Planning to hit the street this Christmas with your family? Surely, you’d want to bring some holiday cheer to your rolling house. From using bows and ribbons on the walls to hanging light chains around the windows, and from sprucing up the living room with a decorative Christmas tree to putting up a set of stuffed reindeer on the roof, there are loads of ways to transform your petrol RV into a Christmas wonderland.
There are two advantages of using homemade decor on your RV. First, they allow you to 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 party is over, you can present these DIY décor things to your RV-er buddies.
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 will remind you about the upcoming festival.
Buying LED lights is an exceptional idea to decorate your RV. Colorful LEDs price $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 choice for you.
Garlands add festive charms to the interior of your motor home. Opt for synthetic items in the event you cannot come by fresh garlands while traveling. You can find these bright décor bits at a fair price. Coming with flexible linings, they could fit any door or cupboard irrespective of their sizes.
Another easy way to present your RV doors a lift is using wreaths. Use different sizes of ornamental bands for different corners of your trainer. You may use towel hangers to suspend these ornamental rings from window or door frames. You may use wreaths to decorate the front side of your rolling house, too. But, you will need a 3M hook for attaching a wreath there. Don’t forget the door handles; give them a makeover with Christmas bells.
Of course, your RV cannot accommodate large Christmas trees, but it does have some space for tree-trimming. You’ll get plenty of these leftover branches at any hardware stores at little or no cost. Put them in a vase to create a cheerful ambiance. Mini-trees are just another fun items which could help you jazz up the inside 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 handcrafted 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. When you store them correctly, you can use them over and over for many years.
