Create Some Holiday Magic When You Decorate Your Child’s Bedroom For The Holidays
“May you never be too grown up to search the skies on Christmas Eve.”
We decided to bring Christmas decor out early this year to create a special kid’s holiday bedroom for our daughter. Everyone needs a little extra joy this holiday season. Am I right? With everything going on in the world and being home more than usual, we decided that this was the perfect year to make Christmas extra special for our 6 year old. Plus, when she asked if we could decorate her bedroom for Christmas, how could I say no? Hopefully this kid’s holiday bedroom will give you some inspiration for decorating your home too.
Bloggers Best – Holiday Home Tour 2020
I am so honored to be a part of the Bloggers Best Holiday Home Tour 2020. Thank you to Kelly from The Tattered Pew and Mansa from This Is Simplicite for organizing this holiday tour. If you’re stopping by from Cassie’s blog, WELCOME!
Creating A Cozy Holiday Themed Bed
We recently purchased an antique looking white metal bed frame for our daughter’s birthday. She was instantly pretending that the bed was her Christmas sleigh and I’m pretty sure that’s when she decided she needed a Christmas bed this year. Thus we started decorating a kid’s holiday bedroom.
Last year we purchased this Martha Stewart Holiday Bedding from Macy’s on Black Friday. Unfortunately they’ve discontinued the duvet, but they still have these holiday flannel sheets. Below you’ll find several similar quilts and duvets that would look great for a holiday bed. We finished the bed with this cute “Ho Ho Ho” Pillow. And of course my daughter insisted the Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer needed to be on the bed too!
Holiday Books On The Shelf
Our family loves to bring out the Christmas and holiday books as soon as Halloween is over. Last year we decided to build up our holiday collection of books and we did 12 Days of Christmas Books where our daughter received a new book each day. This year we placed some of our favorite holiday books on the shelves next to my daughter’s bed. Each night we read one or two of these books before bed.
Adding Holiday Decor To The Bedroom
Would you believe that we spent less than $20 this year decorating my daughter’s bedroom for Christmas? The only decor we purchased this year were the reindeer garland and red & white pom poms. Everything else in my daughter’s room has been re-used from years past. I actually made these Christmas trees (pictured above) using styrofoam trees and leftover holiday fabric. I cut the fabric and pinned it on to the trees.
The advent calendar in my daughter’s room is actually my childhood advent calendar. She loves this nativity scene and it’s so fun to wake up each morning and put a nativity piece on the calendar as she counts down to Christmas. While my advent calendar is no longer available, I’ve linked a few similar ones you might like:
DIY Holiday Wall Decor: Holiday Wrapped Presents
Above my daughter’s bed was a gallery wall of mermaids and ocean critters. The pastel colors didn’t quite go well with the Christmas decor. Instead of taking them down, we decided to wrap the frames like presents. I used three different wrapping papers and wrapped each frame individually. You could add bows to the wrapped frames to make them look even more like presents. I love how this simple DIY created a Christmas gallery wall above the bed.
Children’s Holiday Bedroom Inspo
I hope that seeing my daughter’s Christmas themed bedroom gave you some inspiration for creating your own kid’s holiday bedroom. Instead of going out and buying lots of new decorations for their room, consider letting them even make some decor. You could make paper garlands, cut out Christmas trees, and more!

What an adorable Christmas bedroom! Your daughter sounds like quite the designer 😂 I love all the charming elements and pops of color and what a clever idea to wrap her existing artwork in wrapping paper, that was genius!! Merry Christmas 🎅
Yes, my daughter LOVES to rearrange and decorate. It’s amazing how a little wrapping paper really transformed the space above her bed!
Oh my, what a darling kids’ room! I love your wrapped present wall & reindeer garland! Have a joyful Christmas season! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

What a dreamy kids Christmas bedroom!!! I would for sure have visions of sugarplums dreaming here.
Thank you so much Cassie! It was fun to let my 6 year old help decorate her holiday room!
Jennifer Fancher says
Jennifer! This is perfectly festive – it reminds me of the “visions of sugarplums” line from Twas the Night Before Christmas. Any child would LOVE to have Christmas dreams in this room!
Aww thank you for the sweet comments. Happy Holidays Jennifer!
Jen!! I loved touring this room!! It was full of such wonderful ideas for decorating any kiddos room! This year we plan to move my youngest daughter into my oldest daughters room and I’m so excited to get started!! Next year I’ll be pulling out this blog post to help remind me how to create a cozy space to bring joy to my little ones!
Aliya, I’m so glad you were inspired by this holiday room! I’d love to see how you decorate your girls’ rooms next year! Happy Holidays!

Yes, the sheets are so soft. Unfortunately the duvet was discontinued, but they have some very similar ones this year. Thank you Kelly for including me in this great group! I had so much fun on the holiday blog tour!
Julie Briones says
Your daughter’s Christmas bedroom is lovely! So bright and airy, and I love that you “wrapped” the artwork above her bed! The white and red look lovely together on the bed, as well. So nice to meet and tour with you, Jennifer (have you counted how many Jennifers, Jens, and Jennas we have on this tour?! 😉 ) Pinned and sharing!
Haha, so many Jennifer’s in this fun group! It was the #1 girl name in the early 80’s (guess that gives away my age ;). Loved being a part of this fun tour with you. Happy Holidays Julie!
What a wonderful idea to decorate your daughter’s bedroom for Christmas. It looks so cheerful and I can imagine that she loves it. It’s so special that she is using the advent calendar that you used as a child. Hopefully one day she will use it with her children.
Yes, it’s so special that she’s able to use my advent calendar. It’s the first thing she does every morning when she wakes up!
Lora Bloomquist says
This is so adorable! I especially love the idea of just wrapping the existing wall hangings like presents for the season; brilliant! Love making kids rooms magical during the Christmas season:)
Yes! We had so much fun wrapping her mermaid prints in Christmas wrapping paper. Made the room come together and didn’t cost more than a roll of wrapping paper!
Jen I love how you decorated the bedroom! I really love that bedding! xoxo
Thank you Stacy! The bedding is so soft. Makes the perfect holiday duvet and flannel sheets!
Oh my gosh Jen! Your daughter’s room is adorable! I love every detail, especially the wrapped present wall. This just brightened up my day.

Carol Reinhard says
What a wonderful “Early Christmas gift” for your daughter. This has been a rough year on everyone, especially young children. Decorating your daughter’s room surely helps to “Make the Season Bright.” ‘Such a delightful way to finish out 2020 in a room full of joy and promise for the New Year! Santa will certainly visit your home this year and perhaps bring you a White Christmas! Thanks for the inspirations!
Yes, she loves the room. A white Christmas sure would be a nice gift this year!
Rachel Harper says
This might be the cutest ever. YOu did such a great job.
So glad we were on this tour together.
Thank you so much Rachel for the kind words. Happy Holidays!
What a sweet room! It really caught my eye on Instagram. You’re giving me lots of inspiration for my boys’ room. I’m even eyeing your shelving and wondering how that would look in their room so I can decorate it seasonally. Just gorgeous! Happy Holidays!
