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!
So what do you think of our Scandinavian Christmas printables? Let us know in the comments!
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.
Also, if you don’t have a large format printer like Canon i8720 Printer (prints up to 13×19 inches) and are wondering the best place to get these 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.
