Small Space Decor For The Holidays

Those of us living in small homes have to sometimes think outside of the box when decorating for the holidays. I’ve found some creative ways to add small space decor for your holiday home.

Frame It:

Just look at this frame of ornaments on ribbons. How very creative! This would be an easy craft and you could set or lean it most anywhere in any room of your home.

Filled With Ornaments:

If you happen to own a lamp base that you can put things inside, think about adding pretty sparkly ornaments for Christmas time.

They’ll look even more decorative when the lamp is turned on. 

Wall Of Plates:

We’re quite familiar with going vertical in small spaces.
This arrangement of red and white plates on the wall, with a little holiday cheer spelling out JOY in the center, will make people smile when they walk into your home.

It looks especially pretty with a buffet table just below it for a party or family event.

Pillow Of Cheer:

If you’re a sewer, consider sewing up a fun pillow of full of words for the holiday season.
You could stuff the pillow or make a pillow cover so you could switch it out after the holidays.

Mirror It:

We know that mirrors are our friend in small spaces. But utilizing them for Christmas decor takes it one step further. 

This glam gold ornament wreath looks especially pretty hanging on the mirror. The gold wreath will be reflected back into the room.

Christmas ornaments can be utilized in so many ways. Of course you can put them on your tree. But you can also make a wreath and fill bowls with them.

I’ve had to start getting unbreakable ornaments due to having pets and being a bit clumsy!

  1. Cool ideas. I live in a smallish condo with no floor space to speak of to put anything other than the necessities. At Christmas it is always a challenge to find a space to put the tree. I could do away with the tree and get a mini one or a "tree like" plant I saw one rosemary bush that looks like a Christmas tree wrapped at the bottom in red sparkly cellphone. I'm thinking of getting that for a friend. But one could have a mini tree and put it on some precious flat space. Every year I put a wreath hanging from my fireplace mantel, one on the dining room mirror and one on the wall by the patio doors. I also hang something sparkly from the light fixture in my dining room and on the inside of my apartment door. Other than that I decorate the mantle and a smallish tree (4'5"). Maybe next year I ditch the tree and get a mini one.Happy Holidays!
