Decorate Your Doorway
There are endless ways to decorate a wreath that will liven up your doorway or the space above your mantel. Then when you're done for the season, you can recycle it. See our Christmas Wreath Ideas.
If you're so space-challenged that you can't fit a full-size Christmas tree, consider one or several live tabletop trees. You can add them to your entryway, dining area or even bedrooms. If you prefer a DIY touch, take a look at these Decorative Tabletop Christmas Trees.
Center of Attention
Consider other seasonal centerpieces for small-scale decorating. Small, cut birch logs, LED candles, succulents and bright ornaments create a warm, festive dinner table. Remove the decorations after the holidays for a simple, natural display through the winter. See more Easy Holiday DIY Centerpieces.
Liven Up Your Mantel
If you get a fresh-cut tree, keep the greenery that's trimmed off the bottom to decorate your mantel and dining table. Add garlands for additional texture and ornaments for a sparkling effect. See more Christmas Mantel Ideas.
Really short on space? Tack greenery and ornaments on a board to create a Christmas tree. Add a galvanized bucket below to hold gifts. After the holidays, take the greenery down and reuse the bucket to hold ice at your next party or summer BBQ.
A Work of Art
If green isn't your thing, skip the fresh tree and greenery altogether and paint a Christmas tree on a board. When the season is over, flip the board over and have another piece of artwork you can hang the rest of the year. Take a look at Alternative Christmas Trees for more space-saving ideas.
Adorn with Flowers
Flowers are an easy way to make a colorful impact during the holidays. From entryways and living spaces to kitchens or bathrooms, amaryllis, paperwhites or poinsettias can pack a decorative punch. Get ideas with our Top Holiday Flowers and Plants.
Display candles on turned pedestals and embellish with select Christmas tree ornaments. Even after you remove the decorations, the candles and wooden pillars warm the look of any room year-round.
