Or Try a Miniature Version 

What could be sweeter than a three foot tall tabletop tree, all decked out in tinsel and handmade ornaments. We love the mobility aspect of a mini tree; place it on a side console, desk, or dining table.

Scandinavian-inspired Minimalism 

Scandinavian Design is known for its simplicity. According to this DIY-er: “It really is about scaling back and letting a few key items shine against a mostly white backdrop.” Case in point are these delicate hanging wreaths and how they really stand out against the natural, snow-encased surroundings.

Or Try a Miniature Version 

Suspending your wreaths is a strategic space-saving move come holiday season, and so is simply scaling down the size. This adorable mini wreath idea calls for nothing more than rosemary, a wire frame, rubber elastic bands, green wire, and a wire cutter.

A Whimsical Window Display 

A window display really allows you to flex your creative haunches and go all out without sacrificing prime real estate within your home. Use anything from paper cutouts to fairy lights to candles to dry erase markers to create a festive display for all your neighbors to see and enjoy.
