Our reading nook is my favorite place in our house! I love reading stories there every day and watching the kids hang out there with their books and toys. It’s fun to change out the books seasonally with books about different holidays. This year I decided to try to make it even a little more festive!

COZY HOLIDAY READING NOOK
I only did a few simple things to add some holiday spirit to this little space! We always display our library books on these shelves. We checked out some of our favorites and picked up a few new ones to read. One of our new favorites is When Posey Peeked at Christmas.
I also added a little trim to the shelves with Holiday Themed Washi Tape. It was so easy to apply and will just peel right off after the holidays. I’m thinking I may try to do this for every holiday. I also bought a cozy new throw blanket from Target and added one of our holiday stuffed animals.
I had purchased some pillow covers for our family room. Those pillows are needing to be replaced but it is much cheaper to just add a few cute pillow covers. I decided to use one in this area as well. It was a simple touch that definitely added to the coziness of the area.
The Twinkle Star Lights are my favorite addition to this space! We had some small white lights already strung here but these are so cute and festive. They are battery operated so you don’t have to worry about having somewhere to plug them in. I was able to hang them across our area with a couple of command hooks.
The kids love all the added decorations! We are also doing a Book a Day Advent Calendar to help celebrate this year. It will be fun to open and read the books in this space.

A lovely reading nook for the little ones… nothing better than getting cozy and reading a book together.
I love this. What a wonderful space to read and dream. Adding the simple touch of the washi tape makes it special for the Holidays.

We’re going to be painting our grandkid’s sleepover room after the holidays. You just gave me the best idea for over my grandson’s bed! Love how you turned yours into a holiday reading nook and pinned this to remind me to do that with his next year too. Thank you for the inspiration!

What a great reading nook decked out for the holidays! The kids must love it 🙂
What a fun place to snuggle & read! I see a book my daughter would love- Sparkles First Christmas, we don’t have any of those. Love it! I would snuggle & read books there too!
What a great idea for the kiddos! I love all the Christmas books and lights – so fun!
Great idea. I still read the little book of Christmas stories that I fell in love with as a kid. You’re building great Christmas memories.

Love this idea. I have a collection of children’s Christmas books that I display each year. I think it would be fun to create a little reading nook with them.

Thank you! I ordered mine from Walmart.com but they may not have it anymore. They have a similar one on Amazon though.
