How to Decorate Your Bedroom for Christmas on a Budget- Mrs. Bishop

I love decorating for the Holidays- it’s one of my favorite things to do. But, for some reason, I have never really included my bedroom in the decorating. Crazy, right? However, spending money on Christmas decor when I’m already spending like crazy felt wrong to me somehow. That’s why I decided to share with you how I decorated my bedroom for the Holiday Season on the cheap- no one has to know that you didn’t spend a fortune to make your room look good!


First of all was bedding- I did not want to spend a fortune on bedding that I will only be using 1 month out of the year (or let’s be honest, maybe 2 or 3…). I had even given up on finding affordable bedding until I happened upon this set at Walmart, of all places! I had fallen in love with a set at Bed Bath and Beyond, but it was going to set me back over $100 and I just couldn’t do it, being this close to Christmas. The thought of spending that much on myself made me feel a little sick to my stomach. Mom probs. But, this adorable Christmas Sweater print was under $30. Now that I can handle!


I love the rustic, cozy vibe it gives off. My little guy loves it too- and if it gets ruined, I won’t weep at having lost a pretty penny. It’s perfect adorned with these Placemat Throw Pillows that I threw together. They’re so sparkly and pretty I’m not going to want to put them away next month.

xmasroom4I knew I wanted to hang a mistletoe print above my bed, and I literally spent HOURS trying to find one that I liked. Some were too realistic, and some were just not right. Then I found this adorable set from Paper Heart Company. I loved the watercolor look of the mistletoe, and the fact that it came with a lettered print as well. Perfect for above our bed…you know, where the kissing happens…


Seriously, how cute is it? I loved that it was available as an instant download so I got it right away, and was able to throw the prints in any cheap frame I had laying around for an instant Holiday facelift!

It isn’t fancy, but it looks cute and I love the glow of Christmas lights in my room. I don’t even want to turn it off when we turn in for the evening. I think I’ll miss it the most once it’s gone!

So, that’s it- you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get a festive Holiday inspired bedroom. Just move some things around, get your hands into some DIY and find a few cute pieces that someone else did the work for already!

How is your room decorated this season?
