I am a decorating fanatic. Like, I want to get my Halloween decorations out on August 1st enthusiast. I’ve had larger living spaces in the past, complete with mantles, stairways and built-in bookshelves. Now that I have down-sized, I can’t cram all of my holiday decor into 700 square feet (well, I could but you’d be calling Hoarders).
I’ve become a little more creative (hence the spray paint above) in spooking up my minimal space. Here’s a glimpse at my attempts to transform my place into a miniature house of horrors…
I stuff crazy ex-boyfriends in the freezer with a little help from Hallmark.
I continuously switch out seasonal candles on my entertainment center.
Having a small space doesn’t mean you can’t decorate with big pieces (at least for me it doesn’t. Especially when they involve glitter. Then my motto becomes the bigger the better…).
A square-cut hurricane candle holder sits on my coffee table that I update with holiday decor.
I invested in this green glitter (do you sense a theme here?) tree that I can use for multiple holidays (can’t wait to add pink decor to it for Christmas!).
Switching out an existing picture frame with holiday decor is easy (as long as you have somewhere to stash the usual pic…which is almost always under my bed).
Candles are always a must for me (I mean, I do have a cat – don’t they go hand in hand?) and this haunted house holder makes my vanity trio complete.
Now you know how I sneak some of holiday decor into my mini-manse and I’m sure you think it’s fabulous, right? If you don’t, I’ll be happy to show you my freezer…
