Best Festive DIY Christmas Bathroom Decor Ideas 1






How Do I Decorate My Bathroom for Christmas?

The good news is with a little bit of planning, you’ll be prepared in advance of the holiday season.

This will give you plenty of time to find Christmas bathroom decor items that fit your desired look and theme.

There are plenty of resources and inspiration by visiting Pinterest or even Hobby Lobby to envision the perfect design even if the size of your bathroom isn’t perfect. 

What’s the Best Way to Decorate My Bathroom for Christmas Quickly?


If you are pressed for time, there are easy additions to quickly take a plain bathroom and fill it with the holiday spirit.

For example, you can quickly switch out a plain shower curtain with a Christmas-themed shower curtain, matching Christmas bath rugs, and a few details like snow globes, Christmas figurines, evergreen garlands, some Christmas wreaths, a holiday soap dispenser, and Christmas hand towels, too. 

How Do I Tastefully Decorate My Bathroom for Christmas?


There are a variety of fun ways to bring holiday cheer into the bathroom like adding mini wreaths on the walls or adding a decorative Christmas tray on the bathroom counter.

Easily add some evergreen plants or a tiny Christmas tree to add a holiday mood and feel to the space.

For some added inspiration and ideas for fun and festive DIY Christmas bathroom decor ideas, I headed over to Amazon to see what was new for this season. 



Here are 15 fun and festive DIY Christmas bathroom decor ideas that are easy to order and add some Christmas cheer to your bathrooms.

1. Add a Festive Shower Curtain to the Christmas Bathroom

DIY Christmas Bathroom Decor Shower Curtain Ideas


If you are looking for a quick and easy way to add a little bit of holiday cheer to your bathroom and even have guests talking long after the holiday season has come and gone, consider investing in a new shower curtain.

These items are not only functional; they are also decorative, and they come in a wide variety of designs and patterns.


Choosing a shower curtain that has a festive look will give you an easy way to incorporate a festive touch into your daily life during the holiday season.



2. Upgrade the Bathroom Accessories to Christmas Style

DIY Christmas Bathroom Decor accessory Ideas


Switching out the everyday bathroom accessories with holiday-themed ones is a simple and easy switch that is also budget-friendly.

For example, switch out a plain toothbrush holder for a Christmas one.

Or perhaps add a fun Christmas soap dispenser to the counter.


These bathroom accessories won’t take up too much space but add some festive cheer even to a small space.


3. Change Up the Hand Towels on the Towel Rack to Christmas Bathroom Sets

Switching everyday hand towels for holiday-themed ones is a great and easy way to add fun vibes to the bathroom, even if you don’t have much time to decorate. 


Adding a simple bath hand towel will create a festive look and be a great, budget-friendly option.


The Grinch hand towels are very popular this season.




4. Decorative Bathroom Christmas Trays Look Festive and Fun

Unique DIY Christmas Bathroom Decor Ideas


To make a big difference, even in a plain white bathroom, is to add a decorated Christmas tray filled with different designs of festive decorations.


You could add tiny Christmas presents (fake ones of course) into the tray to make it really pop.

If you don’t feel like creating your own Christmas bathroom decor tray, consider finding one that is pre-made and ready to go!



5. Add a Tiny Tree or Mini Christmas Tree for the Bathroom Sink Area

Generally speaking, the Christmas tree is the main event in the living room, however, a small Christmas tree in the bathroom will be a great addition and an easy way to add a fun flair to the bathroom, too.



6. Fake Evergreen Plants or Poinsettias Look Great as Part of the Christmas Bathroom Decor

In addition to the Christmas tree, plants and poinsettias are a staple of the holidays.


If you have pets, I recommend adding fake Christmas flowers to the bathroom.

Fake poinsettias and flowers provide a happy holiday feel but are safe.




7. Simple Shelf Displays Look Great on Christmas Bathroom Shelving Units

Beautiful DIY Christmas Bathroom Decor Ideas


Once you’ve added the fake Christmas plants, place them on a shelf in the bathroom.


Bathroom shelves can be styled in a ton of different ways to really bring the spirit of the season into the bathroom.

Use your own ideas and style to really pull the room together.

Consider adding some mason jars, pinecones, or glass jars filled with faux pines or other Christmas holidays-inspired items.



8. A Christmas Bathroom Snow Globe are Great Ideas

As an 80s baby, I remember everyone always picking up snow globes as presents from trips.

This nostalgic idea would be a great DIY Christmas bathroom decor idea that adults and children will love.


It won’t take a lot of time to add it to a bathroom window surrounded by festive curtains, fresh greenery, and maybe some pre-lit battery-operated Christmas lights.



9. Upgrade the Bath Rug for Big Christmas Decor Impact

If you are pressed for time but want a big impact, the first thing you should do is switch out the bath rugs with holiday-themed ones.


Since bath rugs are something that’s quickly noticed and easy to switch, this makes it a perfect thing to change.




10. Bathroom Candy Cane Candles are Cute

The red and white candy canes are always a fun inspiration to any holiday room like the dining room but can also be a fun bathroom decoration.

Add a candy cane-themed candle to the bathroom for fun decor.




11. Evergreen Garland or Christmas Wreaths Look Great in the Holiday Themed Bathroom

If you already have a hanging decoration in the bathroom, store it and replace it with some Christmas wreaths or evergreen wreaths.

In addition, add some evergreen garland to the mirror or surrounding areas for additional Christmas cheer.




12. Ornaments Look Great for Festive Holiday Christmas Bathroom Decor Ideas

Another way to add some holiday spirit to your Christmas bathroom is by adding holiday ornaments to your bathroom walls.

Chances are that your holiday ornament already has a string and this will make it a quick and easy addition to your holiday bathroom walls – or even hand them from the ceiling.


To make sure you don’t damage your walls add some 3M command hooks to easily remove without adding holes to hang. 


13. Change to a Backlit LED Bathroom Mirror to Show Christmas Colors

Many bathroom mirrors offer backlit or lighted features and can be changed to any color.

Adjust the backlit colors to red or green to add a fun and unique look to the bathroom mirror.

14. Christmas Bathroom Sets are an Easy Upgrade to Your Holiday Home

If you aren’t one to grab a bunch of different things and pull them all together into a space – grab a Christmas bathroom set for a cohesive Christmas look. 

There are so many wonderful Christmas bathroom set choices.

Be sure to add great options to the bathroom décor – even to the front of the toilet.



15. Santa Claus Figurines are Fun Christmas Bathroom Decor Ideas

If you are working with a small bathroom or powder room, just add some Santa Claus figurines to the counter area for a fun and easy way to pop in the holiday spirit.
