DIY Christmas Pyjamas

No holiday season is complete without cozy and festive Christmas Pyjamas. Despite the wealth of options available online and in stores, there’s a unique satisfaction and joy in creating your own. Here’s a simple and fun guide to personalise your holiday sleepwear, creating a memorable experience for both you and your loved ones.

Materials Needed

Before you begin, ensure you have the following:

  • Plain pyjamas (your preferred colour).
  • Fabric paints.
  • Fabric markers.
  • Assorted decorative items such as sequins, ribbons, and iron-on decals.
  • Irons.
  • Scissors.
  • Hot glue gun.

Steps to Create Your DIY Pyjamas

Step 1: Sketching Your Design

Think of a Christmas-themed design you love. It could be anything from Santa Claus, reindeer, Christmas trees, holly, snowflakes, or stars. Sketch your design lightly with a pencil on your pyjamas.

Step 2: Paint Your Design

Once you’re satisfied with your sketch, use the fabric paints and markers to colour your design. To prevent the paint from bleeding through to the other side of the pyjamas, ensure to put cardboard inside your pj’s before you start painting.

Step 3: Adding Decorations

Go a step beyond with twinkling sequins, festive ribbons, or cute iron-on decals. For safety purposes, an adult should handle attaching these decorations using the hot glue gun or iron.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Once the paint has dried, remove the cardboard. For the ultimate finishing touch, consider adding your name or initials to the collar of the pj’s or along the pant leg. This will give your sleepwear that extra personal touch.


Crafting your own Christmas pyjamas not only guarantees a unique and personal piece of sleepwear but also creates a wonderful holiday experience. You could even make this activity a new family tradition, something your loved ones can look forward to and enjoy together each year. Happy crafting, and may your holidays be warm and cozy!
