Creative Holiday Decorating Ideas for Small Spaces

holiday_decorating_tips'Tis the season to transform your home into a winter wonderland! Yes, it's true. One very meaningful way we show our excitement and appreciation for the holiday season is through our home decor. It's a visually stimulating sign of happiness and love for the jolly season. But what happens when you don't have the room you need to really deck the halls? You've got to put your elf hat on and get creative!

Here are some simple, yet creative, decorating ideas that will allow you to spruce up your small space during the holiday season:

Raise the tree:

Sometimes fitting an 8 foot tree into the apartment or condo is just out of the question, but that shouldn't mean sacrificing the holiday spirit! Purchasing a small tree and raising it on a platform, such as a chair or tabletop is a great alternative to save floor space while commanding the presence of the room. Place the tree in a basket or raise it on a stool and view your tiny tree each day with pride!

Display cards on the wall:

You may not have all the room space in the world, but we can almost guarantee there are a few empty spaces on the walls where you can add some festive flair. The holiday cards you receive from family and friends in the mail can double as the perfect decor to hang on the wall. Use a ribbon to connect them in a row or tape them individually in a fun design. If you are feeling extra creative, add some handmade paper snowflakes to the mix and you've got a simple DIY holiday display.

Tree branches in a vase:

If a raised or tabletop tree is out of the question, think even smaller. Tree branches tucked into a vase is a stylish solution that will give you that rustic, tree look. If you can find thick, sturdy branches you can even add your favorite ornaments to give it the complete Christmas touch.

Hang ornaments and lights from the ceiling:

Chances are you have much more "free" space up high than down low. Ground space is precious and limited, but ceiling space is golden and ample. Hang some twinkling string lights from the ceiling and then you can easily tie lightweight ornaments for a classic holiday display.

Just because your square footage is limited, doesn't mean you can't deck the halls of your home! Have you tried one of these festive holiday decor solutions? Share the results with us below!
