Planning to hit the street this Christmas with your family? Surely, you would want to add some holiday cheer to your rolling house. From using ribbons and bows on the walls to hanging light chains round the windows, and from sprucing up the living space with a decorative Christmas tree to putting up a set of stuffed reindeer on the roof, there are loads of ways to transform your diesel RV into a Christmas wonderland.
1. Use DIY Decors
There are two advantages of using homemade decor in your RV. They help you add a personal touch to your rig. Plus, they can help you change the look and feel of your coach on a limited budget. When the celebration is over, you can present these DIY décor items to your RV-er friends.
Your Christmas decoration won’t ever be complete without candles. You can buy a set of Christmas calendar candles. Start burning them from the first day of December and each day they’ll remind you about the upcoming festival.
Purchasing LED lights is an exceptional idea to decorate your RV. Colorful LEDs cost $10-$20. They operate on extremely low energy. A lighted spiral tree can take your décor to another height. If you are considering a boondocking adventure throughout the Christmas, battery-saving LED lights be an ideal décor alternative for you.
Garlands add festive charms into the interior of your motor home. Opt for synthetic items in the event you cannot come by fresh garlands while traveling. You can get these bright décor pieces at a fair price. Coming with flexible linings, they can fit any door or cabinet irrespective of their sizes.
Another easy way to present your RV doors a lift is using wreaths. Use different sizes of ornamental bands for various corners of your trainer. You can use towel hangers to suspend these ornamental rings from door or window frames. You can use wreaths to decorate the front side of your rolling home, too. But, you’ll need a 3M hook for attaching a wreath there. Do not forget the door handles; give them a makeover with Christmas bells.
4. Spruce up the Décor With Mini- Trees and Tree-Trimmings
Needless to say, your RV can’t accommodate large Christmas trees, but it does have some space for tree-trimming. You will get loads of those leftover branches in any hardware shops at little if any price. Put them in a vase to create a cheerful ambiance. Mini-trees are another fun items that can help you jazz up the interior of your motor home. Some varieties like mini-rosemary or mini-pine would not cost you more than $15. To add more charm, hang couple of ornaments from the mini-trees. The metal, wooden or handmade ornaments look great in RVs. Opt for lasting and easy-to-store bits so that you can use them for a longer time.
Add images of Santa Claus or Christmas elves to set the festive mood in your rig. Decals are a one-time investment. When you store them properly, you can use them over and over for several years.
