These festive decorations will fill your RV with holiday cheer this Christmas without taking up too much storage space. Check out these 12 space-saving RV Christmas decor ideas.

1. Garland

The ribbon on this garland from Etsy could be swapped with ribbon for other seasons so that you could leave it displayed year-round and never have to store it at all.

Garland made of ribbon can be great for around windows or slides, or for adding to the tree!

2. Chalkboard signs

Draw a picture or write a message for every holiday!  If you’re not the artsy type, you can follow this tutorial to transfer a printed image to a chalkboard sign.

We love the tiny Christmas tree-shaped chalk board in this fifth wheel!

Or, if you don’t want to mess with chalk at all, you can get the look by just printing a chalkboard sign to frame, like this set of signs for every holiday.

3. Throw Pillow Covers

Throw pillow covers let you change the look of your bedroom or living area for every season but don’t take up too much storage space.  (They also make great gifts!)

You can get a standard-size 18×18 throw pillow and change the covers seasonally.

I love the idea of reversible wood signs like these two from Etsy as decor that works for multiple holidays.

5. One-time use decor

Real evergreen garlands or string garlands made from disposable items such as candy canes, popcorn, cranberries, cinnamon sticks, dried oranges, and pine cones can be used once and then tossed so that you don’t have to store them. 

Real pine garland is more and more popular, especially when you add festive lights!

Poinsettias could also be a one-time use decor, though you could keep it alive and replant it.

6. Holiday Light Projector

A light projector like this one can cover an entire RV with moving LED designs for multiple holidays.  It’s operated with a remote control and not much bigger than a softball.

7. Mason jar candles

RV owner Julie changes the ribbons and ornaments on these Mason jars to match each season.  If you’re worried about fire safety, a remote-operated, battery-powered flameless votive candle would look just as cute in a Mason jar candle holder.

8. Collapsible Christmas Tree

Extra skinny or collapsible trees are perfect for a tiny camper!

Seemingly designed with tiny homes and apartment dwellers in mind, Christmas trees made of tinsel can be stored coiled and expand when you pull them up.
