Christmas Bed DIY Decor
- Insulation Sheathing
- General tools (measuring tape, razor, tape or command strips)
I love my bed frame, but day after day it does get a little boring. So, I wanted to spice it up a bit for Christmas.
So, I came up with this Christmas bed DIY.

Surprisingly, using this Insulation sheet under $20 turned into an awesome DIY project that allowed it to happen.
The insulation sheathing was 4ft by 8ft in size, and extremely lightweight.
I measured the length of the side board on my bed. It was 80″ long, and 7″ high. So, I used a razor blade to cut the sheathing just a little shorter than this.
Then I purchased some batting and 3 yards of a festive fabric that I loved. I cut the fabric in half lengthwise, so I’d have fabric for both sides of my bed frame.
I laid down the fabric (face down), then placed the batting on top of it. And then, finally, added the sheathing piece on top.
The next step was simple. I just wrapped the insulation with the batting and fabric, securing it with a staple gun.
You could also use duct tape or a glue gun. Whatever you have on hand will work.
I wrapped the sides over and secured those as well.
The next step was to find a way to secure my DIY project to the bed itself. I used command strips with Velcro for this.
I pressed the fabric covered insulation onto the side panel of my bed. This would also work for a metal frame bed.
After that, I used the leftover fabric to sew some pillows, along with some coordinating fabrics. I also covered my rug with a white snowy fabric that was on sale. It felt nice underfoot and looked like a winter wonderland.
I love the way it turned out, and hope you’ll have fun updating your bed with the fabric that suits your style the best!
