The last couple years we decorated our master bedroom for Christmas and I have to say, there’s no better way to wake than being surrounded by the magic of Christmas.

Christmas lights create a warm and welcoming atmosphere that just feels magical. They’re quick and easy to integrate and inexpensive. The beautiful glow adds a hint of Christmas to any space – including your bedroom!

Christmas Lights in Bedrooms

It’s amazing what a Christmas tree or a few string lights can do to make to make your bedroom feel festive!

Our Christmas bedroom decor is often just a few simple hints of Christmas, that can be enjoyed all winter. Here are a few ways you can incorporate Christmas lights into the bedrooms in your home – it doesn’t take much to create magic!

Add a Tree

One of the first (and most classic) ways to incorporate light is to use a pre-lit tree. We incorporated our longtime favorite Sparse Christmas Tree into our bedroom and loved the magic it created.

Any size or style can make an impact. We always include a sweet little tree in the girls’ bedrooms. They don’t even need much extra decor – just plug in and enjoy!


One of my favorite holiday tricks is to remove the wall art you enjoy all year, and simply place a wreath on the same hook. Instant Christmas style!

We like hanging glowing wreaths in our diamond pane bedroom windows for a romantic, charming look.

One little strand of fairy lights woven into the green wreaths is all it takes!

Flameless LED Candles

If you love the look of cozy candles, but not the mess – read our guide to fabulous led candle options! We love grouping pillars and tapers in our Christmas bedroom for the most romantic glow.

Lamp Warmers for Candles

This is another charming way to add a glowing light to your bedroom that you can actually enjoy all winter long!

They add light and fill your bedroom with fragrance – what more could you ask for?

Led Birch Trees

These little trees are perfect for winter bedroom decor – they feel like a wintry forest with their white bark and twinkling lights, don’t they?

Group them in a corner on the floor, or add them to your dresser. They make perfect nightstand decor, too.

String Lights Across Art or Pinboards

A simple string of battery operated fairy lights is under $10 and adds instant charm to any area of your room. Why not create some magic by stringing them over the art on your walls?

The weight is so light that they can easily tuck in and around the frames of your art.

Greenery Garlands

Use a pre-lit garland for instant ambiance! I love placing them somewhere unexpected – this year we used one over our upholstered headboard.

They are beautiful down the top of a dresser, or even draped over a bench at the foot of your bed.

There’s really no cozier space than your bedroom, is there?

LED Wall Art

Actually, this one is so much fun we ended up using it all year long! Try swapping your traditional bedroom art with a pre-lit shape, like this charming star in our daughter’s bedroom.
