Holiday Decorating For Your Small Space

Dorm rooms are not exactly the place where you can go all out on decorating for the holidays. Although we won't actually be at the dorms during the holidays, the weeks before are still a festive time, and coming home to a place that feels cheery is exactly what I need when finals are stressing me out. I was recently at the mall and saw some of the most adorable decorations that would give any small dorm or apartment a ton of holiday spirit. I thought I would pick out some of my favorite decorations that I've come across, and also some ideas on Pinterest that I found inspiring!

Mini Christmas Trees: These come in a couple colors, but I personally prefer the red, the pink, and the blue. They're small enough that you can keep one of them on a desk without it taking up too much space, and they give a nice pop of color to any room.

Snowflake Lights: Although I love normal twinkle and christmas lights a lot, this is a classic twist on them. Of course these are a little dangly, so if you have pictures all over the walls it would probably be best to get the regular lights so you don't create a fire hazard.

Pinterest Finds

Popsicle Stick Snowflake: Building on the snowflake theme, here's a snowflake made from popsicle sticks, paint, and glitter! This would be such an easy craft to make, and it would look great on the outside of your door with a nice colorful ribbon on one of those handy dandy command hooks. 

Pearl Ornament: All you need to do is buy a cheap ornament, some faux pearls from your local craft store, and hot glue them on! You could even make a bunch and give them out to friends for their christmas trees. I think this is probably my favorite thing on this list, it's so pretty and easy to make!

Glitter Canvas: Again, another easy craft! Grab a holiday image, trace it onto a canvas, and cover it with glitter. 

Let me know some of your favorite holiday finds or crafts!
