holiday decorations for a tiny apartment.

tiny apartment pinecone swags
At long last, a few shots of wintry decorations in our tiny apartment. This year, instead of a tree, I opted for wintery greenery of a more miniature kind: tiny swags, fir clippings in glass bottles, and a tiny garland or two.

I wrote a set of step-by-step instructions for these tiny pinecone swags over on Gardenista where I'm a new contributor. I'd be delighted if you popped by to say hello; there are heaps of holiday inspiration to be found over there.

And here, posts from holidays past:
a wreath.
a scrappy garland.
rosemary holiday cards.
a christmas tree hunt.
wintertime additions.
christmas in connecticut.
a twig of a tree.
snowflakes.

  1. They look lovely! What kind of tape do you use though? I'd love to do something like that but we have a rented apartment and I'm having a huge problem finding tape that doesn't stain/mark the walls?

    1. Japanese masking tape! Lots of pretty colors to choose from and I haven't had any trouble removing it from walls!

  2. Thanks for the tips! I'd like to have a tree, but I don't have room for it unfortunately.

  6. These look darling! We definitely don't have room for a tree in our itty apartment, so this is great inspiration.

  9. I love this idea! So much easier to clean up than a tree, and fits so much easier into smaller spaces :)

  10. The set up in the last shot is awesome! I got a tree this year, but the pine cone swags would be perfect for other less-decorated parts of the apartment!

  12. I love what you've done with your wall! Great idea. I live in a tiny cabin and this will be my first year without (room for) a tree. This gives me some ideas on how to still bring in some cheer!
