5 Easy Fall and Winter Accents for your Nursery

Decorating the inside or outside of your house for the fall and winter holidays is a great way to celebrate this festive time of year. When adding those decorative touches to the interior of your home, don’t forget to include baby’s nursery in your plans. There are many easy ways to add some seasonal cheer to your little one’s room without investing lots of time or money.

Go for garlands

One of the simplest ways to add a whimsical seasonal touch to baby’s nursery is by using a garland. Garlands can be affordable to buy, but if you want to DIY there are many sites online offering easy instructions and ideas. For a festive fall look, try making or buying a felt ball garland featuring rich autumn colors such as orange, brown, red and dark green. To add a touch of winter, pick up a garland of white paper stars or snowflakes. Of course, you should never hang garland on, or anywhere near, baby’s crib.

Add meaningful light

Light plays an important role in many cultural and religious holidays that take place during the fall and winter seasons. The symbol of light is present in Diwali, Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa celebrations. By framing the nursery window with a simple strand of white lights, you can add a soothing and symbolic glow to baby’s room that can last through both fall and winter. If you celebrate Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, you can safely add a battery-operated menorah or kinara to baby’s room.

Get whimsical wall decals

Peel and stick. What could be easier? Wall decals are a wonderful decorating option for adding seasonal and holiday cheer to baby’s nursery. Larger decals can also be used to dramatically change the look of your little one’s room without a major makeover. Decals of trees, autumn-colored leaves, acorns or woodland animals can help spruce up the nursery for fall. When it comes to winter, you can try a holiday decal or choose snowflakes, skiing images or even words or sayings that help create a winter theme.

Try branching out

For a look that can bridge both fall and winter, turn to nature. Incorporate real, bare branches into your decorating and you’ll have a unique and natural accent that will get noticed in the nursery. To create a shelf or dresser display, gather various branches and then glue on felt or paper leaves before placing them in a vase. 

Add an art gallery

Pick up some inexpensive picture frames at a thrift or discount store and create a fall or winter themed art gallery in baby’s nursery. You can print your images or recycle old magazines, calendars, catalogs and holiday cards. After framing, you can create a mini seasonal art gallery by grouping all the pictures together on a wall or shelf.
