The following Christmas decorating ideas will look fabulous in small spaces. Keep in mind that less is more!

Hang Ornaments on a Spiral Tree

" "

If you don’t have enough floor space for a large Christmas tree, a small metal spiral ornament tree with a matching star tree topper is a clever option. You can put it on a table and decorate it with ornaments. For instance, you can hang gold and white ornaments. Or perhaps you prefer jewel tones, red, green, blue, and purple. It’s your Christmas tree, so style it any way you want!

Hang a Hanging Basket with Ornaments and Greenery

" "

Another Christmas decorating idea is to use a hanging Christmas basket. You can fill it with micro Christmas lights, greenery, faux berries and twigs, real pine cones, and your favorite ornaments. You could also decorate it with either a solid red bow or a red and gold bow. It will add elegance to your small space.

Hang Garland with Ornaments around a Door or Window

" "

Decorate your door or window with natural Christmas garland. Before hanging the garland, place it on a flat surface and separate the branch tips. Keep in mind that for maximum fullness, the tips should not touch one another. Use a garland hanger to attach the garland around the door. Once you hang the garland, you can add your own ornaments (use hooks or garland ties) in different colors and sizes to make the garland even fuller.

Decorating Your Small Space for the Holidays

Imagine using our Christmas decorating ideas for small spaces. Perhaps you created a modern look with an ornament tree and LED lighted branches. Or maybe you hung garland around your door and window and a contemporary Christmas wreath above a cabinet. Or maybe you kept it super simple by hanging a lighted wall tree and Christmas cards. Whatever the case may be, your small space will be warm and cozy for the holiday season.
