Holiday Decorating Tips for Your RV

1. Use Indoor and Outdoor Lights

A variety of lights is key to decorating your RV for the holidays. String indoor lights along the walls for a cozy, inviting effect. Be sure to use LED lights since these generate very little heat and last significantly longer than conventional lights.

Outside, you can get creative with your lights! Decorate the front of your RV and consider even adding a red reindeer nose. Or, if you have an awning, use large colored bulbs or icicle lights for a very cheerful look. Just be sure that all your lights are waterproof and try to use LEDs when possible.

2. Make a Tabletop Christmas Tree

RVs don’t often have space for full-size trees. That doesn’t mean that you must go without! Dollar Tree has an excellent tutorial for putting together a tabletop Christmas tree of your own.

3. Adorn the Windows with Paper Snowflakes

An easy and inexpensive way to add holiday cheer is to adorn your RV windows with paper snowflakes. All you need is some plain white paper and a good pair of scissors. You can find a tutorial here but you’re simply folding the paper into a small triangle, then making cutouts along the edges. Curvy, zig-zag, and straight cutouts will all create different styles of snowflakes when unfolded.

4. Create a curtain of ornaments

One of our favorite RV decorating ideas is to turn your doorway into a surprising centerpiece. You can use fishing line or string to hang ornaments from the top of your doorframe. This leads to a gorgeous curtain of ornaments upon entry!
