If you’re not going for Christmas, but still want to celebrate this holiday in style, decorating your dorm room is a must. Here are five tips for welcoming the holiday spirit into your dorm when your room and resources are extremely limited.

Small Christmas Tree

You might not have enough room in your dorm for a huge Christmas tree, but making space for a small one is possible. Wall-hanging Christmas trees are also an option, and you can easily make your own, using fairy lights.


There’s something truly magical about checking what’s inside your stocking on a Christmas morning. You can make plans with your dormmate to hang stockings in your dorms and buy each other tiny presents.

Fairy Lights

Hanging fairy lights around your dorm is a great way to brighten up the space and give it a cozy feel just in time for the holiday season without spending a fortune.

Christmas Wreaths

Christmas wreaths come pretty cheap these days and making your own is also easy, so you should definitely hang one on your door this holiday season.

Natural Décor

Your budget for Christmas decorations is pretty limited when you’re a student, but there are many natural decorations you can easily make on your own, such as paper snowflakes and citrus food ornaments.
