It’s hard to get into that festive spirit when you are cramped into a tiny space. Here are some great tips on how to embrace the holidays with out the holidays invading your home.

Tip 1: Ornaments don’t always have to hang from a tree!

Fill up pitchers or vases that are normally stored around your house with your favorite ornaments. This will provide the look and feel of the holidays without the necessity of a huge tree or the clutter.

Tip 2: Downsize your tree!

Try using a wall decal. Montreal-based Subhuti Designs and available on etsy.com. The sticker decals are made of vinyl, come in a large range of cheery colours, and are easily removable. They’re even suitable for smooth surfaces like fridges, large furniture and windows.

Tip 3: Gift Wrap Your Pillows

Turn any pillow into a decoration. Tie a wide ribbon around the pillow for a pop of color and a festive touch. Position the pillows whereever you want a little holiday cheer.
