Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year and your small apartment has to look the part. But your home has no room for a Christmas tree or massive decors, don’t worry! You can still dress up your space for the holidays using simple decors. Don’t let the limited space put a damper on your Christmas spirit, here are simple ways of spreading holiday cheer to your interiors:
Christmas Collection Display
If your home does not have enough surface area for your Christmas tree train display, here’s a happy compromise: curate your Christmas decors and group them together in a festive tray. Place the tray on a table or any available surface and you have a lovely Christmas décor that doesn’t take up much room.
Arranging small Christmas items together makes the décor look uniform too. Since the tray isn’t taking much space, you can create several of these displays to dress up naked surfaces and blank spots all over the home!
Wreaths and Garlands
Deck out bookcases, display cases, doors, and cabinets with wreaths and garlands! These Christmas decors are a cinch to install and they don’t take much room at all. The best part? Wreaths and garlands add a cheerful vibe to the dreariest of spaces.
For most people, Christmas isn’t complete without a decked out tree and I feel the same way! But living with 3 cats, having a giant tree in the living room is out of the question. My cat babies can murder a tree in seconds! But this didn’t stop us from putting a mini Christmas tree in the living room. Well, it’s not really a tree, more like fallen or cut greenery placed in a vase and jazzed up with tinsel but it’s better than nothing!
If your home has zero room for a traditional Christmas tree, snip greenery from the backyard. Place the branch in a decorative vase and set it on any available surface in the living room. Decorate the greenery with Christmas ornaments, ribbons, garlands, etc. Finish up by arranging gifts under it and voila, your mini Christmas “tree” is complete!
Tabletop Christmas Tree
Apart from making your own Christmas tree using cut greenery, you can also get a tabletop artificial trees. It makes the perfect tabletop display because an artificial miniature tree is compact yet striking. You can also re-use the tree every year!
Again, just decorate a small artificial tree with Christmas ornaments then finish up by arranging gifts under it to spread the holiday cheer! Put the tree on display in the living room, in a corner, or naked surfaces that you’d like to define.
Make the most out of the blank overhead spaces in your home by hanging cardstock snowflakes! No need to hammer away for a good hanging spot.
Attach a string on each cardstock snowflake, grab a ladder, and hang these decors on the ceiling using tape for easy installation and removal!
You don’t need a mantle to hang Christmas decors. Doorknobs are great spots for hanging seasonal ornaments of all kinds. If your small apartment lacks a good spot for hanging Christmas stocking, go ahead and drape the stockings from the door knobs.
This way, you can put your Christmas stockings on display without damaging the walls with hooks or nails. The same thing goes for wreaths and garlands, you can hang them from the doorknobs to dress your space for the holidays!
Love scented candles? With a little creativity, you can create a centerpiece using candles, pinecones, and pine needles! Try grouping scented candles in different sizes and tucking several pinecones in the arrangement. Put your creation on display in the center of your coffee table or dining table.
You can also attach pine needles on scented candles using a little twine to create a rustic centerpiece. Cut the twine and tie it around the scented candle. Then insert the pine needles and you’re done!
Decorate several scented candles, group them together in the center of the table and you’re ready to fill your home with glorious festive fragrance for the holiday!
String Some Lights
Set the mood, give your home a warm glow using string lights! I love decorating with string lights because they are so versatile and they don’t take much room at all.
You can string Christmas lights in the living room, bedroom, and even the dining room. You can also use string lights to frame the windows or doors to add a festive flair to the home.
Dressed Up Chairs
take your furniture decor a notch higher by jazzing up the chairs with small Christmas decors. Try hanging a mini wreath to your dining chairs using ribbons! These compact holiday decors won’t get in the way + they’re so easy to make!
Christmas Coat Rack
Welcome holiday merriment in the home by decorating your mudroom coat track with colorful garlands! This is a great decorating trick for small homes with zero hanging spots.
Just drape your decors on the coat rack or key hooks for an instant burst of seasonal fun!
