Our holiday decorating is in full swing. We’ve already tackled the Christmas tree, the living room decorations and even the front yard decor. Now it’s time to work on the nursery. Adding a few festive decorations to your kid’s room is a great way to introduce them to the holiday and get them excited about it. Whether you go full-on winter wonderland or prefer to keep things small + simple, we found nine ideas that will fill your kiddo’s room with glee.
1. DIY Christmas Tree Art: If you’re set on putting a Christmas tree in the nursery but your baby is still too young to deal with ornaments, this Christmas wall tree version is a terrific alternative. Wood shims are painted and hot glued to a piece of plywood and topped with a glittered popsicle star to make a tree so cute, you may never want to take it down. (via Project Nursery)
2. Fa La La Banner ($30): A little glitter makes everything better, and this banner is no exception. Deck out the baby’s room with a festive banner and instantly add a dose of holiday cheer to the entire space. Designate one specific area for all the decorations (like the top of the dresser) to make a little go a long way.
3. DIY Alphabet + Animals Tree: Teach your little one all about the alphabet and animals while festifying their room at the same time. Grab 26 foam letters and a handful of plastic animals and give everything a fresh coat of paint. Add loops of string with hot glue for hanging or just prop up them up in your tree. Either way, this one is straight-up genius. (via Little Inspiration)
4. DIY Cereal Box Holiday Village: Rescue a few cardboard boxes from the recycling bin and transform them into a totally kid-friendly holiday village. Cover the boxes in wrapping paper and use a combination of craft supplies (like pom-poms and popsicle sticks) and candy to decorate your town. This is a great project for older kids to help with, and they’ll love seeing the finished product proudly displayed in their younger sibling’s room. (via Land of Nod)
5. Handmade Elf Doll ($37): Gift your little one with their very own elf to keep watch over their room. Personalize it by having their name added to the doll’s dress and a hair color that matches your kiddos. This beautiful handmade doll is something the both of you will always treasure.
6. Wee Christmas Tree Set ($37): Your kid will go absolutely crazy when they see this tiny tree in their room. It’s the perfect size to have them help decorate, and since it comes with the tree skirt, gnome topper and 18 fuzzy ball ornaments, you’ll have everything you need to get started. Surprise your kid on Christmas morning with a special present from Santa under their own tree.
7. Toddler Duvet Cover ($39): Something as easy as new sheets can make a huge difference when you’re trying to decorate for the holidays without filling the room with decorations. This fun elf pattern adds just the right amount of Christmas cheer without sticking to the standard red + green color scheme.
8. Holiday Print ($3): Clear out one of the picture frames in the nursery to make room for this super cute print. Since it’s a printable, it’s a cheap and easy fix that will quickly become your go-to trick when it’s time to decorate for any holiday.
9. DIY Paper Christmas Lights Garland: Colored construction paper, a roll of twine and a hole punch are all the supplies you’ll need to make this bright Christmas garland. Make it extra long and drape it around the entire room, or just stick to the area around their bed. No matter where you put it, this is one set of Christmas lights that it’s okay to procrastinate taking down. (via Stubbornly Crafty)
