Christmas Decorating Ideas: Decorate Your Mantel
Hang your stockings below, but don’t forget to decorate the top of your mantel! Our Cambridge Pre-Lit Cascading Christmas Garland is a life-like garland that includes 100 warm white LEDs. Drape this beautiful garland over your mantel and leave a few branches to dangle and cascade over the sides. You can weave this Christmas garland in and out of other mantel decorations like candlesticks. Set the built-in timer to keep the lights on for 6 hours and off for 18.

Another way to decorate your mantel in a small space is to drape elegant Christmas swag.

Christmas Decorating Ideas: Adorn Your Windows
When you’re thinking of Christmas decorations for a small space, don’t forget your windows! We love the look of window icicles because they’re designed to go inside your window, inside and out. You just attach them to a window glass with suction cups. Each strand of lights hangs straight thanks to patented stay straight clips. Mix and max white, warm white, or multi-colored strands. No matter how compact your living space, you can add a festive look to your windows or patio doors by lighting them up with Christmas lights.
Christmas Decorating Ideas: Decorate with Small Christmas Trees
Decorate your small space with pre-lit entryway Christmas trees. Why? Because you may not have room for a 6-foot Christmas tree. And quite frankly, you may not want to deal with unpacking and repacking it after the holidays are over. The realistic branches are wrapped with clear mini lights and lights shine through the translucent panels of the glitter-gold base. The result is a stunning prism effect. You can place one in your living room and another in a guest bedroom. Decorating with Christmas trees has never been this easy!
