Free Scandinavian Christmas Printables
Deck your halls with some fun and beautiful Nordic whimsy this holiday season with these FREE Scandinavian Christmas Printables!
Have you ever wondered how and why Christmas decor trends change from year to year?
Like when everything went all buffalo plaid.
And the year vintage crept back into the popular crowd.
Who starts these trends? And who distributes the memo so that everyone from Walmart to Walgreens is in on the action?
I imagine it starts in March or April, when the Fat Cats come out of hibernation.

There’s The Big Man stuffed into a brown 3-piece suit. His brow drips sweat as he chomps a tattered cigar. He owns one of the Big Companies that make All The Stuff.
Then there’s The Long Woman, whose long slim-fitting red dress is only rivaled by her long stockinged legs. She’s worn a white fox fur around her neck since the 1960s, and she has no plans to stop wearing it now that the weather is warm and PETA is calling for her head. She owns another of the Big Companies.
The Long Woman and The Big Man sit at a round table with all the other Titans of Industry. There’s a Chinese delegation at the table, too, their factories warmed up and ready to churn out countless tons of plastic baubles that will litter our shores by summer’s end.
They sit, and they look at each other.
“Well? What’ll it be this year?” The Big Man says.
“How about an Irish Christmas?” Someone at the table offers. “Everything green and white!”
“Green and White plastic!” Shouts one of the Chinese delegation.
The Long Woman looks at the man who suggested this and sneers.
“No!” The Long Woman says. “Buffalo Plaid.”
A dozen heads nod up and down, and the Big Man blows an approving ring of cigar smoke. They are in agreement.
“Buffalo Plaid plastic!” Shouts the Chinese delegation as the meeting adjourns.
Okay, so maybe it doesn’t happen exactly like that. Who knows, really?
But this year, we’ve noticed a Scandinavian/Nordic design trend in Christmas decor. We’ve seen it in a bunch of different shops, so the memo is definitely out.
So keeping in the spirit of the times, and because our goal is to give you the most options when it comes to seasonal decor, here is our selection of FREE Scandinavian Christmas printables!

Free Scandinavian Christmas Printables
Today’s free Scandinavian Christmas printables are designed to fit 8.5×11 and 16×20 inch frames. The 8.5×11 inch sized printables are PDFs, so they are not scalable. But the 16×20 inch printables are JPEGs, so you can scale them down to 12×15 / 8×10 / 4×5 inches with no problems. If you need help with scaling down these printables so you can print them using your home printer, then make sure you check out Handan’s “How To Easily Resize Pictures” post.
Note: If you don’t have a large format printer like the Canon i8720 Printer (prints up to 13×19 inches) and are wondering the best place to get these large printables printed bigger than 8×12, we recommend trying Staples in your area or Amazon print shop. Both stores offer custom-sized prints on matte or glossy paper, and they both cost about the same. Staples also offers Engineering Prints, which are really affordable for large-format prints, but in some areas (like ours), they must be ordered from their online print shop.

Greg and Handan,
These printables are gorgeous. I shall print out four for a grouping in our living room, and a couple for the bedrooms. I just love the gaiety and the bright colors, yet the soft watercolors are just so pleasing and remind me to curl up on the couch with a soft blanket and cup of hot chocolate. You are doing a great job. I love your patent art as well.
Thank you so much, Barbara!I’m so happy you are enjoying our printables. 🙂 Merry Christmas to you!
These are wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing.
Thank you, Laurie – you are most welcome! 🙂
Loving all the Christmas printables. I’m seeing the need for a new printer in my near future so I can print these in the large sizes. You and Handan do lovely work.
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!
Thank you so much, Madeline! Oh yes, a new printer would be perfect! Check out our gift guides to see the one we love! 🙂

I just love all your printables, they’re beautiful! It’s funny you should mention buffalo plaid; I was looking at a comforter set today with that very same red buffalo plaid. hmm
Enjoy the holiday season!
Thank you, Michele! We love buffalo plaid, too! 🙂
Hello I love all the Christmas Printables. Thank you so very much for allowing all of us to use them. I appreciate the things you do for your subscribers. You are grrrreat. Because of you my house will be more homey this year
Awwww, I’m so glad, Roxann! And we’ll be sharing even more! 🙂
Greg and Handan,
Absolutely love all of your work and so appreciate all that goes into it ! There are times I’m not sure I follow the blog for sheer giggles I get from the writing of trials and tribulations of creating or the inspirations coming to fruition ! My husband and I just got back from a wonderful Thanksgiving trip where I brought an entire tablescape of the same blue and white china pumpkin (auction find) and napkin pumpkins ………I’d scored lovely blue and white embroidered linens complete with silvery blue candles . We also did a Christmas exchange which included a Scandinavian Dala Horse cookie jar (for centerpiece -or cookies) . We are of Scandinavian heritage SO ……..how could I not love these new printables ? My own collection of Christmas -Scandinavian Style on Pinterest is getting really BIG (always room). I made both girls Advent calendars from chair webbing with ribbon trims – bordering Scandinavian design with yardstick numbers (that Mr Man -patiently cut for me) – yes, he thinks I’m a bit off also until he sees the final result. Throw in three sets of Victorian gilded walnuts – I just passed on a set to my grand daughter (family tradition) ……….that’s when he thought I was totally nuts. the other sets were updates to the daughters.
I’m loving the patent prints and botanicals – maybe I can reduce the stacks of picture frames everyone thinks I’m hoarding just to be hoarding (oh, so wrongly).
Thanks for Caring and Sharing.
Hi Sara! Oh cool! I’m so happy to hear that our Scandinavian printables are officially Scandinavian approved, lol! 😀 I love the idea of an entire blue and white tablescape – I bet that looked amazing!

Oh cool, that will be a fun Christmas!
