Decorate Your Apartment for the Holidays

The holiday season is finally here! Baking cookies, sipping cocoa and watching holiday movies are activities we wait for all year long. Of course, we can’t forget about decorating the house! Nothing puts you more in the spirit than string lights, holly, and the scent of pine. For some inspiration, check out these tips on how to decorate your apartment for the holidays!

Seasons Greetings

Every year, the mailbox is flooded with the holiday cards of friends, neighbors, and family. If you have an overload of cards in the mail, why not use them as decor? Hang up your holiday cards on the wall or on a window. All season long, you will be reminded of people you care about.

Work With What You Have

You don’t have to take up space when you use items you already have! Once the holiday season rolls around, switch your typical plates and mugs with holiday-themed ones. Place a holiday doormat outside your door instead of the one you use year-round. Additionally, instead of your usual hand towels and throw pillows, you can also find holiday-themed ones. Fill your apartment with the holiday spirit, while working with a small space!

Wreaths All Around

Who says wreaths can only be used outside? Decorate around your apartment with small wreaths. Whether you hang them on shelves, drawers or your wall, wreaths don’t take up much space but put you right in the spirit. Additionally, if they are real, they will fill the apartment with a fresh pine scent!

Get Creative with the Tree

If you want to decorate with a Christmas tree but worry you don’t have space, there are plenty of other options! Lots of stores sell mini Christmas trees, that are perfect for small spaces. If you don’t have anywhere to put a small Christmas tree, you can also create one on the wall. Outline the shape of a Christmas tree on your wall with string lights or any other objects you can think of. Now is your time to get creative!

Display Candy

Everyone loves when they walk into someone’s home and there is a candy jar. Become one of those homes! Fill up mason jars or bowls with holiday candy. M&Ms, Reese’s, Kit Kats and more all have special, limited-time holiday wrapping. Of course, you can always use candy canes as decor as well! Decorate your apartment with sweet treats that certainly will not go to waste.

With these tips, you are ready to decorate your apartment for the holidays! Although working with a smaller space seems tough, there are plenty of ways to work around it. In fact, you’ll feel extra cozy this holiday season. Happy holidays!
