Christmas Tree Template Ideas
If you’re looking for some fun ideas for using these free printable Christmas tree templates, you are in luck – there are so many things you can do!
Doodle, Draw and Zentangle
I love using Christmas tree shape silhouettes to use as a template for doodling and zentangle! These shapes make for the perfect backdrop to create your own unique patterned designs.
You could also print these out and draw on them with colored pencils or color in with crayons – just add your own ornaments and decorations!
If you prefer to draw on your iPad in an app like Procreate, download the png files above to easily import them into your canvas!
Make an Advent Calendar
These evergreen tree templates would be perfect to use for making your very own Advent Calendar or Countdown to Christmas calendar!
You could use the trees as a backdrop, or even use the PNGs to create smaller shapes you cut out with your Silhouette or Cricut machine and use each tree as a countdown.
Of course, the possibilities are endless if you love to sew and working with fabric!
You could make a fabric collage, or trace these templates onto pieces of fabric you applique to tote bags, pillow cases or even Christmas stockings!
Many of the simpler, geometric tree shapes would be perfect to use as quilt blocks for warm holiday blankets, table runners, and other handmade Christmas gifts.
You could also use these as a pattern for embroidery – I know I will be using them for my Christmas crazy quilting projects!
Use As a Stencil or Mask for Painting
Another fun idea is to use these as a stencil or mask for painting – whether you like to paint with acrylic paints or watercolor!
To use them as a stencil or mask, print them out onto a sheet of paper and then fold the sheet of paper in half. Cut out your design from the center of the paper on the fold.
You can use the part you cut out as a mask – a beautiful thing to do with watercolor paints or by dabbing acrylic paints around it with a makeup brush.
As a stencil, you could stencil these designs onto almost anything, whether it’s paper, canvas, wood signs, tote bags, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and more! Designing your own Christmas gifts just got a whole lot easier!
Make Gift Tags
These printable evergreen trees would also be great for making holiday gift tags and labels. Simply punch a hole in the top and attach to your gifts with ribbon or twine, or you can print them out onto sticker paper and cut out for easy one-of-a-kind gift tags!
Create Labels for Homemade Gifts
There are so many fun and easy homemade gifts you could make for your family and friends, and these Christmas tree templates would be perfect for making labels on handmade gifts of soaps, baking mixes, soup mixes, candles and more!
Use for Woodburning
Love woodburning? These templates are a great way to create a wood burned Christmas tree quickly and easily!
Decorate Your home or Classroom
You could also use these to make decorations for your home or classroom. You could print them out on pretty patterned paper or even matte and frame them against a patterned paper border.
These trees are also great for bulletin boards or as I said earlier, a quick and easy way to instantly “spruce” anything up! (Haha, get it? SPRUCE it up? I know, terrible pun but I love it!)
Use for Activities and Games
You could also use these for a wide variety of different holiday games and activities, whether you’re looking for something fun for your next Christmas gathering or need ideas for school holiday parties.
Here are some games you could make with these:
- Matching Games
- Scavenger Hunts
- Counting Games
Write a Christmas Themed Poem!
These template shapes are great for making concrete poems or you can use them as a pretty way to show off your latest Christmas poems.
Use for Journals and Planners
If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you know that I always suggest making journals out of shapes – so why not make a journal shaped like a Christmas tree? It’s easy with these free templates!
You could also use them in junk journals or even your bullet journal or planner. The PNG files make it easy for you to quickly customize them for your own personal needs!
