When we lived in a sticks and bricks home, I had 20 Rubbermaid tubs full of Christmas decorations. That's a lot of decorations!
And that is the biggest thing I miss!

I hang large twinkling snowflake lights in the windshield for starters.
Christmas time is my favorite time of year. The best way is to try to decorate with natural elements as much as you can.
There are a ton of pine cones around us and I have always wanted to make a wreath or something out of them.
Or make some ornaments yourself, such as this Rudolph ornament.
The great thing about that is you don't have to worry about extra space to store everything. Then if you have to discard your decorations before traveling, you won't feel bad.
Check thrift stores for Christmas decorations too. My sister-in-law got me the van and trailer for a great price.
I normally don't decorate our tiny home before Thanksgiving.
However, since we arrived early at the RV park that we will be at for the Christmas season, I figured why not decorate our smaller space with some holiday cheer early too?
I received this awesome Candy Cane Christmas Wreath to review. It's a great option for outside of your RV and the best thing is that they can be delivered right to your door.
However, I did notice that Home Depot had its tent set up outside with pine garlands, full-size trees, and many more holiday decorations.
The best part is you can match any color scheme and have as much fun as possible while decorating. You can even decorate pine trees outside if you have any around you.

Even the dog is decorated. lol
Outdoor Space Holiday Decorations
Just because we are full-time RVers, doesn't mean that I can't hang Christmas lights and spread Christmas cheer throughout.
These decorations can be used indoors or outside. I like to place them inside where I can see them.
I have one tree that is just for special ornaments. I had a personalized coffee mug and ornament made for my BFF last year.
A fun way that I decorate outside is by placing Santa hats on the mirrors. Sometimes, outdoor RV Christmas decorations are a hoot.
I also have tiny trees inside and out. I am always on the lookout for creative ways to decorate my artificial trees and make them look real.
You don't have to go crazy on the outside tree but it gets a festive look by placing it in a metal bucket filled with sand. Then I put big light bulbs on it.
I got the tree marked down at Michaels because it didn't light up. Not bad!
Originally, I saw the idea on Pinterest many years ago and thought it was a great idea.
You can pick up a miniature tree or a full-sized tree at a thrift store and will cost very little money.

Because we are limited on our electric output also, you can use lights with rechargeable batteries, use a battery pack, or even solar string lights.
Choose what the best solution is for your situation.
Indoor Camper Christmas Decorations
Once again, this all depends on how much floor space you have to devote to pencil trees and such. I love the real thing, however, I had no choice but to go with a skinny tree because of very little space.
Our first Christmas and second Christmas in our RV full-time were in fifth wheels. Two different ones as a matter of fact.
I loved our 12-foot artificial Christmas tree that we had in our sticks and bricks home. But unfortunately, we had to go with a smaller tree.
I found the perfect way to decorate it. A simple way with coastal ornaments.
It wasn't until we got our motorhome that I was able to go with skinny Christmas trees. Yes, I have multiple trees.
A Tiny Christmas tree in the bathroom too and miniature Christmas trees are scattered throughout.
