You can't decrease the volume size directly. But you can do this by creating a new volume. You can follow the below steps.
Snapshot the volume.
Create a new smaller EBS volume.
Attach the new volume.
Format the new volume.
Mount the new volume.
Copy data from the old volume to the new volume.
Prepare the new volume.
Detach and unmount the old volume.
