As the Holiday season continues, you’ve probably already dipped your home in some Christmas cheer. A tree, a wreath on the door, a giant inflatable Santa? But have you brought the Holiday cheer to your kids’ bedrooms? I’m pretty sure mine would never sleep if I put up a lit tree in their room, but there are small, simple ways to decorate kids’ rooms for Christmas.

I’ve been browsing decor ideas from designers and everyday folks alike, to bring you a selection of kids’ rooms that are making the most of the Holiday season.

Simple Ways to Decorate Kids’ Rooms for Christmas

Chalkboard Designs

If you don’t already have a chalkboard wall, now is the perfect time to paint one. A chalkboard wall allows you to switch up your decoration for any theme or season. This Santa Claus countdown design is adorable!

Christmas Kids Bedding

Changing out your kids’ bedding for a cute Christmas design is a sure fire way to bring a smile to their face. This particular penguin bedding is from Garnet Hill although sadly I’m not sure they still stock this design. Still, I love the stocking garland too so wanted to include the photo for inspiration!


Whether you go for reindeers, penguins or Santa, there are so many kids’ Christmas bedding designs to pick from. Check out my favorite shopping picks below:

Christmas Garland

I’m a big fan of a classic garland because they are so versatile! Wrap them around the stair railing, across the mantle and anywhere you can think of! This sweet girl’s room has the most adorable bed and it’s perfect for some Christmas decoration!


Christmas Decals

Those who have been following for a while know I love a good kids decal. Christmas is the perfect time to get sticker happy because they are easily removed after the Holiday season has passed. 


I picked out my favorite decal designs because it is one of the most simple ways to decorate kids’ rooms for Christmas:

Pine Cones

I love this image from Pottery Barn Kids and of course, it is full of gorgeous kids decor. But… the pine cones caught my eye because it’s a DIY item you could do with the kids. A fun activity and the perfect Holiday decoration.


Fairy Lights

Fairy lights are great for kids rooms all year round but I had to mention them because they are totally festive. You just might have trouble getting them down again when the Holiday season is over! Still, they will go perfectly with your little one’s princess or unicorn themed bedroom!

I’m in the market for some new fairy lights myself because Elsie used to have some gorgeous paper lanterns above her bed which have finally given up on me. Here’s what I found:

An Advent Calendar

I love the Christmas kid’s room shown below. Who knew blue could look so festive! There are so many ways to use an advent calendar as Christmas decor and this tree decal and it’s hanging ball-balls are perfect!



Stars are good all year round, but bunch them together and light them up and things are definitely warming up to Christmas. This cute bedroom is designed by Simple Style Co in Australia. The Aussies know how to do kids rooms!

Don’t keep the Holiday decoration to the living room and porch… bring some cheer to your little ones and find simple ways to decorate kids rooms for Christmas.
