailer's rocking, don't come knocking
  • Martha Stewart does NOT live here
  • No shoes inside please
  • Or a map outline of W.Virginia (or the state of your choice) "Almost Heaven"
  • a map outline of the state of your choice "It ain't the end of the world, but you can see it from here"

Have fun with it, it won't be your last.

Paula

Great ideas Paula! You can also make a cool shape like a star or heart or the shape if your home state out of aluminum and rivet it over the hole. Or add a doorbell or a cool light or a Wally Byam sticker!

How small is it? Would a large-headed rivet hide it?

You can also use a stick on reflector.
