I like a little bit of Christmas in every room of the house and although it doesn’t always (or ever) happen that way I do try to find a few ways to bring Christmas vibes into the kids’ rooms.
A festive garland, mobile made from ornaments, countdown chain, cozy sheets, kid made artwork (like Espen’s snowman he painted a couple years ago that makes my mama heart melt), does the trick when displayed together or alone.
Another option and one of my favorites (other than the kids art, of course) is decking the walls with a seasonal art print. A few weeks ago I started making a “FA LA LA” poster to put above Tilly’s bed and ended up making 3 other designs. Of course, what’s the point in designing stuff if I’m not going to share so you can download all 4 below!

And if there aren’t any unused frames laying around the house or you would like a fresh, new way to hang up a poster try turning it into a wall hanging using a couple pieces of wood and a leather string or ribbon.
- 8 foot 1×2 inch piece of lumber
- leather string or ribbon for hanging
- drill and drill bit the size of the string your using
- staple gun (really strong glue might work?)
- cute art print
- Cut 2 pieces of the lumber about 1/2-inch wider than or the same width as the print. If you don’t have a way to do this at home, ask someone at the hardware store to do it for ya.
- In one of the cut pieces of lumber, measure 1/2 to 1-inch in from the edge and drill a hole your string or ribbon can snuggly fit through… remember you can always make it bigger if it doesn’t fit.
- Thread the string or ribbon through the holes and knot the ends.
- Staple lumber to the top and bottom of your print and hang!
Happy Thursday + hall decking + merrymaking + Christmas and oh, my I’m glad it’s almost Friday!
