Affordable and Adorable: 5 Ideas to Decorate Your Toddler Girl’s Bedroom

Let’s talk about making a cute toddler girl’s bedroom without spending too much money. A toddler’s room is where they sleep and play, so let’s see how we can decorate it on a budget.

I recently decorated my little niece’s bedroom. We wanted it to be full of rainbows and cuteness while keeping the costs low. After sharing a picture of the rainbow-painted wall, I thought you might like some budget-friendly ideas for decorating a toddler girl’s room.

Here are some ideas that I hope will inspire you:

  • Shop Smart: If you’re on a tight budget, check out dollar stores and Etsy for affordable items to decorate the bedroom. You can find cute and budget-friendly decor that adds a special touch to the room.
  • Do-It-Yourself Decorations: Get creative and make your own decorations. This could include crafting simple and cute items to hang or display in the room. It’s a fun way to add a personal touch without spending a lot.
  • Use What You Have: Look around your home for items you already have that can be repurposed for the toddler’s room. Sometimes, things you already own can fit perfectly into the decor, saving you money.

In my niece’s room, we used ideas from all these categories. Now, let’s take a little tour of her room, and I’ll show you where we saved money while keeping the room toddler-friendly.

1. DIY Rainbow Accent Wall for Toddler’s Room

Make your toddler girl’s room pop with a DIY rainbow accent wall. Using affordable acrylic paint, you can easily create a colorful focal point. Whether you choose a whimsical design or opt for ready-made murals, these accents bring joy to the room. Coordinate the color scheme with bedding for a vibrant and delightful space that your little one will love.

2.Toddler Bed Decor

When dressing up a toddler’s bed on a budget, check stores like Target, Walmart, or Ikea. Find affordable options, like a pink comforter and striped blanket, perfectly matching the room’s pink paint.

Utilize existing solid color pieces and enhance with new items like shams and throw pillows in her favorite colors. A cozy pillow from Target serves as a lovely accent. Consider adding stuffed animals, such as a unicorn, for a personalized touch reflecting your toddler’s preferences. Now, let’s explore budget-friendly decorations for the rest of the room, including wall art and accessories.

3.Affordable Toddler Wall Art: Printables

Decorating walls need not be expensive. Opt for affordable printables, available on Etsy for under $5, which you can frame. Our Etsy shop offers various printables, including pastel options. In my niece’s room, we framed these printables in inexpensive Walmart frames, printing them in a larger size for a bolder statement or smaller sizes for a gallery wall.

4.Bookcase Decor in Toddler Rooms

A bookcase in a toddler’s room serves dual purposes—storage with baskets and a designated space for books. Utilize unconventional spaces creatively, adding shelves for toy storage and decorations. Dollar store finds, such as plants, baskets, and signs, can adorn the top shelves. Incorporate children’s books creatively, organizing them by color or theme, making books both fun and decorative. Utilize existing items from your home, like a bunny bank used as a bookend.

5.DIY Toddler Decor Project: Pom Pom Garland

Complete the toddler room decor with a simple and inexpensive DIY project—a pom pom garland. Crafting pompom garlands is fun, cost-effective, and adds an adorable touch to a kid’s room. Match the yarn garland to your color scheme for cohesion.


Decorating kids’ rooms is incredibly enjoyable, with countless ideas and themes to choose from. Whether it’s your child or niece, the joyous reaction to the final result is priceless! In adding final touches, consider a small, space-efficient lamp for the nightstand. Keep the nightstand decor-free, allowing your toddler to personalize the space or make room for bedtime stories.

On top of the chest of drawers, a safe spot for decorations out of reach was perfect. Colors from a sign bought at Hobby Lobby inspired the paint for the rainbow wall mural. Utilize books creatively, like the ones under the llama, using layering to enhance visual appeal.

These cute ideas aim to inspire your toddler’s room decor. Are you ready to embark on decorating your toddler’s bedroom? You’ve got this!
