No doubt, decorating a smaller apartment for the holidays can be tricky.

There are many ways to safely add holiday cheer into your apartment without taking up valuable space! Read on to learn more!

Christmas Tree Ideas for Smaller Spaces

The main idea that comes to mind for most people while decorating for Christmas is the tree. For safety and convenience, an artificial tree is the ideal way to go in an apartment space. Luckily, there great options out there. To conserve some space, opt for a compact tabletop version that can be displayed on any surface. If you wish to have that evergreen smell, then there are other alternatives for Christmas tree ideas. You could get creative with some greenery. Try to reuse command hooks from windows covering drape garland around your door frames, mirrors, and windows.

You could also make your own tabletop centerpiece by using sprigs of pine, holly, eucalyptus, and pine cones. Just add a bit of flameless tea light candles from the fall decorating to make that beautiful holiday glow. Fill up decorative vases with some fragrant greenery and place them all throughout your apartment. If you need some more inspiration, then ask your neighbors!

Other Holiday Decorations for a Small Apartment

Twinkle lights are a staple for holiday decorating too. For a festive, bright touch that will take up next to no space, hang up lights from the ceiling or drape them around your doorways. Line up your cabinets, television stand, patio or balcony, or anywhere else that might use an extra glow. Holiday cards can be used and displayed throughout your apartment too. Attach them to some lights or garland around your doorway with clothespins and tuck them onto mirrors and picture frames. Lastly, holiday stockings are a great idea too. Hang them up from a curtain rod, kitchen cabinet knob, bedframe or bedpost, or bookshelf you have.
