Whether you are spending the holidays in a studio apartment or a college dorm room, there is no need to let smaller square footage put a damper on holiday decorations. True, you may not be able to shimmy a 9-foot fir tree into the corner of your living room, but there are plenty of festive, small-scale holiday decor ideas to help you celebrate in style.
Ornaments have long served as a simple way to add shimmer to a Christmas tree. For smaller spaces, where an elaborate tree may not be a feasible option, spread the sparkle around your home by filling bowls, vases and baskets with ornaments in various shapes and sizes.
Utilize wall space to display holiday cards from friends and family or to hang stockings when a fireplace mantle is nowhere to be found. Inexpensive seasonal wall art can be found at home stores across the country this time of year and is just what Santa ordered to put a little pep in your holiday step.
Decorate your doorstep. A simple wreath on your front door or a few decorations just outside your home puts guests in the holiday spirit, but also keeps the holiday clutter out of your home and out of your way.
