Happy December 1 and welcome to the 7th annual Very Merry Christmas Home Tour blog hop hosted by Carrie of Lovely Etc. This is a one-day blog hop with links to all the beautiful and inspiring posts below!

Let me ask you a question

Do you add Christmas decor to your bedroom?

I'm betting that most of you will say no. It's not really something we think about.

Decorating my bedroom for Christmas wasn't on my radar either.

Until last year!

Last year was the first time in 28 years of marriage that I decorated our master bedroom for Christmas! You can see our romantic and cozy Christmas bedroom here. I don't know why I waited so long to bring some holiday magic to our bedroom!

When our kids were little, they always always had a small tree in their bedrooms, filled with their own personal ornaments. One of our family traditions is to gift the kids a new ornament each year so when they leave home, they'll have enough ornaments to decorate their own tree.

Of course, our boys could care less at this point (they're 23 and 24) but someday I know they'll be thankful to have a bin full of ornaments!

Our daughter put up a tree in her bedroom this year filled with all her "old" ornaments (she's 16) plus some new ones we purchased at Hobby Lobby.

When I added our King of Christmas flocked pencil tree to our bedroom last year, along with twinkle lights and simple Christmas decor, we absolutely loved it! Our bedroom became a romantic and cozy retreat with those simple additions!

How to decorate your bedroom for Christmas

This year I kept it even simpler. I didn't add a large Christmas tree.

Instead, I brought in a couple of tabletop trees that I plopped into wicker baskets. I flocked these trees myself last year (you can watch me do it in my Instagram highlights), and was happy to see that the flocking was still on when I unpacked them this year!

Our Texas attic gets mighty hot and humid and I just wasn't sure how the DIY flocked trees would hold up!

The snowy trees add that wintry Christmas feel (which we have to manufacture!) in our bedroom. To me, it adds to that feeling of escaping to a retreat in the mountains of Colorado!

We didn't get to do that this year thanks to COVID, so I'm creating that feeling at home in our bedroom.

Christmas wreaths and plaid throw in bedroom

Last year during Christmas clearance sales, I snagged several small greenery wreaths. I actually use them in my home year round (they're the perfect size to use with a candle). For Christmas this year I hung them above our headboard from red striped ribbon.

Our faux brick wall is one of my favorite things about our bedroom makeover! We updated our master two years ago, adding lots of European farmhouse elements like the brick wall, a double set of DIY barn doors, painted weathered dressers that were formerly orangey oak, and more. You can view our master bedroom makeover here.

The brick wall is rustic so I can nail into it and not worry about holes.

During the previous months I had fun adding lots of copper and blue cozy fall touches to our bedroom. One of the additions I made at that time was adding the farmhouse garland over our headboard, along with copper fairy lights.

I simply left the lighted garland in place as it adds that perfect twinkle for Christmas. The lights are on a timer, so they come on and go off at the same time every day!

A red plaid wood throw added to the snowy linens looks Merry, as do the striped stockings I hung from the bed posts. I love our romantic ruffled duvet set, and it's such a great price that I bought two in white and one set in gray!

One of my DIYs this year was making temporary Naughty and Nice Christmas pillow wraps. You can read how I made the pillow wraps, as well as find out who the naughty one in our family is (along with a few stories to prove this fact!) 😉😃

I hope you've enjoyed these simple Christmas ideas for the bedroom! And if you have never decorated your bedroom for Christmas, try adding one or two of these ideas for some merry magic this holiday season! I promise you'll love it!

Pin it to remember!

  1. What a beautiful bedroom you have to enjoy for Christmas! I love all of your festive details and I'm now inspired to add a little Christmas to my bedroom.

    1. Thanks so much Paula! I'm so happy to inspire you a little this Christmas!!

  2. Cindy I just love your bedroom. The headboard is stunning and that brick wall is just amazing. I think my favorite thing about your Christmas decor are the little wreaths above your bed. I am going to have to remember that when I go shopping at the end of the season. I dream of decorating my bedroom every year but I usually run out of steam. You have inspired me!

    1. Aww, what a huge compliment Wendy! Thank you! I understand about running out of steam... that's probably why I've started to decorate so early! Then I can enjoy shopping, wrapping and baking!

  3. I love your Christmas bedroom! The woods and white colors are beautiful with a few pops of red.

  4. Your bedroom looks so beautiful decorated for Christmas Cindy. Those pillows are a hoot! Merry Christmas!

  5. This is just adorable! I love the little stockings and I'm always a fan of pops of red. I usually swap out our bedding to a red and white quilt. But now I think I need a little garland and some twinkle lights. You are inspiring me.

    1. Aww thanks Kim, it really doesn't take much work to create a cozy Christmas bedroom! So happy to inspire you :)

    1. Thank you Meegan, I can pretend there's snow (and mountains!) outside :)

  9. Oh, you've got the most dreamy bedroom Cindy and it looks SO cozy all decked out for the holidays! We'd never really decorated our bedroom either until a few years ago, but I love how magical it feels filled with Christmas trimmings, I'll never be able to stop now. There's really nothing like falling asleep under the glow of Christmas lights! Happy holidays my friend!

    1. Aww, thank you Kristi, your sweet comments made my day! I agree that it's so magical and feels a little bit indulgent :) Merry Christmas to you and your sweet family!!
