Looking to get into the holiday spirit, but worried that your small space can’t handle the decorations? Here are some holiday decorating ideas for small spaces:
1. Miniature trees:
If you’re main living space cannot handle a traditional tree, opt for a smaller miniature tree. Depending on the size of the home, you can get a ready-made mini-tree, or buy a tree top and decorate it with your favorite ornaments. It can also be the base for all your gifts too.
2. Use your tables:
Creating a centerpiece for the holidays is one of the easiest ways to add a festive spirit to your home. Use candles, cinnamon sticks, candles and roses to instantly add a holiday theme to the room.
3. Use your walls:
If a mini-tree doesn’t work for you, you can always use the walls to add some decorations. Be it a make-shift tree or stockings, the addition on your wall is a great way to decorate a small space for the holidays.
4. Make a window display:
Similar to your walls, you can also decorate your windows with ornaments and even spray some snow, which will not only give you a festive spin, but will make your home seem like a winter wonderland!
5. Use your furniture:
Do you have bookshelves? Hang some ornaments on there. No space for a wreath? Hang one a side table or window.
6. Try and make some room:
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Try swapping some of your regular photo frames, figurines or accessories with some festive-themed decorations.
7. Decorate your door:
The door to you apartment or room can easily double as a decorating space. You can add ornaments, a wreath and even some stockings.
8. Use items you already have:
Do you have a lamp that you can hang ornaments from? Or a bowl that you can add decorate? How about a hook? You already have these items at home, so why not adorn them?
9. It’s all about color:
The colors you add to your home this time of year play a huge role in creating a festive motif. Playing on green, red and white items will easily help you in decorating your home.
10. Display gifts:
One of the easiest ways to add a festive feel to your home is by displaying gifts, whether under the mini tree or by themselves in a corner. And if you don’t want to reveal the gifts just yet, you can wrap empty shoeboxes for the same effect.
