Free Printable Christmas Stencils for Cards, Party Decorations

Why spend big on Christmas party decorations or holiday greeting cards? You can make your own crafts with recycled materials and free printable patterns from the internet. Use these online Christmas templates to create neat projects. Along with Christmas stencils (Christian and secular), there are Hanukkah and winter stencils too. I suggest  transferring free printable stencils onto recycled cardboard cereal boxes then cut them out with an X-acto knife. You might also transfer stencils (using permanent marker) onto purchased stencil plastic called Mylar, available at Hobby Lobby, Jo-Anne Fabrics and other craft venues. I always look for the green option, so if you want plastic stencils, trace your free printable stencils onto thin sheets of plastic from your recycle bin (milk jugs, plastic packaging etc).  read more
