Bring Christmas into your Tiny House
These are the dark days before Christmas. Frankie goes to Hollywood blares through the speakers with his power of love and I am already getting into the Christmas mood. Of course, the corded LED lights that hang above my head with feathers, tiny antlers and blue stars also help. It’s amazing how fast you are done decorating your Tiny House Christmas!
In the mood just like that
This year I don’t have a Christmas tree at home. The Christmas tree that was gifted to me for my first Tiny House Christmas back in 2016 has grown it’s roots deep into the earth of my garden and has grown to at least triple its size. There are also lights in it now, which happily twinkle at me when I look out the window of my sitting area. It’s enough for me. This way I won’t be part of the killing of yet another tree. A cute Christmassy tea light holder it and the string of lights attached to the loft are enough for me to get into the holiday mood. With the woodstove bruning it is warm and cozy in my house!
But how do other Tiny House residents do that, make their already cozy houses even cozier during the Christmas period? I decided to ask them in the Tiny House Nederland Facebook groep.
Leanne has a “fakey” Christmas tree and some lighting in the window and outside. Her cat Lara finds all those lights mighty interesting!
Practice makes perfect
Gabrielle is building her own Tiny House and although it is not finished yet, she is already practicing with tiny Christmas decorations.
No space for a tree
There simply isn’t any space for a Christmas tree in Natasja and Gerbrand’s Tiny House. They solved that last year by hanging up a tree branch and decorating it.
This year they have a light curtain with LED lights, with Christmas pendants attached here and there.
Small is just fine
Nadia has a small artificial Christmas tree with matching small Christmas decorations.
Debby not only has a Tiny House, but also a tiny crib at home.
She has also made her home cozy with nostalgic paper Christmas bells and a string of lights in the shape of a Christmas tree at the window.
Small still life
Dierdre has created a true Christmas still life with a tiny Christmas tree in gold and blue, an attractive chest with firewood and some Christmas ornaments.
Two little trees
Louisse has two small Christmas trees, a green one at the front door that welcomes hers and her guests, and a white metal tree for in the house. That way she doesn’t have to clean up falling pine needles, handy!
As you can see, even in a Tiny House you can be creative with Christmas decorations. You don’t need much and that’s a good thing, because it is a waste of limited storage space to spend it on things that you only use for a few weeks a year. I have this rule for myself: all my Christmas decorations must fit in the basket where my Christmas tree in a pot was in last year. And that’s tiny!
