Do you remember why the Grinch stole Christmas? He did it because 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 mementos 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.
Children love doing arts and craft projects, but after a while, there’s no room left on the fridge to display their little masterpieces. But, the holidays offer a unique time because they can make gifts using these free Christmas stencils for the whole family that will be highly cherished. And what fun you will all have!

Don't miss the Free
Christmas Tree Stencil Designs. They are just like the next two here but I will share some project ideas for using them in your Holiday Decorations.
You’ll save money by making homemade gifts, cards and decorations with these free Christmas Stencils! These days everyone 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!
Another tidbit about stencils: remember, open sections of a stencil are called islands. These are the areas that allow color to be applied on the surface under the stencil. Bridges are the stencil material that separates the islands and keeps the shape of a stencil. These areas block color or paint from reaching the surface.
Looking for a stress buster? Well, creating Christmas crafts 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.
Wait! Don’t just print your Free Christmas Stencils from this page and leave. You need to check out the Christmas Crafts Section for many more fun projects.
Cut-and-paint stencils are less expensive (unless of course they are free like these - like these Free Christmas Stencils!). You’re not paying for the manufacture, warehousing and shipping of a product. If you can find down-loadable stencil designs you can have your stencil immediately and no delay to your project. Here we offer some free stencils to get you started and a few in book format of our more complex designs. Do you want to see our catalog? Hop over to our
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 free Christmas stencils 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.
Want more free stencils and stencils to print? No problem! You'll find more at Free Stenciling Patterns (including a 2-Layer Fleur de lis Stencil). But that’s not all. Keep browsing around the site and you’ll find free stencils galore!
You can’t beat these free Christmas stencils! I hope they have inspired you to get started right away making art with stencils.
