Here is a collection of free stencils
suitable for using at Christmas. The stencils are arranged as an online advent calendar,
which you could share with your children. You could either visit this page daily, or save the images you like best right now.
Scroll to see the Advent Calendar and Click on individual
pictures to print off a stencil. Carefully use a craft knife or small
pointed scissors to cut away the white areas of paper. For the full
effect on the wider stencils in the column for numbers 3, 7 and 23 set your
printer to print as landscape format or size them by inches or centimetres
yourself to suit you. You can also print them onto Overhead Projector
film as then they are washable and can be used year after year.
Use the free
stencils for decorating windows, cakes, friezes in schools and play schools
or just for fun at home on a rainy day. Size them all to small squares
and make your own advent calendar in felt by adding one item every day.
Happy stencilling in Advent.

If you make these free Christmas stencils outlines larger, then they are suitable for larger rooms like classrooms. If made daintier and smaller, then you can use
them with coloured food powders on cakes. The stencils can also be used
to make scenes and collages when coloured by individual children and amassed
as a group work. White snow paint can be used with them for windows or
gold paint for table linen or trays. You can also make them in black
card and use coloured cellophane behind them to create stained glass
effects for light catchers or classroom friezes.
Enlarge the thumbnails and either print off whilst online,
or save the Christmas stencils to your graphics folder or in
My Pictures or in a special folder you make called Christmas. You can also print them off at the size you wish using the
printer set up guide and adjusting the scale. You can also
import these free Christmas stencils into a Microsoft Word document and enlarge or reduce them
there by dragging the corners of the picture in or out and perhaps
making a work sheet from them for class or nursery use.
