Twinkle Lights in Kids Rooms

Twinkle Lights in Kids Rooms

Of course, we've seen lots of uses for twinkle lights during the holidays, and even some great ideas for using them year round in your house. But we also love twinkle lights for kids' rooms, where you can use them to make the room a little more special, created a themed room, or even create a custom night light.

Now that LED versions that don't emit heat are readily available, there are even more options for using twinkle lights in kids' rooms.


1. Choose an unusual shape or size of light and string them across the ceiling for a different feel, like these All' Aperto string lights from Napa Style, featured in this Santa Cruz boy's room at Houzz, photographed by Shannon Malone.

2. Make a pendant twinkle light to hang from the ceiling like Rachel from Smile and Wave.
3. A vibrant twinkle light wreath lights up the room in Addy's Bedroom Bliss.
4. Lights on the ceiling in Wolf's Nature-Inspired Room in Belgium.
5. This cloud and stars light from Funky Junk Interiors is part of a castle bedroom, but you could use them for almost any theme.

6. Another idea from Smile and Wave turns the pendant light on its side. Literally: the Wall Twinkle Light is attached to a wall like a sideways sconce.
7. A single strand of twinkle lights hung from the ceiling add warmth to Brigsby's Carnival room.
8. Make Twinkle Light Canopies like these from Chatting at the Sky with some sheer curtains and strings of lights.
9. A twinkle light canopy above Tessa Jean's bed in her Sassy & Bright Big Girl Room.
10. Build a fort with sheets and lights, or buy one like this Twinkle Light Fort from Banana J Creations, via Tout Mon Amour.
