Decorating for the Christmas season in a small house or condo can present multiple challenges, foremost of which is the Christmas tree conundrum. When space is at a premium, it's not easy to move or even remove furniture to accommodate a real tree. And even if you have the space for one, some apartment and condo rules prohibit real trees because of disposal and common-area clean-up issues. Not to mention many condos also don't have a mantel or staircase-traditional places to deck the halls with Yule decor. With these concerns in mind, we gathered up 10 solutions for Christmas decorating in a small space.
1 Use wall decals
