How to Add Christmas Decors in Small Spaces
Don’t be disheartened if you can’t fit a full size Christmas tree or giant inflatable Santa in your small unit because there are other ways on how you can brighten up your own home just in time for the holiday season. Try to see the positive side of having a small space such as less expense on decors and less time to fix up your place. Do you know that Americans will spend a whopping $6 billion on Christmas decorations, including LED lights, 16-foot-tall inflatable Santas, and pre-decorated Christmas trees? This statistic was based on a survey conducted by the National Retail Federation in 2011, which has been tracking this information since 2005.
If you just imagine how much money you will save up on Christmas decors, then you may end up feeling thankful for living in a small apartment. Instead of leaving your home dull this holiday season, why not let the Christmas spirit fill up your room by adding simple yet attractive decors? Here are some Christmas decorating tips for small spaces:
Miniature Christmas Tree
There are decorated miniature Christmas trees sold in department stores, but you can also create your own. You can either use an artificial miniature tree or bonsai tree such as those from Bonsai Boy of New York; then decorate that with Christmas lights. Quality Christmas lights bring out the festive vibe in any ordinary object as seen in the annual Oxford Street Christmas Lights which was once hosted by retail giant M&S. You can also add some whimsical ornaments on your table top tree.
Give your bookshelf and cupboards a makeover this holiday season by decorating with Christmas figurines like Santas, elves, snowmen, and reindeers. There are different Christmas collectibles available at Bronners. You can also add some scented candles in colors of red and green on the shelves.
Instead of using large wreaths, you can use small wreathes to decorate your home. Aside from attaching a wreath on your door, you can also hang them in certain places. According to Better Homes and Garden, you can hang a mini wreath with a velvet or satin ribbon from shelves or drawer pulls.
There’s no set of rules when it comes to Christmas decorations so have fun while doing it and let your creativity flow.
