A Very Tiny Christmas: 18 Tiny Houses Decorated for the Holidays!

Let’s just say 2020 has been a tough year for all of us, and we saw an unprecedented number of people putting up Christmas trees and light displays before the Thanksgiving turkey landed on the table.

Because we could all use some extra holiday cheer this year, we reached out to many of the tiny house/boat/bus/van dwellers we’ve interviewed this year and asked to see their tiny house Christmas decor!

From tiny trees to dainty garlands, you’ll find all manner of minimalist holiday trappings in the pictures below. Get some inspiration, or just soak in the beauty of tinsel and lights!
