Christmas Bedroom Decor - DIY Pillows, Wreath + More


One of my favourite parts of Christmas is decorating the house my apartment for the season.  Although I am going home in the middle of December for a break from school/work I am still decorating my little space.  I want to share those decor ideas with some of you.



First and easiest thing to do is probably change your sheets to something more festive.  I got these flannel red plaid sheets from Target last year (R.I.P. Target Canada) but there are tons of options out there at Walmart, Homesense, etc.  I used to have penguin sheets when I had a smaller bed but I like these ones cause they can be left all winter (past Christmas) and still be warm and cozy because they're flannel.


Next, I usually put up some fairy lights.  I like the ones with the white cord for inside because there's not a lot of greenery going on in the bedroom.  I put them up with little thumb tacks but you can use whatever you think works best.


I made this super affordable wreath with all things from the dollarstore.  I was inspired by fellow Canadian Kalyn Nicholson (check out her YouTube channel).  I found all these items at Dollarama but again, you can use whatever you like, buy any wreath or look on Pinterest for some other DIY ideas.


I bought this wreath, some snow-covered pine cones (6 packs of 8 I think) and some red ribbon.  You'll need a hot glue gun.


All I did was hot glue the ends of the pinecones and push them into the wreath, I went around twice but you could just go once or go 3 times and it would still look great.


I finished off with a red bow and thats it!  Hang it up above your bed or on your front door and there you have it.


Next I made some pillows to add some more coziness to my bed.  I have a hard time shelling out money ($30-$40?!) for decorative pillows that you don't even use.  So I usually buy cheap pillow cases and decorate them.  This idea is similar to the Big Spoon, Little Spoon pillows I made awhile ago.


All you'll need are some cheap pillow cases (you may want to wash them first) and some fabric paint.   Then all I did was paint little pine trees all over, I think they look really cute next to the red plaid ones and are Christmasy, but also will work through the winter.  If you're worried about your painting skills, a stamp is a good option as well.


If you're wondering where I got the knitted throw from, stay tuned because I will be sharing more details shortly!  (Hint: it involves an Etsy shop)

  2. Every pillow you see has a claim or an advertisement stating how great that pillow is. There are many pillows that could be considered good quality pillows for neck pain. best pillows in india

  3. Your room stylistic theme won't mirror your beautiful thoughts except if it is something you appreciate, regardless of on the off chance that it is snowing outside or pool climate. interior designer
