You may be particular about the holiday decor in the rest of your home, but Christmas bedroom decorating for kids is all about fun. I’m sharing ways I’ve added Christmas colors and decor to my kids’ bedrooms to spread the holiday cheer.
Why decorate a kid’s bedroom for Christmas?
The holiday season is full of excitement and anticipation for our little ones. Once they see those organized Christmas decorations come out of storage they know the big day is near. It’s fun to watch their eyes light up as they pull out ornaments one by one.
If you love to decorate for the holidays, it’s likely your kids do too. My daughter always wanted to borrow a few Christmas decorations for her bedroom. But now that she has her tree, she looks forward to turning her room into a winter wonderland.
What better way to let them feel some control than to give them creative freedom in their Christmas bedroom decorating? Keep reading to see the styles my kids have decorated their bedrooms for the holidays over the years. Yes, they let me help!
Christmas trees in a kid’s room
My daughter’s bedroom started girly with vintage country cottage pink and blue bedding and accents. She was so excited to get her very own tree and wanted it to match her room. So, we got Juliet a flocked tree and I found some ornaments and the cutest blue and pink gingham ribbon.
It matched her decor perfectly and she was thrilled with her new Christmas bedroom. Having her tree all lit up was so exciting for her!
Her room got a few neutral updates the next year and while she still loves everything pink, she opted for more traditional Christmas colors like red and green. She picked out a cute red pom-pom garland and a Santa hat to go on top.
We used a similar setup when my boys shared a room as well. The tree fit perfectly between the beds and provided a little Christmas cheer.
Once my boys decided to have separate rooms, my oldest opted for a simple pre-lit birch tree instead. I love how it adds a holiday touch with having to use traditional Christmas colors.
Kids Christmas bedding
When we switched to a red-and-white color scheme, it was a breeze to find the perfect bedding for the kid’s rooms. Juliet preferred the festive look of the printed sheets and checkered comforter set.
My oldest is a teenager now and has grown out of the red and green Christmas bedroom look. Here we went for more of a winter theme with a woodsy print bedding set and cozy throw.

Christmas bedroom decor
The biggest changes we make to the kids’ rooms this time of year are adding a tree and swapping out the bedding. But the little holiday accents are what tie it all together.
The bedsheets in my daughter’s room were printed with vintage red trucks with a Christmas tree in the back. We knew just what decor to add to her nightstands to match. A vintage red truck and some small Christmas trees!
For her little desk area, we used some tree artwork and a strand of garland with colors that matched the rest of the decor.
With the latest updates to Juliet’s room, she opted for a few Christmas pillows and a wreath above the bed. Perfect accents for a Christmas bedroom!
