Free Printable Christmas Stencils

Just in time! Here are some Free Printable Christmas Stencils for all of your Christmas Art Activities!

 

Ginger Bread Man StencilKids love doing arts and craft projects, but after a while, there’s no room left on the fridge to display their little masterpieces. The holidays offer a unique time because they can make gifts for the whole family that will be highly cherished. And what fun you will all have!

Check out these Christmas Art Projects where you'll find ways to use stencils in making 3-D decorations.

Are you new to working with paper stencils? If so (or even if not) you should know that you can prepare your paper stencils so that they can be used again and again. Yeah! That’s right. The one you just printed can become a long term free stencil. It’s easy. Do you have some of that clear, wide packing tape? Just use it to run even strips covering all of the paper surfaces before you cut out the stencil. Burnish or rub the tape down to get the air pockets out. That’s it.

By the way, I like to do just the top side of the paper. If the bottom is slick it can encourage paint to bleed under the stencil and smudge your surface. The underside may get wet when you wash it but just let it dry and you can flatten it back out by storing it in a book.

Don't miss the Holiday Crafts Page that is loaded with fun ideas!

Christmas Tree StencilYou can save lots of money by making homemade gifts, cards and decorations with these free Printable Christmas Stencils! These days we all can use a little of this. But don’t feel guilty. A gift should never have a dollar obligation amount attached to it. It really is about what comes from the heart and a homemade gift shows that you took the time to make something special for a loved one and what is more valuable than your time. Besides with some great ideas you’ll be delivering gifts that everyone will enjoy!

Remember why the Grinch stole Christmas? He was tired of all the commercialism. I can sympathize. I long for the times when Christmas was more about spending time with loved ones and less about stressing over finding the perfect gift; when little handmade objects were more valuable than a department store gift card. Just call me sentimental, but my favorite part of Christmas is getting together with friends to make cookies, spending time with the kids coloring Santa Claus pictures and conjuring up any Christmas crafts that I can think up.

Printable Christmas StencilLooking for a stress buster? Well, creating with Christmas Craft Ideas is a great way to reduce stress for a couple of good reasons. First, if you make some great gifts and decorations, that’s less time in the stores and malls (and what’s more stressful than fighting the crowds and worrying about if what you bought is the perfect gift). Second, it’s very relaxing and enjoyable to create. Not to mention that you will feel uplifted and motivated to think about the nice gifts that you are making for the special people in your life.

Cut-and-paint stencils are less expensive (unless of course they’re free like these!). You’re not paying for the manufacture, warehousing and shipping of a product. If you can find downloadable stencil designs you can have your stencil immediately and no delay to your project.

Well, I hope you enjoy these Free Printable Christmas Stencils and I hope they have inspired you to get started right away making art with stencils. Enjoy!

Merry Christmas and Happy Stenciling,
Penny
