Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas Themed Bedroom Decor Ideas

Nightmare Before Christmas Comforter & 2 Pillow cases
Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas remains one of the most iconic holiday movies of all time, enjoyed by girls and boys of all ages, and this makes it the perfect theme for a bedroom! This post is going to be looking at all of my favorite Nightmare Before Christmas themed bedroom accessories, so read on and discover some truly spooky ideas.

Nightmare Before Christmas Themed Bedding

Sheet Set
First things first, every bedroom big or small needs a scary bed to be the centerpiece of the theme. There isn't much Nightmare Before Christmas themed bedding out there, but I've managed to find a few good ones: the comforter set featured at the top of this page is a great example, and it comes with the comforter and two matching pillows. Secondly we have the kooky Jack Skellington and Zero themed sheet set on the right, which comes with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two standard sized pillow cases.

If you are shopping on a budget and want an alternative, a good idea is to pair your existing black or grey sheets with a Nightmare Before Christmas themed blanket, such as this cute Jack and Sally fleece throw, or this Jack Skellington on a Moon background blanket.

Nightmare Before Christmas Themed Wall Decor

With the bed made, its time to decorate the walls. A number of colors will work in a Nightmare Before Christmas: anything gothy or spooky such as greys, purples, dark greens and even a bold orange will look wonderful. I wouldn't go for black, however, as it will make the room look very dark and small. Go for a medium shade of grey instead!

Once the wall are painted, don't leave them bare! There are many ways you can add life to the blank space between your furniture, and a great place to start is with a cool wall decal, like the Sally and Jack spiral hill decal featured above! They are easy to apply and remove, and they don't leave marks on your walls when you take them off. Pretty convenient!

Alternatively, you could buy a few Nightmare Before Christmas themed movie posters to decorate your walls. I particularly like the one on the left, which even glows in the dark!

Nightmare Before Christmas Themed Bedroom Accessories

Last but not least, add the finishing touches to your new bedroom with some fun Nightmare Before Christmas bedroom accessories, such as a big pile of plushies to hug all day long! I recommend checking out the plush set above, which comes with five adorable character plushies.

Another great idea is to pick up some Nightmare Before Christmas themed figurines and ornaments to decorate your shelves, cabinets and windowsill with. My favorite is the high-quality, stunning Jim Shore Pumpkin King figurine featured on the right. You can also get a simply adorable figurine featuring Sally here. Shop around and pick up all of your favorite characters in ornament form!

So there you have it, my guide to decorating a Nightmare Before Christmas themed bedroom. I hope you found some great ideas and have a tonne of fun decorating your new room.
