Just because you lack space, doesn’t mean you can’t make your home festive and fun. Try these ideas on how to decorate for Christmas without a tree. Trust us, Santa would love it!

Decorating your home for Christmas is always a fun activity. You know what they say, it’s the most beautiful time of the year to unleash your inner child and get creative! However, not all of us live in a spacious place where we have room for a tree. Many of us who live in smaller spaces might have a room for a mini tree on the coffee table, but seriously, the lack of space can interfere with your ideas on how festive and fun you want your home to look and feel like.

Today, we want to share these brilliant ideas by City Chic Decor on how to decorate for Christmas without a tree. The key is to keep everything simple and not overdo it. Too many decorations can make the space look cluttered and even smaller.

Add Decorations to Your Mirrors

You can still make your home feel festive by decorating your mirrors with wreaths, garlands, and lights. It’s pretty simple, but it’s an excellent idea to add holiday cheer to your space without taking up your precious floor space.

Add Lights Wherever Possible

If we’re being honest, decorating for Christmas is all about the tiny string lights or bright Christmas lights. Make your space merry and bright by incorporating lights wherever possible, like on top of your curtains or placing strings of tiny lights in glass jars or vases and placing them all over the space.

Utilize the Surface Space You Have

One of the ways on how to decorate for Christmas without a tree is to maximize the surface space you have, like your coffee table, dining table, dresser, or nightstand. Add small accents like a mini tree, or add garlands with tiny ornaments and lights. Just like City Chic Decor decorated her console, you can also create your own style. If you have a dining space, you can decorate the dining table with a mini tree or a mini Christmas village as the centerpiece. Hang stockings on your desk or dresser, as well!


Utilize the Wall Space You Have

If you don’t have enough surface to work with, you can always utilize your wall space. You can also improvise a tree on the wall with garlands or wood and lights! However, if you want to keep it simple, you can simply hang a holiday sign so that you wouldn’t overcrowd the space.
