Decorating A Kid’s Bunk Bed For Holidays

One of the few things I miss about living in a house is having room to store holiday decorations. At home, I had a few things to sit out for each holiday. I can’t justify keeping those things in the limited storage of my RV. There is too much other regular-use stuff that has to take a higher priority like seasonal clothes and tools.

One of the areas of the RV where I had unused space was in the box I keep under the bunks for extra bedding. I had about half that box free, so I thought, “What can I reasonably use this space for?”  I thought about it off and on for awhile. When the fall and winter holiday season began to roll around, I was beginning to miss having some special holiday decorations for my daughter to look at and enjoy. Then it hit me. I could decorate her bunk bed with special holiday themed sheets for each of the holidays!

So, I began shopping on Ebay for some good deals. After a few weeks, I had managed to find deals on a set of sheets for each of these holidays: Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween / Fall and Christmas. I bought used sheets for Halloween and Christmas because there really wasn’t much to be had at that time for those holidays. I got the Halloween sheets for 99 cents plus shipping! I am still looking for an American flag themed set for the Summer holidays.

My daughter loves her holiday sheets, and it’s just a small thing I’m doing to make her bunk bed space her own and to provide some holiday excitement.
I’ve had fun doing it, as well. The sheet sets fold up pretty small, and I still have some extra space in the box.

I can’t do the whole bed with blankets, comforters, etc. due to space and the fact that my daughter is really attached to her 2 fleece blankets she always sleeps with. You will see in the pictures that I don’t use a top sheet on her bunk. She doesn’t like to be encumbered with a top sheet so it always ends up wadded up in the corner or twisted everywhere. That’s alright with me because it gives me 2 sheets I can rotate for use as bottom sheets

Below are photos of the Christmas and Valentine’s Day sheets I used. I will post the Halloween and Easter sets when I find the time.

Valentine’s Day in the RV 2012

We had a happy first Valentine’s Day in the RV. I got lots of fun stuff and plenty of candy, and we even had a special dinner. Mommy put my Valentine’s heart sheets on the bed for the week. It was really festive.

The weekend before the holiday, we went to visit Mimi & Pop. They sent my Valentine’s Day gifts back with me. I really love my shirt! Mommy dressed me up, and we had a photo shoot outside.

Valentine’s Day RV Camper Decorations 2012

Me and Mommy made these hearts to decorate the camper for Valentine’s Day. Mommy cut the hearts, and I helped with the glue and glitter. I even helped string them on fishing line. We attached them to the window cornices with safety pins.

I had glitter all over my face!
