Simple Holiday Decorations To Make Your Kids' Bedroom Festive
The holidays are full of sparkle that the whole family will remember the rest of the year. While the whole house is decked out in holly and tinsel, don't stop at the halls; add some Christmas joy to your kids' bedrooms to make the season more memorable.
Get the children all snug in their beds with a holiday throw, snowflake bedding or holiday pajamas. As Christmas approaches, crawling into bed gets a little more exciting with each evening. Transforming their beds for the holidays makes sleeping merry. Make it a yearly tradition to build anticipation for the most wonderful time of the year. Swapping out their regular pajamas for holiday pajamas also makes sleeping cozy. On Christmas morning, they'll be camera-ready when they tear through their gifts and stockings.
Rudolph's nose isn't quite bright enough to light a child's room in the days leading up to Christmas, but you can add a joyful glow with a holiday night light or string lights around the doorframe and ceiling. They are just bright enough to guide them to the door if they need to get up in the middle of the night to wait for Santa. The lights also are dim enough that they can fall into a gentle slumber after a long day of playing with new toys.
While there may not be a mantel to hang stockings from, there are abundant opportunities to dress up bedroom furniture for the holidays. Weave garland between the bedposts or wrap tinsel around the back of a chair and on a lampshade. On the nightstand or desk, use an LED pillar candle to gently light the room. A nativity scene on the dresser gives it holiday spirit, while hanging ornaments from the handles makes getting ready for school jolly.
Spread cheer indoors and outdoors with a little winter window decor. Spend a Saturday afternoon crafting snowflakes to dangle in the windows. If you don't have time for DIY decor, snowflake decals give the illusion of never-ending flurries. A set of LED candles to match the living room and dining room windows add holiday charm for your child and the whole neighborhood.
Creating a cozy Christmas bedroom for your child doesn't take a lot of effort. A few sparkling additions in the doorway, on the bed, or in the window adds a festive feel you'll want to re-create year after year.
