Generally those wires lead to a molding;
which don't involve holes at all.

Movable hooks travel along the molding
and support the wires.
These systems allow for placement at any height
and anywhere along the "hanging molding.

one of many such systems

It's also very easy, and inexpensive,
to use a wood molding and simple hooks and picture wire.
