Create a Festive Bedroom for Christmas
There is nothing better than adding a bit of holiday cheer to the space you love to relax in most. Take some of these Christmas bedroom ideas and incorporate them into your own home decorating.
Reuse or Grab New Christmas Bedroom Decorations
First of all, you need a supply of Christmas decorations to bring that festive feel into your space. Use old decor if possible. Or try grabbing just a few new things here and there until you can build up your stash of holiday decorations. You can see how I added a Christmas feel to my room with some basics that don't need to cost a lot.

- Red stocking
- Cedar stems
- Red berries for garland
- White and red pillow - Similar
- Red pillows
- Red throw blanket
- Jingle all the Way sign
Tip - Decorating can be so expensive if you are buying new every year. So just buy a few hot items for your space at the beginning of the season to bring it to life. However, you can also grab items during off seasons or post season sales for cheap.

Switch Out Regular Artwork
An easy way to add Christmas spirit to a bedroom is to simply switch out the wall art. Look how much different this room looks with the jingle all the way sign versus the believe sign down below. If you don't use any wall art, swap out the picture frame on your bedside table for a Christmas printable. Don't over think it. Just start by changing little things and slowly build your collection for a Christmas room.
I also added in a small Christmas picture to the nightstand. This doesn't take up as much space and still brings a festive look. Adding in smaller artwork is a really simple way to incorporate some fun elements of Christmas decor.
Add Small Table Decor
In addition to our fun table art, I included a nontraditional mini Christmas tree and a strand of felt garland. You can easily make one of these DIY felt ball garlands on your own and reuse it year after year at Christmas time in any type of decor setting. It's a great way to cut down on decor costs in your festive bedroom for Christmas.
Hang Up Stockings
Don't have a spot in your living room to hang up stockings? Why not add them to your bedroom? Throw in a few festive touches by showcasing your Christmas stockings on your bed frame like I did on my refinished charcoal bed frame. I attached each of our stockings to the bed to create a cozy room feel.
Style a Christmas Bed Tray
Christmas trays are one of my favorite ways for bringing in decor to any space. I love to place it on the top of the bed for an extra focal point on a bed. Plus, they can easily be removed when it is time for bed and then put back the next day. Don't love the idea of a tray on the end of the bed? You can also set a tray on a nightstand or desk.
For this bed tray I used a glass vase with faux pine stems and a red hydrangea to add color. I placed a reindeer in front of it and added another pine branch. So easy, but it adds so much style to a simple space and changes your room into a stunning festive bedroom for Christmas.
Add Garland for a Festive Bedroom for Christmas
Adding a garland to the headboard and footboard changed the look of this bed drastically. Bringing in fresh greenery, an evergreen garland or even a Christmas wreath is the perfect touch to adding in some natural elements of Christmas. However, I would not recommend flocking in the bedroom. The look is absolutely lovely! But flocking can shed a little bit on your bedding which is not ideal for cleaning up.
If you want to incorporate traditional colors for Christmas you can use a red pom pom garland, gold garland or make your own. Simply weave it through the garland for a stunning visual. You can also add red or white berry stems to compliment the traditional color scheme in your festive bedroom for Christmas.
Bring in Christmas Bedding
If you can only do one thing to your room to turn it into a Christmas wonderland, adding Christmas bedding is one of the easiest ways to achieve a festive spirit. Stick with a neutral bedspread and then embellish with stylish accents.
I added a red throw and switched out regular throw pillows to a fun Christmas collection of pillow covers. The bright red and white makes for a beautiful pop of color.
