Renter-Friendly Christmas Decorating Tips

Camarillo Tenant Hanging Up StockingsAs a Camarillo renter, you may be considering beautifying your home for the holidays. Thankfully, there are several excellent methods to create renter-friendly Christmas décor. Prepare your rental home for the holidays by taking note of a few, useful tips that will make the preparation easier!

One of the most iconic elements of Christmas décor is the fireplace mantel hung with stockings. If your rental house does not have a fireplace or mantel, however, don’t let that stop you from your holiday decorating. You can choose to go for a rental type. There are plenty of event companies that rent out freestanding mantels. You can use it to become the focal point for your holiday decorating by setting it up in a designated corner of your home.

If renting a mantel isn’t what you would like to do, there are other creative ways to hang Christmas stockings in your home. For example, if you have a bookshelf in your living room, you could use weighted stocking hooks to place Christmas stockings along the front edge of a shelf. Christmas stockings tied to the back of chairs with matching ribbons definitely make for great decorations! In so doing, your dining area becomes lit up with the all too familiar vibe of the merry season. If chairs aren’t available to you, you could hang stockings directly on a wall using removable hooks. Your Christmas stockings can be held in place with these hooks, and they’re extremely convenient to take down after the holidays. For those who want to get creative, though, another option is to make yourself your own freestanding post with hooks!

Aside from the mantel and stockings, the Christmas tree is an absolute must-have for many! You can find ways to grace your rental home with a Christmas tree without having to resort to a live one. For those who insist on having a tree inside their home, a small imitation evergreen tree works just as well as a real one. Placing these trees on a tabletop would look stunning, especially because they come with lights installed. Throw in some of your favorite holiday ornaments and watch the yuletide vibe come to life. If imitation greenery isn’t your favorite, though, consider using a houseplant as your Christmas tree instead! A large potted plant can be hung with fairy lights and small ornaments, fostering an ambient atmosphere that’s perfect for the holidays.

Flowers and fresh-cut greenery are also great options for renters who want to bring the sights and scents of the holidays into their home in a natural way. For example, you can often find cut boughs of pine, cedar, or eucalyptus, all of which smell great and look beautiful arranged on shelves, mantels, and in vases. To make your arrangement more interesting, you can opt to string lights through them, too! Remember poinsettias and other colorful winter plants, too! These lovely flowers are a surefire way of breathing life into any room while bringing back those good old holiday memories.

When decorating for the holidays, exterior décor should be on your list of choices for your home. Simple decorations make for really good and hassle-free home decor. A festive doormat, a beautiful wreath, and seasonal window clings can all send warm holiday wishes to your friends and neighbors. If you opt for lights or garlands, temporary hangers will get the job done without much cost or hassle. If you want to explore the possibilities of customization, you can do stuff with ornaments and fishing lines. Suspend bright ornaments from windows or door frames, tree branches, or other exterior features to create a dazzling winter display.
