Black White Christmas Silhouettes



                

This page on Clipartqueen has a lot of different  silhouettes with Christmas motives, like Holly, reindeer, Santa and his sledge.

They are all free silhouettes, and you can use them as you like, as long as you take care to follow the two very simple rules for using my material. These two rules you can find on Homepage.




If you want Christmas drawings in color, I suggest you visit some of the other pages on this site with Christmas clip art. You will find these pages listed on the page Christmas pictures.

No other celebration during the year calls for reams of decorations quite like Christmas does. While you may decorate for Halloween, birthdays and even Easter – it tends to be Christmas when people go all out decorating everything from their homes and offices, to their cars and even outside yards.

The beautiful Christmas silhouettes available on this page will enable you to make stunning and complete unique Christmas decorations for your home and wherever else you choose to display them. Of course, you don't need to let your creative stop you there – why not use these free silhouettes on Christmas cards, as gift tags or as place settings on your traditional Christmas dinner table.

The only limit is your imagination, so go on – use these black silhouettes to make sure you have a truly memorable festive season.

Make Your Own Decorations



Making your own decorations is not nearly as difficult as it sounds and all you need is card or paper, a printer, string and maybe glitter or confetti – to give your decs a truly Christmas sparkle. So, here goes, learn how to make simple, yet striking, streamers -

1. Choose the Christmas silhouettes you like the best. There is a whole host of pictures to choose from including, festive wreaths, reindeer, bells, holly, stars, baubles and more. Choose a couple of designs, so you can alternate them on your streamers.

2. You will need to print off several copies of each image you have chosen. The beauty of these Christmas silhouettes is they look great large or small. Aim to print at A4 size and if you have two designs, print eight of each one. If you have chosen four designs, you will need to print two of each one and so forth.

3. Measure a piece of craft string, using a ruler or tape measure, making it as long as you want – this will obviously be dictated by where you plan to hang your streamers such as, your walls or ceiling.

4. Using a hole punch or the tip of a sharpened pencil, make a hole in each of your silhouette print outs, this will allow you to thread each one on to your string.

5. Remembering to alternate each design, gently thread each silhouette on to the string. Tie a knot in the string after each one to prevent movement and try to leave an even gap between each one.

6. Once all your silhouettes are on the string, you will have a streamer you can proudly display along a wall or across a ceiling.

Top Tip – Once you have printed your Christmas silhouettes, why not embellish them a little with glitter, sequins or Christmas-themed confetti all of which will add a little sparkle to your creation. Alternatively, if you fancy a little color along with your black silhouettes, you will find plenty of free colorful Christmas clip art images on this website.


I like very much this Santa's Sleigh with two cute reindeer in front.

Make Your Own Christmas Cards



Christmas is an expensive time of year, what with gifts, food, drink and all the other trimmings, therefore, cutting down on expenses during the festive season can only be a bonus. Many people who have never made their own cards before may think the process sounds tacky but it is amazing what you can create with just a few pieces of card stock, clip art and other embellishments. In fact, the intended recipients of your cards are likely to be more impressed with a handmade Christmas card than they would be an expensive shop-bought alternative. The beautiful Christmas silhouettes on my website really lend themselves well to cards, so why not try it out for yourself and give your nearest and dearest a card to remember this year.


1. Choose your silhouette designs. An elegant Christmas wreath is ideal for older adults, while Santa's sleigh or a cute gingerbread man will look great on cards for children.

2. Print off your chosen designs, using either card or paper. You can then add the cut-outs to a prefolded piece of card stock in whatever design you like. If you want greetings and sentiments to appear on the front and inside of your card, you can print these onto the card before you add your silhouette clipart. Alternatively, you can add text to your card using a colored glitter pen.

3. You can jazz up your cards even further by adding glitter, buttons, confetti or other embellishments to the card alongside the cut-outs.



Top Tip – If you print several copies of the same design, such as a Christmas tree, you can create a 3D effect (known as decoupage) by stacking your tree in layers using double-sided foam squares or glue. This Channel Four website (http://www.channel4.com/4homes/how-to/craft/how-to-decoupage) has an interesting and easy-to-follow tutorial on making decoupage, which will really make the most of your Christmas silhouettes.

I have made this drawing of a reindeer after a photo taken in the zoo in Copenhagen.

I think this photo must be  taken before Christmas, because the reindeer looks as if is could need some exercise, if it has to pull Santa's sleigh all over the planet.

Easy-to-Do Gift Tags



Gift tags allow you to let your gift recipients know exactly who gave them that particular gift, as well as including a greeting. As well as making your own Christmas decorations and cards, you can use the top-quality selection of Christmas silhouettes on this website to create your own personal gift tags. This is a really simple process but the end result is beautiful.


1. Choose which of the free silhouettes you want to use as gift tags. Although completely your choice, you may find that the Christmas tree, stars and baubles are ideal for this project. You will need to print them out on to black or white card, which ever you believe suits the picture best. Don't forget to make them a fairly decent size, so you can fit on names and a greeting.

2. Once printed off, use a hole punch or a sharpened pencil to make a hole at the top of each Christmas silhouette. You can then thread through string or yarn, if you want the tags to look particularly glam try using silver or gold yarn.

3. You can then add your chosen wording, using a silver or gold gel pen for those on black card- this will improve visibility of your salutation. You can keep the tags plain or bling them up a little with colored glitter. The end result will be completely unique gift tags, your family and friends will love.

Top Tip – Why not match up your cards and gift tags, by using the same Christmas silhouettes on both your Christmas cards and gift tags.
