Christmas-themed bedrooms and guest rooms have become extremely popular over the last 5-10 years, and it’s no secret why. They create a warmth and coziness that welcomes you (or your guests) to a peaceful haven of comfort and holiday cheer. And we could ALL use a little of both of these this year! So I came up with a quick, easy, and affordable wall decorating idea for ~$50. It’s a great way to make a big impact that you can hang above your bed, over a dresser, or even on a blank wall. Let’s get to it! Here is our Christmas Bedroom Wall Decor: Using Wreaths.

Christmas Bedroom Wall Decor: Using Wreaths
- (2) 24″ Christmas Wreaths – similar here, here, or here
- (1) 12″ Flocked Wreath – similar here
- 1 (2-pk) 6″ White Wreaths
- (2) Beaded Jute Garland Strands
- nails/hammer or command strips
- tape measure
- Buffalo check bows – 2 pk (optional)
I found my 24″ inch wreaths (with black buffalo check bows) at TJMaxx, and the rest of the supplies at Hobby Lobby.
- You can always do this project DIY-style, and feel free to mix and match supplies with whatever colors you like best.
- Just make sure to have different wreath sizes (24″, 12″ 6′ – like mine) or something similar.
- Try this cotton ball wreath (version) for white wreath alternative.
- Use ribbon instead of the jute string.
Ok, let’s get to the Easy 5-step tutorial Christmas Bedroom Wall Decor: Using Wreaths
***Go to the very end of the post for the picture with all of the measurements.***
Christmas Bedroom Wall Decor: Using Wreaths
Step 1: Hang Both Large (24″) Wreaths
For the first step, you will find the middle of your wall and mark it with a pencil at 93″H.
Our wall height is 9′ H – just a FYI.
Then go ahead and hammer in 2 nails 16″ (to the left and right of the center mark) at 87″H and hang each wreath onto the nails (or heavy duty command strips).
* I forgot to take a picture of this step, so just ignore the garland hanging on the bed for step 2 – LOL!!
I just wanted you to be able to see the spacing of the wreaths and the distance between the bed and the ceiling trim.
TIP: This is just what worked best for our bed height, wall height, and wall width. So you may have to tweak these measurements to fit your wall space.
Step 2: Tie Beaded Jute Garland Onto Curtain Rods (or wall)
Now you will tie a small knot around each of your curtain rods above your bed with your beaded jute string or ribbon.
My ties are at 99″H, and 44″ from the middle mark.
If you do not have curtains in your bedroom, or you are doing this on a blank wall, just make small nail holes again.
Here is an expanded view so that you can see the distance.
Basically you will want these wider and higher to create the “swag” look.
Step 3: Hang White Wreaths and Mark Center
Ok – this was kind of a chicken before the egg step for me, so I’ll try to explain it the best I can!! 😉
The easiest thing to do next is mark the center now with a nail or command strip. (You already had the pencil mark there, but now it’s time to make it official).
Then you will string the white wreath ornaments onto the jute garland at your chosen height. Mine draped at 43″W from the center mark, and 88″H.
TIP: You might have to add/attach a string (or ornament hook) if you are doing these DIY-style.
And now you will simply pull both of the jute garland strands onto the center nail, leaving a little extra for the center wreath.
Here is a bigger picture for you (us) visual learners – haha!
Step 4: Attach Center Wreath
Next you will simply add your center wreath – either to the nail, or tie the wreath with the jute garland like mine.
I went ahead and left my price tag “loop” thing-y on, so I could use it instead.
Just do whatever is easiest for you.
I also tied a little bow, but you can leave this hanging if you aren’t a “bow” girl – haha!!
Step 5: Swag Your Jute Garland
This swag step – will be more of a personal preference kind of step.
I just kind of let it drape behind the center wreath, and then let it fall on top of the large wreaths.
And you are done!!
Throw in some Christmas cheer pillows and snuggle up to a little winter wonderland!
Dimensions and Measurements at very end.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Love & Christmas Hugs 🙂
