Shrink holiday decor without shrinking holiday cheer!
Decorating a Tiny House RV requires ingenuity and creativity. Try utilizing all five sense when decorating your tiny space: smell, touch, sight, sound and taste. Consider alternatives - do you really need a humongous Christmas tree to enjoy your holiday? It's time to get creative.
This Christmas, think tiny!
When it comes to decorating a tiny space, a little goes a long way. For classy decor, keep your decorations simple and sparse. Combine a few of the following "simple decor ideas" this Christmas in your Tumbleweed.
Simple Decor Ideas:
- Attach two or three strands of LED or Solar Powered Christmas lights to your tiny roof. Because two or three is all you need!
- Hang a holiday wreath on your door to create a festive entrance way.
- Hang a mistletoe in your loft.
- Collect pinecones and spray paint them with festive colors, frost paint and/or glitter. Display them around your Tiny House RV or create a tiny DIY Christmas tree.
- Frost your windows
- Hang faux snow flakes from your ceiling

Christmas Tree Options for Tiny House RVs
A standard Christmas tree can overpower the useable space in your Tiny House RV, but don’t worry, we've listed a few creative alternatives that still embodied the Christmas spirit.
- DIY Wall Mounted Tree. Create wall art in the shape of a tree. Use branches, ornaments, or a single stand of lights! The kids will love this DIY project.
Purchase a canvas and let your kids paint their own Christmas tree or make one with sticky felt pieces. You can create a collage of items found outdoors, old jewelry pieces, quotes from your favorite story book or lyrics from your favorite Christmas carols. The options are limitless!
- Edible Christmas Tree. The best part about this Christmas tree is that you don’t have to throw it away or store it! Keep a bag of truffles to replace the ones you eat. This tree will just keep giving!
- Outdoor Christmas Tree. Why not decorate a living tree in your front yard? Get as elaborate as you want! You can even choose a tree larger that your Tiny House RV.

- Miniature Tree / Plant. Purchase a small house plant and decorate it as your Christmas tree. After the holidays it will continue to act as everyday decor, or plant it outside.
