You hear that, reindeer huffs and elf’s laughing, I think I hear Christmas. Yes Christmas is right around the corner and if you are like me you love to decorate your room in all the Christmas decorations, even though you might be away from home doesn’t mean you can loss the holiday spirit. I will show you some fun festive decorations to get your holiday juices flowing.


When you think of Christmas what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? A Christmas tree, I know you can’t have a full 6 foot tree in your dorm but you can have a mini one that can fit on your desk and that will still give off the Christmas vibe. You can find a similar item at target for only 8 dollars.

Hanging lights around your room, such as from corner to corner will allow you to still have those Christmas lights without them having to be on the tree. You can find Christmas lights about anywhere and they are inexpensive.


Even though your tree is small doesn’t mean it can’t have some cute ornaments, I recently went to hallmark and saw some of the cutest ornaments that I have ever seen in my life. They are inexpensive and adorable.

Having a fun and decorative wreath on you dorm door will show your love for Christmas, you can either go out and buy an expensive wreath or you can make your own. If you want to make your own I would suggest you go to any crafting store near you. Buy an inexpensive plain wreath, find some bulbs that you can get about anywhere like at target for about five dollars. Get some ribbon and some little tinsel (if you’re into that). If you want you can look up some ideas of wreath designs or place then anyway you want, use a little hot glue and your done. You got yourself a beautiful self made wreath.


If you love the scent of Christmas then I would suggest getting some “Christmas scented candles.” I would suggest going to either Bath and Body Works or Pier 1 because (in my opinion) they have the best scented holiday candles.


Even though you don’t have a fire place in your dorm doesn’t mean you can’t hang some stockings. Here’s a fun way to have some holiday storage. Hang some stockings (however many you want) beside your door. So when you walk in you can throw your keys in it or even have some candy in there so if you get any guests they can help themselves to some holiday sweets.


Don’t feel that you are in the holiday spirit yet? Why not decorate your bed. At Target they have holiday bedding that will sure bring this holiday room all together.


I hope I got you in the Christmas spirit and gave you some ideas on what you can do to your dorm. Remember shop smart and Happy Holidays!
